What is A Recovering Accountant?
Hey! I'm Dan, and I'm a Recovering Accountant. While I'm now an entrepreneur, Virtual CFO, startup mentor and teacher, I still cant seem to shake my beginnings and training as a Certified Public Accountant.
From my time at Michigan, I had realized I'm good at accounting, and always seemed to have a knack for understanding the 'language of business'. Whether I was tutoring hundreds of hours of Mangerial and Financial accounting, teaching Accounting 271 (to non-business students) or starting my career at Big-4 accounting, I've always had a knack at understanding the Quantitative Sides of business.
The problem is that I feel like these topics are taught poorly and most entrepreneurs I meet have either NEVER taken a class, or couldn't apply how to make "how many widgets these factories make" to apply to their businesses.
These concepts dont have to be hard, and I've designed Startup Economics 101 to be: "Everything I wish entrepreneurs knew before I worked with them" and to be accessible to all. Recently Ive taught to high schools, PHD engineers, Startup Accelerators and more, and have realized how universal this content is.
