At some point in all of our working lives, we ask ourselves “Why am I doing this job?” or “Why did I choose this career?”

I have asked myself that question at every position I’ve held over the past 10 years and it was hard to find answers. That is, until this position.

Finally, I’ve found the career and company that make me incredibly excited to walk into the office every day. I’m not saying I wasn’t happy with the other companies I worked for – it just feels different now.

Is it the people I see passionately doing what they love every day? Is it the leadership that speaks about our movement with such excitement? Is it the unexpected value we find for the families we serve? For me, all of these questions return a resounding yes!

With this job, I finally found my why, and a reason to be excited about my family’s future. My wife, Kellyn; 2-year-old son, Hayes; 3-month-old daughter, Sloane; and I have so many things to be thankful for this year, and the company I represent is one large piece.

Brad Dillon wrote in a previous blog post that a phone call led him “on my own journey of living a life of purpose and fulfillment.” I couldn’t have said it better myself. It was a phone call. Then an Excell conference. Finally a meeting with Ron Carson, Paul West and other people who are important to me today. That’s when I realized this is the place I want to be.

Our movement “to be the most trusted for financial advice” is the phrase that helped me realize my why. The conversations I now have with clients are about life, understanding what is most important, and providing guidance to help them make the best, most-informed decisions to live their life by design, not by default. It all comes back to the Value of Relationship

Building a relationship with families and helping them accomplish their life’s goals has become exceptionally fulfilling. I hope that as you read this, you know your why and have a trusted financial professional to help you accomplish your goals, too.
