We Provide Clear Direction For Your Business
Lacking Clarity in Your Business Can Be So Frustrating!
If you are like most business owners you know your business can be successful, and make money. You are committed to expanding the business, and creating work-life balance. You strive to grow, get better, and reach your ultimate potential as an owner and an executive. Most importantly you want your business to run more efficiently and grow in value.
But something keeps getting in the way: The money is coming in but it seems as if it is working against you rather than for you. The more you are able to grow as a company the less money it feels like you are making. Maybe you are having an issue similar to this client:
We’re a high growth company. We’ve grown an average of at least 30% a year for the past ten years. Managing a high growth company has its challenges, and one of those challenges is financial. Before I started working with Dan, I felt like I was driving a car down the road at breakneck speed, and I couldn’t see out my windshield, but didn’t want to take my foot off the gas pedal.
Does This Sound Like You?
- Do you feel like the business is growing faster than you can learn to manage it?
- Do you ever fear that important things are falling through the cracks?
- Do you stay up late at night wondering if you are growing too fast, or possibly you are worried your growth isn’t fast enough?
If so, you’re not alone. All of us have felt this way.

Our Clients Say It Best!
Dan has been a T@W member for over 5 years. He has helped a number of our members break-through and grow revenue, profit and increase the value of their businesses. He has a good reputation of being consistent, transparent and providing sound business advice. I’ve recommended Dan to a number of our members and will continue to do so.
Matt Peelen Founder - Truth at Work, Indianapolis
Prior to working with Dan, we made all of our decisions based on gut instinct or "by the seat of our pants". That worked OK for a while; but as our revenue, employees and territories expanded, the "seat of the pants" method of management stopped working. Since Dan has been working with us, we are much more focused, make much better decisions, have stronger borrowing ability, communicate better and can see the future much more clearly. As a team, we have less stress, more opportunities and an awesome future ahead of us.
Nick Stanley CEO Water Solutions Unlimited Franklin Indiana
“I attended one of Dan's seminars about guiding and managing business performance. I agreed with what he was saying, we were just not doing most of it, but we needed to be. Dan has helped me grow my management team, helped us clearly define our direction, evaluate performance and define standards. He meets with our department leaders every month to discuss last month’s performance, changing trends and how the future looks. Dan has helped us become a much better and stronger company.”
Chris Straw CEO Team Quality Services Auburn Indiana
“I met Dan at a Truth at Work seminar. Dan made the finance leg of our business easy to understand. We hired him to help us stay focused, give us objective outside analysis, challenge our thinking and kick us in the butt when we needed it. The benefit: revenue - dramatic growth, cash flow - dramatic growth, bankers - they love us, we now have the flexibility to do about anything we want to and we are.”
Rob Daly CEO Qualtronics Columbus Indiana
Man of Integrity
“I believe in the capabilities and integrity of Dan Lacy. He was responsible for the growth, acquisitions, planning, and general financial stability of all my businesses. He was an asset to my organization.”
Bill Gaither Serial Entrepreneur, Businessman, Singer, Song Writer, Multiple Grammy Award Winner, Alexandria Indiana
Dan Is Acknowledged In The Industry As An Expert
“I work with Dan Lacy on a regular basis and find that he is uniquely gifted in helping company’s focus on and achieve financial performance levels never achieved before. As an accounting professional, he is an asset to the financial community.”
Richard Peck Jr. CPA, Stewart Peck, Hueston and Thomas CPA’s, Anderson Indiana
Bankers Love Dan Lacy
“Over the last seven years I’ve seen him go in with many companies and make a very dramatic, positive effect on those operations. First of all, I think Dan’s banking background affords him the opportunity of communicating with fellow bankers or other bankers in a way that is rapidly and easily understood as it relates to one of his clients. Secondly, he understands what the bank is looking for. Consequently, the financial proforma’s he puts together addresses those concerns and needs, consequently saving a lot of time for all.
Jim Freeman SVP & Commercial Banker, Amerianna Bank, Plainfield Indiana
“In six years we took a fledgling company from $2.5M to $31M, profit increased over $1M and we sold it for $15M. From the start, Dan Lacy was a key member of the executive committee that took over control of the business. He was responsible for all cash management, all planning, and all financing. He played a key role in the growth, profitability, and success of the company. He provided the guidance that gave us the financial stability we needed to grow the company on average 43% per year for 7 straight years.”
