In his free time, Dan likes to run, bike, cross-country ski, and attend bluegrass music festivals.


"Dan Sheeks got this feedback from one of his high school students: "I just want someone to tell me what to do and keep it simple. What exactly should I do over the next couple of years, and when should I do it?" Dan's response is the wonderful book First To A Million. I was blown away by the 'FI Freak Checklist, ' which is a nearly guaranteed path to success for every person reading this book."

--Brad Barrett, Co-host and co-founder of the ChooseFI Podcast

"Well organized into easy-to-read and reference chapters, the book simplifies a lot of what even adults may find challenging to understand in the world of personal finance... Although this book is geared toward teens, adults of all ages will surely find some truly valuable information in it that they can apply to their daily lives."

--Kristi Elizabeth, Manhattan Book Review

"Money isn't taught in schools, and certainly not how to get financial independence at an early age. I found the book to be a great read for adults, too. It goes beyond the boring stuff of budgeting and digs into what makes you happy and how to think differently about money."

--Scott Alan Turner, Rock Star Financial Planning
