Dan Seewald Reviews

  • What is your favorite quote? "It ain't what you don't know that gets you in trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so." - Samuel Clemens (aka. Mark Twain)
  • Are there any moments that stand out as having a significant impact on your career? At 18 years old, I was invited to give a talk to 100 high school students. It was unnerving AND exhilarating at the same time. In that moment, I knew what I wanted to be when "I grew up"
  • Outside of your profession do you have any hobbies/interests? I LOVE to spend my "non work" time coaching. While in college, I was a HS wrestling coach and instantly fell in love with mentoring and teaching. I continue to coach and mentor children today
  • Who do you look up to as a mentor and why? I've always been inspired by the writer, Mark Twain. He started as steamboat pilot and had the courage to chase his dream and become a writer. Perhaps one of the greatest writers of all time!
  • Is there anything else we should know about you? My talks are rooted in real experience and insight. Not platitudes. I've walked a mile in your shoes. I know what it takes to think differently.
