The one thing I am passionate about...
Striving to be the most trusted, knowledgeable, and competent financial professional possible by my clients. Other noted passions: learning Spanish, playing racket ball, and most importantly, being the best I can be at whatever I do.
I typically spend my leisure time
Meeting with friends, biking, rollerblading, racquetball, traveling, and studying Spanish.
The most influential person in my life has been
Communication. Talk about it. Don't let it build and fester into such a massive problem that the actual size and not the underlying issue becomes so overwhelming. More talking equals less big problems.
The first thing people notice about me
My thoughtfulness and manners. I genuinely want to know how the other person's day is going. If I can add just a little happiness or comfort to their day, I feel better. I truly believe in the Golden Rule. There are many mean and hurtful people out there, I don't ever want to become one of them. FYI...No, the Golden Rule doesn't mean the one who has the gold makes the rules!!!
The last book I read and enjoyed
"Winning," by Jack Welch (former CEO of GE). Whatever you do in life, give it a 100% or don't do it at all. Always strive to be the best, BUT, don't forget to stop and smell the roses along the way. And don't ever forget the people that help you get there. Getting there is MORE than half the fun. The destination is no longer a challenge because you are now there.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My health.
- Being unconditionally loved by my family.
- Having the opportunity to get a fantastic education and being able to implement my learning in a great profession and company.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
People learn very quickly where they stand with me, so I am not too sure what I wish they notice right away.
Friends Describe me as
Genuine, Loyal, Passionate, Romantic
A little more about me
I find great joy in being EXTREMELY affectionate if it is returned. Holding hands and softly kissing the back of my significance others neck is the best. I have be known to give a foot massage through an entire movie.
