Daniel Henderson

Houston, TX

A slightly-seasoned, serial entrepreneur who is passionate about people, purpose, and giving back.

Daniel started his first company at 19, and since then has bought and sold, or started and sold a total of nine companies, including, and most recently DOYLES, an Inc. 5000 recipient in 2008/09.

Daniel has nothing to hide. Determined to do the right thing, he makes no apologies for his approach. His direct, non-conforming style is certainly uncommon, but most of all, his disarming transparency is what makes him one of a kind.

Daniel Henderson is a serial entrepreneur who became the first in his family to break the cycle of drug and alcohol addiction.

At 17, Henderson graduated high school, and at 19 dropped out of college to start his first business. Since then, Henderson was an early pioneer of the Internet, played professional baseball, and started and/or bought at least a dozen companies, many of which he sold, including DOYLES. Over the past fifteen years, Henderson has led companies with combined revenues of more than $150m, made and lost millions personally, and narrowly avoided filing bankruptcy twice.

Through all the professional successes and failures, Henderson has experienced similar ups and downs in his personal life. As he struggled to find his true identity, self-worth issues plagued him, which were primarily the result of past deficiencies. These challenges led to divorce, depression, and self-destructive behavior.

Henderson’s unique style and delivery is a direct result of his personal and professional life experiences. He is passionate about telling his own story, as he feels that doing so is his ultimate giving back opportunity. Recently, he launched Acceptance.org, a creative grassroots movement formed to promote acceptance.

Daniel currently resides in Houston with his wife Ashley. Daniel has joint-custody of his two children, Kyson and Sariah.
