Describe your business. Did you find it, or did it find you?
We work with select families in the greater Roseville area, overseeing and coordinating their financial affairs, and we do this very carefully. Before working with any potential new family, we ensure that it will be a good fit. We do this by really getting to know our clients through questions and identifying what they would like to accomplish through our relationship. We encourage the family to do the same by lifting up the hood, kicking the tires, and making sure all their questions are answered by us.
What was your first job, and what did you learn from this experience?
My brother and I were the neighborhood entrepreneurs growing up. Washing cars, mowing lawns, babysitting, etc. My first official job was as a dishwasher at the Headquarter House restaurant in Auburn. I learned the value of working hard and doing my best at all times.
Who is your role model in business or life, and why?
The support, love and guidance from my immediate family have been invaluable. Outside of family, former UCLA men’s basketball coach John Wooden has been a strong role model. His character and ability to achieve great success by doing it the “right way” is something I have always admired and strived to emulate.
What’s your biggest job perk?
Meeting and having relationships with some of the most amazing people you could ever want to know. We are truly fortunate to work with the wonderful families here.
What’s your favorite place to eat out locally?
My wife and I both like Mexican food. We enjoy Mas Mexican Restaurant in Roseville.
If you could meet someone living or dead, who would it be and why?
I would really enjoy meeting all of my grandparents and having the opportunity of getting to know them better.
If you could be any other profession what would it be?
A teacher and basketball coach. I love seeing kids grow and accomplish things that are beyond their wildest dreams.
And finally, customer service is...?
The Golden Rule with a twist! Treating others the way you would want to be treated, and at the same time treating others the way they need to be treated. This involves really knowing your client and serving their unique needs.
