About Dan Wesley

Daniel (Dan) B. Wesley is an American entrepreneur and executive. He is a subject matter expert in finance and is known for creating web portals to connect people to resources that help them meet their financial goals.

Dan graduated in 2000 with a degree in Nuclear Medicine and found himself in extreme student debt. On his quest to get out from under that debt, he found a new passion—finance. He worked as a Radiation Safety Officer while preparing to launch his first financial portal. Dan left medicine but continued to pursue his dream of helping people by founding CreditLoan.com.


Dan’s most practical and actionable insights are in personal finance and are owed to his hands-on experience of founding CreditLoan. His background is a unique mix of medical science and business, which has helped train him to see things a little differently.

As a nationally syndicated financial columnist, and regular contributor to Forbes Finance and Entrepreneur, Dan's articles have been featured more than 150 times across 70+ publications including the Wall Street Journal, CNN, TIME Magazine, CNBC and New York Times.


Dan is active with the Young Entrepreneur Council (YEC), a non-profit organization started by Scott Gerber in 2010 that provides mentoring and opportunity to emerging entrepreneurs. On behalf of YEC, Dan has written several columns as a thought leader.
