I love grandparenthood. If you’re a grandparent, you get it. If you’re not, get ready for the best time of your life. Fortunately, both my kids live in Erie, so I get plenty of “Papa” time.
"You will get all you want in life if you help enough people get what they want.” -Zig Ziglar
Why I do what I do:
My favorite activity is spending time with family and my life-long friends. My second favorite thing to do is pursue my passion of being an entrepreneur - starting and growing a new business. Founding Evident Financial is the culmination of my career goal. Being in my 60's and helping people my age navigate retirement is very rewarding.
