What People Are Saying:
“Dan's business advice over the last year has helped me broaden my thinking-- recognizing partnership opportunities, turning a product into a product line, and expanding my marketing reach. He badgers me about my engineer's tendency to focus on technical problems to the detriment of the business, but without being confrontational or irritating. I appreciate his efforts to help me grow from engineer to entrepreneur.”
- Brandon Stafford, Rascal Micro: small computers for art and science
“As a small independent business owner, navigating the road to profitability can be extremely difficult. I'm a woman running a jewelry teaching and tool design company; we are few and far between. Dan's gentle and sage advice is like a good rudder in precarious waters. He offers a range of ideas and possible scenarios to choose, discussing with you the right fit for your business. This experience is much different than anyone I have listened to before. He is gentle, understanding and most of all, Dan understands the artistic mind. Something must be right because for the first time, my business is in the black.”
