WHAT BROUGHT YOU TO FINANCIAL PLANNING?
“During college, I read the book The Millionaire Next Door, and then started religiously reading Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine. I realized that building wealth is not about making a huge income and that many of our nation’s wealthiest individuals drive used cars and live in modest homes.
I have always been a naturally frugal person, with an appreciation for saving over spending. In college, I decided it would be my mission to help others make wiser financial decisions, and thereby increase their joy in life.”
