Ever since I was young, I always loved markets. I would play free market trade with my action figures. Determining if certain goods were worth other goods I could trade for. I spent hours as a child playing markets.
In my teenage years, it was compounding interest that caught my attention. A simple lesson from my grandfather put it into perspective. I remember him asking me to choose if I would rather have a dollar a day for a year or he could pay me a penny a day but he would double the amount every day for a year.
Now that I am "all grown up" and a financial advisor, I can't imagine doing anything else. Helping hard-working individuals and families increase their net worth and achieve what's financially important to them is deeply rewarding.
