Erik Smith– In 2009 my mom retired to take care of my ailing father which we know was the worse time to retire but she had me look at her financial accounts to see what I thought being a numbers guy. At the time I was in optometry school focused on helping people see and I did not understand she had so many fees and why she was taking as many risks. Fast forward a few years when I decided I wanted to own a business and help families on a different level and with a pregnant wife I did not want to be the irresponsible parent living without life insurance it made sense for me to get into the business of helping families protect, save, and grow their money. In my eyes this would clear of their financial picture to where they could see themselves no longer having to work because they have to and because they want to.
