I’ve never felt the pressures, or disadvantages of being the middle child. Even though my siblings are very successful in their own right, my dreams were always set high; aiming to help my father expand his accounting practice into a financial planning business.
It wasn’t hard to convince my father to make the switch. The opportunity was clear; we would be able to offer our clients a unique and comprehensive financial offering and eventually become a highly-respected leader in our industry. 6 years on, we’ve achieved this and more; now managing over $30 million in assets for our clients.
I’m proud to say that I’ve been able to make such an impact in the family business; and all before turning 30. I have an incredible relationship with my father, and I’m really thankful that we’ve been able to keep our relationship strong and achieve these goals as a team.
Now that I’ve entered my 30’s, I’m excited to see what they will bring. Who knows; I could become an investment innovator, property mogul, or perhaps even a professional world traveller! Only time will tell.
