Day to Day

Great days include meeting people and sitting down with them, knee-to-knee, and showing them how to lower taxes, reduce and eliminate debt, and ensure their money is helping them to reach their goals and dreams. The financial literacy in the US is way too low and I am on a crusade to help spenders become savers. Those who wish to join me in my cause are welcome to lend themselves in the service of others, while improving their own finances at the same time.

Skills & Qualities Beyond School

All that is really necessary is to be direct, understanding, and forthright with people, and instill a sense of urgency for those who need a course correction in their retirement plans, and to initiate the process with the right concepts and strategies to help get them there.

The company I represent is unique in that the already-working person can use this position as a springboard to add an additional revenue stream until they can replace their incomes outright. What matters is one's level of desire, ambition, motivation, and passion.
