About Dan Dekker

My name is Dan Dekker, and I am an accountant with my MBA. I've spent a total of 14 years managing accounting for small businesses, and for the past 5 years, I’ve helped my wife run our own small business that now fully supports our family.

Through our own business, I've had the opportunity to work regularly with professionals from the birthing community. These folks amaze me with their skills, compassion and commitment to their clients. But they consistently tell me that they struggle with the financial aspects of their small businesses. Enter the "Birth Pro Guide to Business" class. My goal in teaching this class is to help midwives, doulas, childbirth educators, and lactation consultants gain the knowledge they need to make their businesses profitable, sustainable, and a financial support to your family! 

Here's what current students are saying: 

Dan has created a class that clarifies the “hows and whys” of handling the financial side of operating a business. Implementing the recommended steps has simplified my record keeping, allowing me to spend more time doing what I love while knowing that I have what I will need come tax time!!



I highly recommend Dan's class for birth professionals. I had a meager understanding of business terms and concepts. Dan "takes you by the hand" and teaches the nuts and bolts in a well-prepared and easy-to-understand style. I came away from every class with several practical tools to immediately implement. The administrative side of my business used to seem daunting and I would ignore it until the last possible minute. Now I am confident, have a well working system and my business is profiting!
