“I get a real charge out of helping people. I get even more charged when people tell me how great the experience has been. Aside from spending time with my family, nothing is more exciting, energizing and fulfilling than building my business. I love my industry.” This leads to his core purpose as a Financial consultant: I am driven every moment of everyday, to be the best in the business. What does it mean to be the best? For Allen, it means having a burning desire to talk with clients every day, to educate, inspire, and ultimately help them. It means consistently striving to be better and do better. It means doing what’s right and making that the soul of what you do. You’ll win much more than you’ll lose. It means critical thinking and being unafraid to say what is in the best interest of the client. For these clients, Allen prepares customized financial plans at a level of detail – focusing on the biggest threat to Americans, taxes – that other planners simply won’t. Its his way of pursuing his vision: To be regarded by Advisors, professionals, and clients as the best financial planning organization in Southeast Georgia and Northeast Florida, synonymous with the highest levels of quality, respect and influence.
