I've been a business owner, investor, and entrepreneur for over 21 years. Well over a decade ago, my wife and I had a significant net worth for our age. However, much of it was built on leverage - similar to Dave Ramsey - if you are familiar with his story.
My wife and I have been clients of The Wealth Group since 2006. Austin designed a plan that we followed for a few years, but due to my entrepreneurial nature, I eventually deviated from that plan and pursued whole life "bank on yourself" insurance, real estate, and other ventures.
While there certainly is a place for diversification, I'll never forget the day Austin Colby - owner of The Wealth Group - sat us down and explained that although we looked pretty good on paper, mathematically, it was a house of cards. I remember walking out of that meeting feeling like someone had punched me in the gut. Hindsight and regret can be painful, but can also motivate new habits, behaviors, and attitudes toward money. The Wealth Group helped change my core beliefs about money and my family's financial future. Remember, it is never too late to start making good decisions.
Ten years later, not only has our financial situation changed dramatically, but I've also joined The Wealth Group team using my business and personal finance experience to help business owners, entrepreneurs, affluent individuals, and motivated young families build and expand their financial future on solid footing, by holistically and proactively addressing all aspects of finance to include investing, tax, giving, estate and legacy planning.
I am happily married with four children. I serve on the deacon board at our church and enjoy staying active and playing golf.
