The top priority in my life is my relationship with the LORD. Psalm 37:5 says, "Commit everything you do to the LORD. Trust Him and He will help you." Colossians 3:23,24 states, "Work hard and cheerfully at whatever you do, as though you were working for the LORD rather than for people. The Master you are serving is Christ."
I've found, by committing my life to the LORD, and trying to live according to His will, I am able to handle life's ups and downs, and remain thankful for His incredible blessings. Which brings me to the second priority in my life, my family.
I've been blessed with an incredible wife, Monica, and four beautiful children, Hope, Kyle, Kayla, and Haley. Through hard work and leading a God-centered life, I hope to provide for my family and set a good example in doing so.
My third priority is my work. Ecclesiastes 5:19 says, "To enjoy your work and accept your lot in life—that is indeed a gift from God." I enjoy helping my clients define, develop, and implement a strategy to pursue their personal financial goals. Whether that's saving to enjoy retirement, sending a child to college, or creating an estate to pass on to loved ones, I take the time to listen to my clients' goals and help keep them focused on their long-term plans.
I've built my business on helping individuals, as opposed to large corporations and institutions. I appreciate the personal relationships I've developed with my clients and plan to continue serving the individual. That is where I receive the most satisfaction.
Since each client is different, I like to meet face to face, before we open an account. This allows us to get to know each other and develop a personal investment plan that you can feel comfortable with. I am a strong believer in diversification through quality investments and focus on long-term wealth accumulation, as opposed to short-term trading and market timing.
My strong points have always been planning, organization, and finances. I enjoy working with people to help establish individualized goals and then implementing a program to get there. Romans 12:5,6,11 reads, "We are all part of His one body and each of us has different work to do. God has given each of us the ability to do certain things well. Never be lazy in your work, but serve the LORD enthusiastically."
I am thankful that God has led me in a direction where I can use the abilities He has blessed me with, to help my clients, and, in doing so, support my family and lead a fulfilling life.
