Dayton entrepreneur highlighted for hard work, perseverance in the face of adversity
DAYTON, Wyo. — Check out this article from SFGate about a small businessman in Wyoming.
There’s no arguing the demanding nature of Dan Bockman’s job.
He often finds himself working long hours, both in freezing temperatures in the winter or under the scorching hot sun in the summer. When he’s not working with his hands, he spends his time buried in paperwork and trying to find his next client.
And yet, he counts his blessings every day.
Bockman is the owner of Bockman Group, LLC., a Dayton-based business focused primarily on fencing for local residents, and it’s a job he wouldn’t trade for anything. But in order to achieve the American dream of owning his own business, he had to endure the harsh realities of American capitalism.
Several years ago, he found himself on the wrong end of the boom and bust cycle of the energy industry. Out of a job, he took a leap of faith.
And it turned out to be the best decision of his life.
