Michael says “I love educating people, and providing them the personal power to take control of the decision making when it comes to their own financial future. Over the years, I’ve seen so many people rely on others to make their decisions, and that very often ends in disappointing results.” Michael is married and lives in the beautiful community of Carmel Valley.
