....drawing upon my life experiences to help you navigate through yours....

My life can be best understood if you will link together three major continents: America……..Africa…….Europe

Life in the Congo


  • Born in Norfolk, Nebraska on a snowy night on Groundhog’s Day, February 2, 1947.
  • Attended college at North Park University in Chicago, Illinois where I met my wife, Joan.
  • Lived out my passion for working with people in coaching, counseling,  and mentoring in Port Huron, Michigan.


  • Learned the importance of building a life on solid foundations in the country of the Congo, in Central Africa. (Click here to learn about my Coaching Heritage in the Congo.)


  • Learned as a young man to “dream the impossible dream” in Brussels, Belgium.  After high school, I saved up enough money to fly to Europe, buy a motor scooter, rent an apartment, get a job in a supermarket and study French at night.  As one wise consultant once said, “I had a lot of sky with little earth”  (meaning lots of dreams for adventure with little finances to support them).  Over the years, I’ve learned the importance of finding a balance of both!
Dan and Joan Lundblad
I have been married to Joan for the past 43 years, and am thankful for a companion and friend who is always ready for a new adventure. We’ve explored the world together, both physically and emotionally, from the top of Pikes Peak to the tropical forest of my boyhood home in the Congo. Joan is a Registered Nurse/Diabetes Educator, helping persons with a chronic disease to live a healthy lifestyle.
