Dan Sheeks

Dan Sheeks is a high school Business/Marketing teacher, author, real estate investor, and personal finance advocate in Denver, Colorado. He is the newest BiggerPockets author, with his recent book and workbook, First to a Million: A Teenager’s Guide to Achieving Early Financial Freedom. The book introduces teenagers to the strategies, concepts, and mindset needed to achieve early financial freedom. Dan was a guest on episode 255 of the Bigger Pockets Money Podcast.

Experience

Dan’s passions include working with teenagers, advocating for personal finance education, investing in real estate, and promoting the FIRE movement. In his 19-plus years of teaching high school, he has taught various business subjects, including financial literacy, entrepreneurship, and marketing.

Embedded in his classes is the co-curricular DECA club in which students travel, compete, acquire leadership skills, do community service, and have fun! His students have competed at the national level in entrepreneurship, personal finance, marketing, and hospitality services with much success over the years. Dan has also taken his high school students into local middle and elementary schools, where his students have taught the importance of personal finance to younger children.

Dan launched SheeksFreaks in late 2019, which is an online community dedicated to helping young people learn money management skills, start investing in real estate, and pursue early financial independence. The SheeksFreaks community aims to help those between 15- and 25-years old use specific methods of saving, earning extra income, and investing to set them on a track to purchase real estate investment properties in their early 20s and achieve financial independence at a young age.

Dan and his wife have a variety of real estate investments, including multifamily, single-family, Airbnb, and out-of-state BRRRRs. They currently have 17 units in Colorado and Michigan.
