Dan is on a mission to inform as many people who are interested in knowing about how to improve their health, increase their wealth, and create greater peace of mind. To do this I currently write three blogs and have a subscription readership of some 90,000 plus about 500 readers each day that visit the following blogs with some 330 posts (chapters if you are reading a book)…
I currently live in Orlando, Florida, some 25 miles north of the Disney World, Universal Studios, Sea World and several other major tourist venues. Orlando is a very lovely town with great weather and short drive time access to both the east and west coasts of Florida. I very much enjoy 2-3 day trips to Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, Ft. Myers , St. Augustine, Jacksonville, Pensacola and other key city areas as each area has unique benefits and sights. This is a great area to live in as it offers a lifestyle with virtually everything, indoors, outdoors, sports, culture, community, education, religious activities, fishing, cruising, spending the day at the beach…just a lot of activities that allow you to enjoy your life.
Even with the wide range of community involvement, entertainment and pleasure available, I have a great deal of time to pursue my personal business options. You may wonder why I have such a passion for financial achievements. Essentially I am a teacher. My father was a school principal and my mother always the school secretary. My career occurred in four major segments, Engineering, Marketing and Computers with General Electric, Sales and Marketing of Computer Aided Design Systems with (4) Silicon Valley type start-up companies, a Comprehensive Financial Advisor with American Express and Ameriprise Financial, and since selling my Financial Planning Practice, I am an entrepreneur and currently building an International Network of Distributors to improve health, wealth and peace of mind in as many people as possible. This page is essentially a geo-resume that gives you a few details and facts…as you would give to any employer…however there is no way to understand my emotions, drive or passions from the information below….this is for history and credibility purposes only…thank you for understanding… and now for more of “About Dan”… The overview… in addition to living in Orlando Florida twice, I also lived in…
