Expertise at YOUR service:

An experienced speaker:  Dan offers nationally recognized expertise that can help attendees solve & head-off financial problems for themselves and clients.  He can train your advisors on those ‘Secrets of Successful Financial Planning’ about which even very experienced planners are unaware or do not know how to implement.  That deficit costs your firm relationships & revenues!

Skyhorse Publishing of NY sought out Dan (not the other way around) to author its consumer-oriented book Secrets of Successful Financial Planning (SSFP). Authoring SSFP, along with Skyhorse’s encouragement, prompted Dan to retire and offer speaking and training engagements nationwide.

Providing copies of SSFP and having Dan speak at Client Appreciation events & seminars will make your reps far more effective. That’s because Dan and  SSFP function as zero-bias, third-party endorsements of your representatives’ proper recommendations!

Charlotte Magazine selected Dan as a ‘2009 Five-star Wealth Manager.’  Dan was a panelist and guest speaker at the Charlotte Chamber of Commerce’s 2007 ‘Business Disposition Workshop.’  Anheuser-Busch, Norfolk Naval Shipyard, Canon USA, and more have sponsored his seminars.  Dan’s financial articles have appeared in The Daily Press, Financial Planning, and The Virginia Gazette.  Articles by and about Dan have been published in the Charlotte Business Journal and Charlotte Ventures.  Dan was honored in 2002 by the International Association of Business Brokers for technical expertise as a Certified Business Intermediary. His fiction and narrative nonfiction have been published by Skyhorse Publishing, Superversive Press, Millhaven Press, Creative Loafing, NFAA Archery, and AncientProphecies Press.  Dan now offers speaking/training services and was recently (June 2018) accepted and registered as an “expert witness” with The Expert Institute, New York.
