Davis, who is also known as the relationship strategist, uses the butterfly as a metaphor of survival and transformation through life cycles.
“Davis stated that people are tired, defeated, frustrated, hurting and disappointed with life”, due to their struggle to survive. Davis advises that their viewpoint be changed because their latter can be greater than their former. Davis, who has been married over 27 year’s stated that 23 of those years have been good.

Davis’ eBook and CDs offers his readers and listeners – a rich source of useful advice in helping them cope with their struggles as he teaches them ‘strategies’ for making their journey more successful.
