What we’re about

Do you worry about financial security and building wealth but unsure how to start or how to stay on-track? Or do you worry about your financial net worth because, even though you are on-track, you know there must be things you could be doing better? If either of these are you, please consider joining the Financial Freedom Group. This is an opportunity to gain wisdom from myself and each other in a casual, supportive environment. The group is for anyone looking to achieve financial freedom.

The Plan:
We will meet once a month at same location, same time. For example: Third Wednesday of every month at 7:30am. I'm working on location. Any suggestions?
