Dan Boudreau, Author and Business Coach

Welcome to my home online. If you're starting or running a small business, I can help. Please explore my website, share it with other entrepreneurs, and get in touch if you'd like to discuss.


I am dedicated and invested in helping people who dream about starting their own gig, who want to turn a hobby into a business, or who are working full time and chafing to start their own business, and for those who are already in business. I use the term business to describe ventures from tiny to large across many industry sectors, including all small and micro-businesses, start-ups, proprietorships, cottage industries, home-based, single operator, and businesses with or without employees, including corporations and partnerships with fewer than five employees. My views arise from owning businesses, financing entrepreneurs, and serving as a small business advisor, coach, and trainer.

I enjoy working with entrepreneurs who are passionate about their business and committed to doing their best. Most of all, I love to assist others to be their best and to achieve success, whatever they deem success to be.
