Daniel’s Story

About Our Founder

Once upon a time, Daniel had a good job at a good company.

Every day he would wake up, drive to a corporate office, and do a corporate job. Daniel was good at his job, but he was never really satisfied. He was always looking for the next thing, thinking the next opportunity would make him happy.

One day, Daniel unexpectedly lost his job. Because of that, Daniel started doing executive coaching with small business owners and consulting work with startups.

Finding he was good at working with these business owners, Daniel founded Steering Ventures, made some business cards, and started working with more and more clients.

Finally, Daniel realized that he enjoyed consulting work more than he ever enjoyed his corporate job. He realized he could help more people as an independent consultant and coach than he could in another corporate job. So Daniel stopped looking for another corporate job and focused on helping small businesses flourish.

And Daniel and his clients lived happily ever after.
