Every business has a story, tell us yours.
I practiced dentistry in Edina from 1985 to 2004. I was forced to give up the active practice of dentistry because of a career ending hand disorder.
I had insured my livelihood and income with three different insurance companies and when I went on claim two of the insurance companies said they would not pay benefits. After a lengthy legal battle it was settled in binding arbitration. I realized right then that there is a huge difference in contractual language in disability contracts. I began contacting all of my Dental buddies and auditing/reading their disability contracts for them. I wanted to make sure if they had the same thing happen to them that happened to me they would be protected.
I soon realized with months of internal reflection that my purpose here on earth was not going to be to treat dental disease but to treat financial disease. My business manifested from that realization and the desire to assist people through all phases of their financial life.

Two of my daughters got married this summer and we were able to successfully get through both of those huge events and had an incredible amount of fun doing that. I successfully got up on one ski again water skiing at the cabin. I celebrated 30 years of marriage with my lovely wife Valerie by traveling to Sedona and hiking the area.
No one likes to brag about their business, but if you HAD TO . . .
I believe financially people are in a mass of disarray and in many cases are headed for a train wreck when it comes to retirement.
My unique process will help organize their finances and mitigate the threats through the 30 to 40 years of accumulation with more protection, less risk, less taxes, and more wealth arriving at Retirement. In retirement we mitigate the risk of running out of money, inflation, taxes, and stock market volatility.
