About Our Guest:

Daniel Seong was born in South Korea in 1979 and moved to Burbank, Ca in 1984.  He grew up with two older sisters and a younger brother.  After a week of graduating high school he was on “the bus” to bootcamp.  He served in the Marine Corps with an Honorable Discharge in 2002.  He now lives in Irvine, CA with his beautiful wife Christina of 16 years and has 4 amazing daughters (Nicole, Natalie, Leah & Lauren) & son (Nathan).

Daniel is a firm believer in “the harder you work, the luckier you get”.

Daniel founded Great Park Insurance from his bedroom desk working 2-day jobs, plus a graveyard shift to support his family.  At one point, having only $200 to his name with 4 kids, he decided to plant his flag in the industry and make it happen!  No excuses! 

“Being on welfare and having to send my wife to the grocery store with food stamps made me work harder than I ever could have imagined.” – Daniel Seong

 “I took 7 days off my first 5 years in the business and five of them were for Christmas.” – Daniel Seong

Great Park Insurance is currently licensed in 8 States (Arizona, California, Colorado, New Jersey, Nevada, Oregon, Texas, Washington) and The Team speaks 8 languages (English, Cantonese/Mandarin, Turkish, Spanish, Korean, Romanian, Hindi, Greek).

Daniel is living his dream life by being able to come out to the office every day to inspire, lead and develop his team members.  Recently, he was featured in “The Last Agent Standing Volume 5” as Great Park Insurance has become Yelp’s highest rated insurance agency in the country.

“Consistency will always be greater than talent.” – Daniel Seong

He enjoys creating memories with his loved ones, one-on-one dates with his kids and getting old together with Christina.  All his kids want 4 kids of their own so a simple family dinner will consist of 32 people.  This is Daniel’s ultimate dream.

“What a life I get to live.” – Daniel Seong

About Dan Mulhern

“I’ve been creating visual art as long as I can remember. In elementary school, my teachers used to think that my parents created my art for me. As a child I always wanted to be a pilot and an architect.  Ending up as a commercial designer and brand expert doesn’t come as a surprise I suppose.  It allows me to explore new horizons and do it in such a way that I have to adhere to minute details in order to create a successful outcome. The best part, however, is experiencing my clients’ satisfaction when we’ve created something special that will resonate powerfully in the marketplace. That is what keeps me doing what I do, doing what I love.”
