-Member education is essential to success.

Mark is a story person. He likes to know the unique backstory behind each of his individual clients. He’s interested in how they became the person they are today. Why? Mark says, “In my experience, our different life experiences mean that we all tend to bring certain biases to our decision-making processes. Sometimes this can actually undermine our ability to create, implement, and adhere to a plan.”

As a self-described creative type working in an analytical and data-heavy industry, Mark prefers an approach that is individualized for each Member. He’s learned that finding a reliable advisor to offer guidance through all of life’s financial challenges can seem intimidating at times, and he prides himself on presenting easy-to-understand solutions in a relaxed environment. Mark believes that educating Members is an essential component to any successful, long-term relationship. Plus, he believes that it’s critically important for Members to feel at ease with their decisions before, during, and after implementation.
