I’m Dan Heiland, AKA “Dan the Budget Man!” 

Thanks for visiting my About page!  

When I want to learn something, I go to people who have experience that will help me grow in that subect.  Here are 

For over 30 years I held a number of accounting leadership positions in multi-company organizations.  In those positions, my title changed, but I always was responsible for preparing the annual budgets for the companies in the organizations.  I was preparing the budgets for between 20 and 35 companies each year, depending upon how many companies we had at the time, as well as working with the managers  on their budget issues and challenges.  Those issues could range from learning how a budget works to doing a complete rebudget to address a minor budget change or a full blown operating model change.

The principal owners were entrepreneurial thinkers who were leaders in their fields and the organizations.  They created an environment where they were not the only entrepreneur in the company, everyone was expected to function and think that way.  That allowed os to be able to react quickly to what was happening.  They ran flat organizations where there were not a lot of managers between the front line workers and the owners.  Being in this type of environment was great experience and programmed me to think entrepreurnally. 

I applied this thinking to my other areas of responsiblity and it helped me greatly.  I was the primary support person for budget, accounting and computer training, including Excel, and I was tasked with providing comprehensive, step by step instruction and traininig.  Now I have taken that training and experience and am sharing those skills and customer driven focus with you on
