I remember taking a business class when I was 15 years old; on the first day, our teacher demonstrated a simple future value calculation. This was done to show the importance of saving habits, and, ultimately, the power of compounding interest. I remember looking around at my friends in the class to see if they shared my shock and optimism for the future. To my surprise, it seemed as though I was the only one who experienced this epiphany. Later that day, I went home and asked my dad if he would help me open an investment account to start saving for retirement. In the following weeks, I made a conscious choice to convince my friends to do the same. This was my first experience with financial planning, and it has been my passion ever since.
As a member of CCM team, I am able to help clients create and implement a personalized strategy that can have a positive impact on the rest of their lives, just like the one I had in business class all those years ago. The great responsibility that comes with this work brings me tremendous fulfillment.
