It’s important to me as a business owner—and as a person—to give back to the community in which I live, to contribute in a real way to its vitality and success. I feel energized and inspired by the people that I’ve met through volunteering, and I value being a part of the good work that’s being done.
Financial advising is a part of my life but not my whole life. I see volunteering and giving back of my time and resources as a way to keep my priorities in check, it helps remind me that work is important, but it’s not the most important thing. I hope you’ll take the time to check out these great organizations that I’ve been blessed to connect with and see if there’s a way you might want to connect or contribute to the good work they’re doing. I would also enjoy hearing about other organizations and causes that are important to you!
