Thrive Orchard is an extension into the world of who and what I am. I’m part entertainer, poet, marketing guy, content creator, dad and husband. As a passion, I’ve always been fascinated by what makes some people go after their dreams and others not. As a child I was always very curious about people that had their own businesses. Not because I thought they were better but because it looked to me like they chose something. It made sense to me that people should do something they want to do. My dad drove a forklift for Sears for 35 years and told me weekly – “Danny, don’t do something just for the money because you’re afraid, because that’s what I did”.  As I evolved and had a lot of life and business experience I developed a deep understanding of how to help people grow their own business. As a lifelong entrepreneur I’ve started numerous businesses and been self employed mostly since junior high and certainly through college.

What has continually “come up” for me is that I like to help people launch and grow businesses. It wakes me up and keeps me going. I also like to write about life’s ups and downs. It all chose me ironically… What do you like to do?
