Learn critical strategies for increasing your campaign efficiency and closing your campaign out right with Haven Strategies’ Dan Webb.
The ultimate goal of this podcast is to inspire and inform individuals who want to make a difference. The variety of backgrounds of the folks we hear from every week really drives home the fact that it doesn’t matter where you come from or what you’re born with. You can make a difference. Work ethic, tenacity and love-of-service are common denominators. Plus, we love people who focus on campaign efficiency and doing the most with what they’ve got.
Our guest this week has those traits in spades.
Dan has worked on political campaigns since 2007. After climbing his way through the ranks from a grassroots volunteer to campaign manager of multiple state and federal races, he discovered he wanted to broaden his ability to to help others find solutions to the complex challenges they face, which led to him starting Haven Strategies, a strategic consulting firm.
He’s worked on everything from Presidential to county-level races and always believes in running like you’re 10 points behind. You can run scared or unopposed, so if you’re opposed, run like you’ve got the devil chasing you!
Like myself, Dan is a student of Zig Ziglar, Dale Carnegie and Sun Tzu. He leverages the lessons these men have shared throughout his life but believes they make a big difference on the campaign trail.
Dan lives with his wife Rita and three daughters in Roanoke, Virginia. They are expecting baby number four in December.
