Dan Orfin was born and raised in Metro Detroit. He spent his early years in Sterling Heights and then later moved to Rochester. He grew up with two brothers and a sister. When Dan was growing up, he learned the value of a dollar from his parents. They taught him that nothing is free in life and if you want something, work hard and smart and you can have it. Dan started working as a paperboy when he was 12 years old. Then he worked for a small business owner, at a pizzeria, in Rochester. Once he graduated from High School, he went to Western Michigan University and got a degree in Production Operation MGMT. When Dan graduated from WMU, he took a job with General Motors. He quickly learned that he wanted to own his own business and help his neighbors in the community. Dan got into the insurance business in 1999. He has historically been in the top 1% of Producers Nationwide.
