I didn’t set out to be a financial advisor. My first goal after graduating high school was not to be a farmer since I grew up on a farm and became frustrated with repairing farm equipment. Immediately after high school graduation I studied computer programming and completed the course in 5 months. Then I began college only to find out that I was going to be drafted into the army. In order to avoid that, I entered the Air Force and after completing my commitment finished college with a business degree. It was during college that I developed an interest in managing investments and tax-planning. Then at the age of 33, I became a financial advisor. I realized I loved teaching and guiding my clients as they accumulated assets and built future income.
