I want your problems!

Really I do.  Overcoming obstacles that are holding back your business are my specialty.  

You are a smart person who knows your business inside and out but it is always helpful to have an experienced, second eye on things,
a person that you can trust and one that you know is capable of taking care of the problems you would rather not deal with right now.  

That's what I do, bring 25 years of experience solving problems just like you face day to day.

Dan is one of those immensely multifaceted talents that you just don't run across very often; a brilliant business consultant, an engaging and well-versed speaker and a musical talent that simply defies description. I've hired Dan on several occasions for my businesses and non-profits, utilized his ListRocket services to help build up our brand awareness and client network, had him as a guest speaker for the Inventor's Council of Cincinnati and as a co-presenter and collaborator for my innovation training workshops. Dan is a consummate professional; always personable and knowledgeable about his topics and engaging to his audience. I definitely plan to keep collaborating with him further.

Allen G Zaring III Managing Director The Zaring Family Foundation

My father told me, ‘A big man shows his greatness by how he treats men.’ Dan is very respectful and very intelligent. When we have our discussions, he brings an opinion that is based on fact. He doesn’t prevaricate. He reads; he is a deep thinker.

Dan's ListRocket service has allowed our agency to grow and provide additional offerings to our clients which we weren't capable of doing in the past. He has a can-do attitude and always greets you with a big smile, which goes a long way.

Through the creation of a PowerPoint presentation, Dan transformed complex data and stale information into visual images that were compelling and easy to understand. The award-winning infrastructure project, completed in 2011, was ultimately awarded a $600,000 competitive grant. Without Dan's leadership, the award may not have been granted.

As a Board Member of the Oakley Community Council, Dan helped startup the Oakley Final Friday event (now called Oakley After Hours). The event has become a mainstay for neighborhood residents and visitors, has has become a source of pride for the community.
