Dan Sheeks

Dan Sheeks is a high school Business/Marketing teacher, real estate investor, and personal finance advocate in Denver, Colo. In his 16-plus years of teaching high school, he has taught a variety of business subjects including financial literacy, entrepreneurship, and marketing.

Experience
Dan’s passions include working with teenagers, advocating for personal finance education, investing in real estate, and promoting the FIRE movement. 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 volunteers in the MoneyWi$er initiative out of the Colorado Attorney General’s Office with a few other hand-picked experts from around the state. The program strives to advance financial literacy in Colorado secondary education. 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.

Launched in late 2019, SheeksFreaks is a blog and Instagram page that are dedicated to helping young people learn money management skills, start investing in real estate, and pursue financial independence. The SheeksFreaks blog aims to help teens 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 14 units in the Denver metro area, Colorado Springs, and Detroit.
