Retirement Redefined The Power of Tax-Deferred Growth Should You Tap Retirement Savings to Fund College? Saving for College 101

Welcome to: All About You Investment Solutions!

I know the last thing you need is another website to sell you anything. This site is dedicated to providing insight and furthering your knowledge and on a myriad of financial topics. It truly is a wonderful resource to you and those you know and love.

However it is just as important that you know about my practice and myself. Accessing the “ABOUT” tab above will allow you to look into more about me. This short video addresses why I'm an independent advisor and why that's important to you! 



I encourage you to explore my website thoroughly. The “RESOURCE CENTER” focuses on particular topics of interest quickly.

In “TOOLS” you’ll find a Glossary that helps with the lingo of investing. It’s OK I’m an interpreter for you. Plus, Tax Resources that provides tax information and much more. 

Discover the many “QUICK LINKS” at the bottom of the page to gain access to the topics that you, your family or your friends are looking for. 

Please, take a moment to sign up for the “MONTHLY NEWSLETTER” found on the right side of the website. The newsletter is typically a video that is less than 2 minutes long, AND you will not be harassed with unwanted correspondence from me. 

Lastly, there’s never a charge for a consultation. When you’re ready, reach out to me to discuss any topic of concern that you may have. All the information pages offer the opportunity to contact me with a question. 

However, you can always contact me directly at 419-250-3886 or by e-mail at [email protected]

When I can be of service to you or those you love, please let me know.
