Hi, I'm Dan

I teach small business men and women like you how to manage naturally, do more right things with less and enjoy doing it. Good people working together on something worth doing, with a little knowledge, can accomplish amazing things.

My job is not to be the smartest guy in the room, but to listen, with humility, and ask questions to help you and your team figure things out for yourselves. I am endlessly curious about how people manage their businesses and am deeply honored when invited to contribute. 


In the age of google, information is freely available, but how about getting and using it effectively? You will gain access to unique time-tested resources, methods and problem solving tools shared by someone who knows how to use them. 


You will learn the principles behind the tools and how to use those principals for any problem. Our method is firmly planted in a holistic management method perfected through many years of practical application.

We have achieved a level of teamwork and enjoyment of work that I don’t believe would ever have been possible without Dan’s help. And we did it by learning, I would have never thought.

Dan is a first-rate pro who takes technical information and turns it into good business and cultural development. Impeccable, I can always count on what he says and what he does.

Clark Wolf

He has expertise I value, and understands the business principles that need to be applied for a successful small business as they seek help from a change agent, and Dan certainly fulfills that role.

He's really down to earth and had really insightful things to say. Made me feel confident, eager, and excited to take on new challenges. Preciate' cha Dan.

Jeremy Hunter

The first person I called was Dan when asked to write a grant application to revitalize small farms with added value by the USDA. Dan helped lead a wide effort which produced a Renaissance in WI's signature industry, providing leadership, knowledge, tireless effort and boundless optimism.
