Experience Counts

Planning and focus are your greatest assets when it comes to tackling financial challenges and making progress toward your dreams. Here’s an anecdote that illustrates my own track record and philosophy for success:

The experienced porters at Tanzania’s Mt. Kilimanjaro said the 19,340-foot climb required a minimum of five days. Much to their surprise, I did it in three—just as I had planned. Calculating how much of the rough terrain I could cover in a day, I had a clear and realistic goal in sight. From there, my greatest asset was focus.

I can help you reach your goals, too. Whether you feel like you’re at the base of an impossible mountain or you simply feel the need for an experienced guide, I can help you to the top.

  • As a participant in the South Dakota Senior Olympics, I believe physical fitness and overall well-being are just as important as financial fitness.
