In 2000, I was desperate for some financial guidance. My wife, Jessie, was a teacher and I owned my own small business. Between the two of us, we had plenty of income but nothing to show for it other than bills. I picked up Dave Ramsey’s “The Total Money Make Over” and began to read. After throwing the book across the room 25 times, three days later my wife and I began our journey to financial freedom. During this time I developed a love for all things associated with finance and investing. I started teaching Financial Peace University to help others claim the financial freedom and peace that I began to embrace. In December of 2015, after building our dream home, I was injured and occupationally disabled to continue in my line of work and forced to close my business down. A few months later my third son, Creed, arrived with significant complications. It was a season of life where the storm rocked me and my family physically, spiritually, and mentally. Thankfully, because of financial planning, we were able to weather that storm and have emerged with a renewed sense of importance in being prepared.My life is now dedicated to helping others plan for a peaceful financial future, despite what life may throw their way. By working together with SmartPro Financial and Cambridge Investment Research, I can help you with any investment or planning need.
