Statement of Purpose:

"After 30 years doing finance in the corporate world, I am now in a place in my life where as opposed to assisting my corporation, I can share my passion with helping specific individuals with one on one personal financial planning. Few things in life bring me greater joy than helping individuals pursue their financial goals. It never ceases to amaze me how much anyone can accomplish, with a well thought out financial plan! This is significantly more rewarding than helping out corporations."
