Gord is an Insurance/Financial Advisor. We met over Twitter when I was launching Ambitious Adulting and he graciously agreed to share some of his tips to other Ambitious Adults.
What is something you do to help other ambitious adults?
I provide financial advice and business advice to young entrepreneurs starting their own business.
How did you get started in your career?
I first started my insurance career as a service rep for a pay cheque, but realized after about two years that I was making a real difference to some of my clients. I then made the decision to open my own office in my hometown (Waterdown) where I could help the people I care about most, those in my community.
Ambitious Adults should always keep learning! What are you working on learning?
I’m currently working on my Certified Financial Planner (CFP) and Chartered Life Underwrite (CLU) designations to better help my clients plan for today and the future.
What advice can you offer the Ambitious Tribe?
Don’t be afraid to seek advice from any number of professionals, be it insurance and finance or a lawyer or an accountant. You can’t learn what you don’t know you don’t know.
