From the Author...


"As a fiduciary, I am legally obligated to act in the best interests of my clients when financially planning. My mission is to help clients, students, and the people of the community weed through financial complexities and make sound, educated financial decisions that lead them to financial independence. I don't work for some large corporation...schools trust me (over 20 high schools and colleges had me present in 2020) because I am independent, and lead with education first. I created this guide in collaboration with JP Morgan's data, and I hope that you find it helpful. Feel free to follow along with any of our educational content."
