Investment Philosophy/Specialty/Niche

My favorite quote is: “Know Where You Stand and Stand There.” from Father Daniel Berrigan. I follow this idea in both my personal life and business. I don’t have an appetite for anything that isn’t authentic. I don’t have the time or energy for things that don’t matter.

Here is what else you could expect from me:

  • I will stay committed to providing you guidance in both good times and bad.
  • I will tell you the truth, even if you really don’t want to hear it.
  • I will show you how to build a powerful financial blueprint and work closely with you on a regular basis to help keep you on track.
