Why I became an advisor... My passion for becoming a financial advisor stemmed from the seeds that my parents planted when they came to America in the early 90s. As a restaurant entrepreneur, my parents worked 72 hours per week that provided food and shelter for the family over a decade. As grateful as I was for my parents instilling work ethic upon my siblings and I, they never developed a retirement nest egg for themselves. As a 1st generation immigrant, I can relate with those who work hard to provide for their family but lacked the knowledge or insight to plan for retirement. That is why it brings me a sense of fulfillment when I’m able to help families plan for their future.
