Why I Became a Financial Advisor
I remember watching my father scour the financial pages for winning stocks to invest in. While he had some success, I knew he was just guessing. There had to be a better way. So, I saved enough to pay for my first year of college and decided to major in finance.
When I signed up for a 401(k) at my first job, I was surprised to find that no one there could help me choose the right investments that would help me retire. I became a financial advisor so I could help others find their better way.
Planning, saving and investing: When all three work together, the result is powerful.
