Dan Steenerson is the President and CEO of Disability Insurance Services. He passionately believes that every American should have paycheck protection, and he strives to achieve that ideal every day by finding innovative ways to help insurance agents sell more disability insurance.
Ironically, Dan never intended to land in the insurance business. He grew up in rural Minnesota and attended a military academy. In his senior year of high school, he completed a vocational test which indicated that his #1 career choice should be working as an insurance agent. He didn’t believe it. However, a few short years later, he was recruited by The Paul Revere Life Insurance Company. During his first year, he established himself as one of the company’s top producers by winning the national brokerage Rookie of the Year award. And that was just the beginning. Over the next 17 years, Dan’s success and responsibility levels grew, thanks to his self-discipline, focus and drive – traits he learned early on at the military academy.
In 1997, Dan established Disability Insurance Services. He had noticed that it was increasingly difficult for one carrier to meet a variety of income protection needs. So, his goal was to offer DI brokers a one-stop income protection resource, featuring products from all the nation’s leading carriers. Today, DIS is the fastest growing and most recognized force for premier income protection products.
Dan attributes his company’s success to a five-part formula: working with relentless urgency; respecting and appreciating team members; hiring the best talent; continually reinventing; and requiring impeccable attention to detail. “I surround myself with smart people and never take shortcuts,” he says. “There will always be setbacks, but perseverance, dedication and drive eventually yield success.”
Those who know Dan say that he accomplishes more in one day than most people achieve in a week with super-contagious energy and ideas. Having realized tremendous business achievement, Dan also now imparts his success, wisdom, principles and philosophies through his soon to be launched “Science of Visioneering” success approach. Dan’s approach is focused on helping entrepreneurs and others who aspire to business greatness and seek to become “Visioneers” in their own respective fields.
When Dan isn’t working, he enjoys sailing the high seas of the Pacific Ocean and spending time with his family.
