I’m grateful for how much quicker my practice has grown than what I ever expected. Never imagined I’d be under 30 making over a quarter million a year.


Congratulations! Did anything particular work for you that you could share with the bowl?

grateful to take time to create moments with my family! take time to rest and enjoy what you’ve built!

Enjoy! Those moments make it all worth it


Grateful for building my business the way I did. Never took the big upfront commission. Always took the deferred payday. Takes years to pay off, but slow and steady wins the race.


i did the same. tough up front, but accelerates very nicely at year 3-4 for me. now 7.5 years in and very grateful i built it this way. discussion are focused on planning and goals rather than investment-speak and only performance or the markets

I’m grateful that I’m buying my dream building and that after only 6 years in this business that I have built a great practice with awesome relationships.

Getting a bonus 3 months earlier than expected!
