Right after we were born, my Nana opened a savings account for my sister and me. No one in my family had ever gone to college, so Nana made it her mission to save every penny she could. After every one of our little-league games, she’d stay late in her muumuu, collecting cans in burlap sacks. I was so embarrassed.
Once the bags were full, she would take us to the aluminum recycling center. Then she would take us to the bank to deposit the cash received from recycling into our college savings accounts. She did that for 18 years while living in a 900 square foot home. She put both my sister and I through college without any debt whatsoever. She’s where I learned about investing.
My Nana significantly influenced my life's trajectory and inspired my start at Edward Jones. Not only did she teach me the power of persistence, but I also learned not to judge a person’s financial success by their appearance. Every client is important. Your dreams and the people you care about are the reason we do what we do.
My wife, Christen, and I have our own family now. I want to be proud of the decisions I make for my two boys, Lincoln and Emmett, the same way I want to be proud of the decisions I help you make. My hope is that over time, you will be as impacted by our relationship as I have been by my Nana.
