Dan grew up in rural Ohio where he raised horses for show and rabbits to sell – his first business venture. At age 13, he moved to South Florida and attended the Prep School of Boca Raton likely making him the only Redneck Preppy you’ll ever meet. At the same age, Dan started a lawn service that grew into a staff of 15 with a quarter-million dollars in annual sales by the time he was 22-years old. After selling that business, he went on to start a tree trimming company in Texas, and then one in Orlando which he sold to become a mortgage broker.
His success as a serial entrepreneur has allowed Dan to spend time developing relationships while motivating and entertaining people in the networking community. Dan contributes his time and talents to local business organizations like the Chamber of Commerce in Casselberry, Sanford, South Seminole (Regional), and East Orlando. Currently, Dan is an Ambassador for the Main Street Chamber in Sanford. Dan also supports many different charitable causes in our community as well as in Haiti – he cannot say no if asked to donate free services for fundraisers. Dan’s passion is to serve people by motivating the creation of goals and teaching techniques that will allow for their achievement. A real inspiration to entrepreneurs, Dan has been a featured speaker at The Coffee Club, The Legacy Club, and the Neighborhood Service Network (for Premier Properties). Other business groups; particularly Realtors, Property Managers, and Networking organizations (like BNI) regularly request Dan to present.
A resident of Seminole County since the early 90’s, Dan is a family man with a personal life that has been filled with raising 3 children on his own as a single father. Dan spends quality time with his adult children and is now the proud grandpa of granddaughter Aaliyah.
