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!!"

- Doula

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!

Bobbi Jo

“I've taken helpful business trainings before and I appreciated that this one was laser-focused on getting me results. His content is engaging, informative, and honest. I appreciate that Dan is both acquainted with the birth world and an expert in accounting. I want my business to be sustainable, and with Dan's class,  I'm on my way!"
