Meet Nikki and Kermit Cannon of WFG

Today we’d like to introduce you to Nikki and Kermit Cannon.

Nichole was born in Kansas City, Mo, but raised in Hawaii. She moved to Los Angeles to attend Los Angeles High School and then Graduated from USC. She has worked in the Financial Services Industry with Transamerica for over 15 years. She currently holds an MBA as well as 6 professional licenses in the Insurance and Investment Industry which puts her in the Top 2% of not only her company, but of Female African-American Advisors in the Country.

She is very passionate about providing financial services for the underserved market in this industry. The company’s motto is “No Family Left Behind” and she considers her business of educating families as a “Grass-Roots” Crusade to Correct an Injustice in the Financial Services Industry. She prides herself and her team on being able to bring the same products, services, knowledge and information that the top 2% of Wealthy families have received for years to the masses and specifically to the minority community. The Primary goal is to level the playing field when it comes to Wealth Inequality in this Country!

She is married to her husband Kermit for 15 years and they have 2 boys. They love to travel and have been to over 15 countries together around the world.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
I have always been an entrepreneur at heart. I love to control my time and my income. The business opportunity gives me a chance to plan my day, week and life around my family. My income in not completely dependent on my personal efforts. There are several passive, residual income streams within this business model. And I love the ability to teach and train other associates to be equally successful if not more successful than myself.

That creates a true win-win situation for everyone. I love seeing people get out of debt and save for retirement and college and accomplish their goals. It’s hard to see people get to retirement age and not have enough. They either have to keep working or downsize their lifestyle. I always say “People don’t plan to fail, they fail to plan!” I wish they could have sat with me earlier!

Please tell us about WFG.
What sets us apart in the financial services industry is that our motto is “No Family Left Behind” so we can prepare a plan for our clients on a complimentary basis and then make recommendations to potentially lower the cost on some things they are paying on, potentially decrease risk and volatility and potentially even help to decrease taxes.

If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
If I had to start over, I would have utilized the mentorship that’s available much more. Most business owners don’t have any mentorship to call on when they direction or help or just to bounce ideas. We’re fortunate to have many people who will give up their time to help us be successful.
