Small business owner working with other small business owners, teachers, parents, and individuals to succeed in their financial planning. Business ranges from retirement plans, life insurance, college savings planning, budgeting, and long-term care planning. Have transformed the business to a paperless business by incorporating Docupace, Salesforce, and Money Guide Pro into my practice. My technique with current and potential clients is to teach them about investing and financial planning rather than just promoting products.
