Van Gerard's "the Dichoso Group of Companies" (which includes his CPA, real estate, and financial services companies) has served a wide variety of prominent individuals and international corporations, including Hollywood screen writers, producers, and entertainers ranging from the beautiful girls of "Playboy" to TV shows and films such as "CSI", "X Files", "7th Heaven", "NYPD Blue", "The Godfather", "Castle", "Damages", and many more.

Target Audience and Distribution
Today, almost every major broadcaster around the world is operating an internet-television platform. For instance, British Broadcasting Company (BBC) introduced the BBC " iPlayer" in June 2008 as an extension to its "RadioPlayer". Channel 4 launched 4oD ("4 on Demand") in November 2006 allowing users to watch recently shown content. Most internet-television services allow users to view content free of charge while others charge a fee. With FanTV, viewing its variety shows is free and accessible by anyone - anytime and anywhere.
Show Content, Structure and Interview-Style
The show revolves around subliminal images and cues of success, refined living and elegance, while educating the viewer the pathways of running a successful business. Scenes and back drops of big homes, active businesses, designer clothing, luxury cars, the Hollywood nightlife, and upscale California lifestyles serve as inspirational subliminal cues while providing pointers on how to conceptualize a business, reduce taxes, and comply with various accounting and tax laws are presented. Guests are interviewed about their true emotions regarding their failures, rejections, anger, anxieties, and happiness in running their business or career. Hence, how the show's name was coined: "Living for Success".
Van Dichoso's interview-style is "fact-to-fact", "heart-to-heart", and educational, but yet lively, entertaining, and inspirational. Through these cues of a successful lifestyle, viewers can enjoy, laugh, learn and yearn: "I want to be like him/her. I'll follow his/her footsteps."
