I enjoy seeing the process from start to finish. With financial guidance, you can truly see the difference it makes for clients’ everyday lives and the confidence they gain from it.

Preparation and correspondence. Things will always happen that are out of our control where meetings need to be canceled – sometimes meetings are pushed out due to everyone’s busy schedules and availability.

Everything is an investment. Always remember to stay focused on your goals and think long-term.

What’s the most influential book you’ve read?
The most influential book I’ve read is George Orwell’s 1984. It’s a reminder on how important individualism is, and to never become a prisoner to fear for there is enough power within ourselves to defeat the obstacles we face.
