Our guests have included Anthony Pompliano (@pompglobal), Hala Taha (@yapwithhala) and Michelle Weinstein (@thepitchqueen). Our goal is to give participants access to invaluable content and insights from these elite entrepreneurs. My partners and I were concerned at the onset of COVID-19 that our clients, business partners and friends needed access to resources and timely information. We felt that the development of a webinar/podcast series showcasing our top contacts could be this vital resource during these tumultuous times.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
The biggest challenge of my career to date was working for large financial institutions that think profit first- clients second. This is/was contrary to my beliefs in what I do for my clients. I spent several years working with a business consultant who similarly worked 3 decades at a large financial institution. He helped me to locate and eventually meet my current business partners. He understood what it means to be a fiduciary- Moreover, the ability to rely upon credentialed partners to provide a holistic financial planning practice.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your business?
We are a team-based private financial institution that serves as an RIA and family office to high net worth individuals along with a highly dedicated corporate services arm. Our firm’s roots date back to 1976 and we leverage these decades of experience and credentials to develop wealth management strategies specifically designed to help our clients bridge the gap between their present and future goals. We have a core of young and experienced advisors that allows us both the perspective of an advisory firm with over 40 years in business combined with a modernized platform for the future. We have a unique understanding of founders and entrepreneurs in the technology space and how to position ourselves as their Family CFO.

Can you talk to us a bit about happiness and what makes you happy?
Getting up everyday knowing I have the love and support from my family and the support of tremendous business partners. Through my podcast, I have been able to connect with amazing founders and entrepreneurs to provide resources to those in need during very difficult times.
