Daniel J. O'Brien
I am very fortunate as a Financial Advisor to be able to share my knowledge and expertise. That is the root
of my career. Studying, understanding, and navigating the financial markets has been my passion for over
40 years. Sharing that insight has allowed me to connect with so many wonderful people. It has been very
rewarding partnering together with them and helping them navigate their financial journey.
Minnesota born and raised; I grew up in a loving Irish family with five siblings. My father, as a successful
self-made businessman, instilled in us a strong work ethic. He encouraged us to use our common sense. The
smartest thing I ever did was marrying my loving wife of 42 years. Family means everything to us! Together
we were blessed with two sons, one daughter, and four beautiful grandchildren. We have been very involved
with our children and the community of Eagan very many years. We enjoy spending our time volunteering and
supporting our youth through coaching baseball and pioneering children’s fitness—myself as a long-standing
baseball coach and my wife as a pioneering children’s fitness specialist.
My many interests and hobbies include golf, fishing, and road trips. I also have been an artist throughout my
life, painting images on a canvas. I enjoy studying history, including family genealogies, ancient monoliths,
collecting nostalgic items that fascinate me, and preserving history.
At the young age of 22, I earned my Series 7 securities license and started my financial career. I have
experienced many ups and downs in the stock market navigating clients through turbulent times and strong bull
markets. Tragedy struck our family 16 years ago with the heartbreaking loss was life-changing; it taught me to
be mindful of living every day to the fullest. I am also very empathetic to what others may be going through in
their lives. I help plan the future with the understanding that life is fluid. I try to live by this saying “Yesterday is
history, Tomorrow is a mystery, Today is a gift…that’s why we call it the present”.