Stan Moser CEO at Star Song Communications, Inc., Nashville Tennessee (sold to EMI)
DAN LACY IS REALLY 3 PEOPLE IN ONE
“Our banking and borrowing relationships continue to improve. Dan is not a CPA, banker, or accountant, but a combination of all three. That has enhanced our borrowing and communication abilities with our lenders.”
Bill Nagengast COO, Continental Design, Anderson Indiana
Dan came into our business early on. He helped me sleep at night, by giving us early indicators of the financial success of our company. Our company enjoyed crazy growth last year, and Dan helped us navigate it, expressing concern when it was merited. This year, our first quarter has been rocky, but this, too, Dan has helped us through. He has pushed us to make difficult decisions when needed. I trust him implicitly to give us sound advice about the financial health of the company. But more than that, I’ve come to see him as a friend. He’s never in a hurry and is always willing to give advice about any area of our business. He’s quick to offer help and contacts. As a business owner, he gives me financial peace of mind. But we’ve gained much more than that by working with Dan Lacy.
Jason Beutler Owner, Edu-Source Carmel Indiana
We have been working with Dan for over 2 years now and it has completely transformed our business. It is like we have a CFO on board with the company. We meet monthly but we have access to Dan at anytime throughout the month. When we first started working with Dan, we really had no understanding of financial statements such as cash flow predictions, profit margins, balance sheets, etc. He has taught us so much. He challenges us, provides focus and helps us strategize on all issues of the business beyond financials. He provides a level of accountability, stability and an outside point of view. He is helping us plan for the future of the business both financially as well as holistically. He has been a God send to us personally as well as for our company.
Cori Brown Franklin Door and Window, Carmel Indiana
We met Dan at an industry conference. Dan was the guest speaker and his session was on how to grow and improve business performance. We felt our company was at a critical point and needed to implement what we were taught that day. We hired Dan. Fast forward a few years: Our growth has vastly exceeded what I expected, we have more flexibility and opportunity than ever and the last three years has been the best years ever for our company. Dan has played a big part in helping us get there. Thanks Dan
Troy Lanz CEO, Lanz HVAC & Plumbing, Inc. Champaign Illinois
One of my daily prayers is "Lord, show me what I cannot see and give me the wisdom to deal with it". During a time of extreme fluctuations in the company, this prayer became and more important to me. As I was learning to address a multitude of issues and ensure success within the company and the culture my prayer was answered. I began to "see what I could not see" and realized I was unfit to answer some of the questions however, Dan Lacy was fit to answer the questions. I had known Dan for several years and KNEW he was the perfect solution and partner to me; helping me see what I cannot and providing the wisdom to create a much greater success for the company. After engaging Dan, I further came to understand that not only could he help me through a fluctuating time of difficulty but he is essential to helping me in the good times too. Dan has been extremely helpful and a guiding light for me in many ways and I strong endorse Dan to anyone who might be praying a similar prayer or having a similar need.
Jake Stamper Eclipse Marketing & Advertising, Inc. Greenwood Indiana
The construction industry has been very bumpy these last few years and Dan has helped keep us on track. He meets monthly with the management team, keeping us focused on what is important. He is a deep well of resources and ideas; but he also holds us accountable for our actions. We are having one of the best years ever in the company, thanks in part to Dan's involvement.
Bruce Agan US Automatic Fire & Security, Carmel Indiana
“We’re a high growth company. We’ve grown an average of at least 30% a year for the past ten years. Managing a high growth company has its challenges, and one of those challenges is financial. Before I started working with Dan, I felt like I was driving a car down the road at breakneck speed, and I couldn’t see out my windshield, but didn’t want to take my foot off the gas pedal. Working with Dan has allowed me to see down the road. I have a map, an idea of where I’m going, and whether or not I’m going to get there.”
Judy Nagengast CEO at Continental Design & Engineering Company, Inc., Anderson Indiana
Dan gave a presentation at a Truth at Work meeting and it resonated with me. We have an excellent business, great industry, and everything was running very well but I needed someone to bounce ideas off of, challenge me, help me think outside my comfort level and make my business better. We have been in business for 30 years and have been comfortable with our position in the market and profitability. Dan challenged me to grow our business through acquisitions and he helped me broker a deal that increased our business by 40%. Three years ago I would have never believed we would be where we are today. Dan has been an excellent investment. I highly recommend Dan and his team. They are very professional and carry a wealth of knowledge in business, financials and will challenge you to do better.
