Over the last 3 years I’ve been devising a method to facilitate investing at the local level in ways that are simple, legal, and beneficial to all involved (investors, the businesses receiving the investment, and the communities in which they reside). This endeavor poses significant challenges and it’s success is by no means assured. However, the thought of looking back and wondering what might have been compelled me to make a difficult decision.
In order to accomplish this, I had to resign as a financial advisor.
I’ve come as far as I can with planning, now it’s time for action. Time to take a risk and see if I can create change where I see a need.
Until I’m ready to officially launch, I’ll be helping the local economy through my efforts at Workshed, where I’m able to directly apply my skills, knowledge, and experience to help businesses connect with customers.
Stay tuned, it should be an interesting experience.
