Dan spent a good share of his early childhood on his grandfather's dairy farm in southern Harper County. The work ethic developed during those early years has been with him his entire life. 
 
After college Dan worked for Geo. A. Hormel and Company as a production manager. However, he longed for his own business. 
 
In 1991, he and his father started their first business. From that time on Dan knew that owning his own business and growing in business is where he wanted to be.

 
In 1995, Dan started his career in the insurance business and has been working with other small businesses ever since.
 
In 1985, Dan married his college sweetheart Diane and they have two beautiful daughters Hannah and Hayley.
