I am on a committed, dedicated mission to inform as many people who are interested in knowing about how to improve their health, increase their wealth, to create greater peace of mind and to restore our country to the nation our forefathers intended. To do this I currently write two blogs and have a free subscription readership of some 90,000+with some 360 posts (chapters if you are reading a book) available for my readers…these are the (2) Blogs…

Road To Financial Independence

The Conservative

You can also find my activities on FB, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+ and Pinterest.

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, fondly called “The City Beautiful” 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 five major segments, Engineering, Marketing and Sales of Computer Aided Design Systems with General Electric and then (4) Silicon Valley and Route I-93 Boston based 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 am 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 have lived in…

 GE
General Electric Company

Employed with General Electric and General Electric start-up company Applicon, Inc. for 25 years. Wrote a “white paper” in 1965 that suggested a crazy idea to my management…”wouldn’t it be nice to have a small computer on every engineer’s desk?” Three years later this paper got me an assignment with GE’s Aerospace Council which included idea type engineers from around the world. The work of this Council led G.E. to the development of the first Computer Aided Design and Computer Aided Manufacturing Systems by 1972.  Along with a very bright engineer who knew Fortran programming we managed (84) employees operating the first (5) terminal CAD/CAM engineering system in the U.S.. After (3) years GE began a start-up CAD company called Applicon Inc. I traveled the United States from 1975 to 1993 in sales positions including V.P. of Sales for (4) start-up computer aided design companies, Applicon, Inc; Racal-Redac LLC; Cadnetix Inc; and Adra Systems Inc. I marketed computer aided design systems to many major corporations for electrical, mechanical, electronic and semi-conductor design and drafting in the U.S. and visited many of those companies and many major government facilities.
