What influenced your decision to join Advance Capital?
Many wealth management firms have earned their keep by pushing high-cost products to their clients to make the biggest paycheck. I decided to join Advance Capital Management because of its client-advocate culture and attitude. As a fiduciary, we always put the client’s best interest first and hold ourselves to a higher ethical standard.
How would you describe Advance Capital’s culture?
Our culture is focused on client goals rather than sales goals. Instead of working to accumulate commissions from our clients, we work to build relationships with and assets for our clients. I think our culture makes us more successful as a company, as it allows us to provide honest, objective advice – even when that advice can be difficult to hear, such as it is better for you to work a little longer.
What do you think is important about giving back to your community – both at the firm and for you personally?
Having served with a variety of non-profit organizations, I understand how fortunate most of us are and truly empathize with those who endure much harder circumstances. I believe it is incumbent on all individuals to give back to their communities, whether it is through monetary donations or volunteer work. This is why I helped develop Advance Capital’s philanthropic program, which seeks to partner with local non-profits that are making a difference in our community by providing grants and volunteers to each organization.
What is your favorite piece of advice?
Always be sincere! Nothing is more important than giving honest, thoughtful and truthful advice and guidance to the individuals, families and businesses I serve. Earning and keeping their trust is my priority.
