FROM WALL STREET TO MAIN STREET ON TWO WHEELS
Happy New Year; I thought it would be great to use an example of someone I have helped over the years. The following story really touches my heart with a client and fellow rider I met about a year ago. I have changed his name and some of the numbers of the principal to protect our client, but it is a very real client and I see this over and over again. John came to me about a year ago. After our meeting, I asked him to go home and gather anything that related to his financial situation so we…

I was just another highly charged workaholic running through the maze, trying desperately to maintain sanity while pursuing the elusive American dream. And then, I took a motorcycle ride.
