You Can Do More That Matters
60-90 minutes (Book signing available)
A truly inspirational presentation designed to help people "live more and give more." Many people have excess wealth, but live and plan as if they don't. Imagine being able to give life to the impact you’d like to make – both during your lifetime and through the legacy you'll leave behind – for the people, causes, and organizations you personally care about. If you knew you could, and that doing so wouldn't disrupt your lifetime financial objectives or your plans for children and loved ones, wouldn't you?
60-80 minutes (Includes a 30+ page handbook)
Most people agree "True Wealth" is more than money. When you think differently and plan wisely you can identify your true wealth and do what matters most to you personally. True Wealth gives you a fresh perspective and a roadmap so you can take action towards a life that positively impacts your life, your loved ones and your community.

Income Tax Reduction, Estate Tax Elimination

Are You a Doctor or a Pharmacist?
Financial professionals in all areas -- accountancy, law, investments, insurance, or other niche areas -- who value trusted client relationships, desire to guide clients as holistically, comprehensively, and strategically as possible. Due to the need to maximize efficiency and minimize expenses, we are often not well-positioned to serve clients in this more complete manner. In our broader community of professionals, we are not skilled at effectively communicating with each other to coordinate our various roles. Unfortunately, this forces our clients to assume the role of a “doctor,” directing their professionals, managing administrative details, and writing their own “prescriptions.” This thought-provoking presentation, invites you to consider whether you are serving clients as a doctor or a pharmacist – and the advantages of functioning in the optimal role.
Enhancing the Wealth of Your Life
What do you consider the "wealth of your life?" Most people readily agree it's about more than money. But, unless you begin to think differently and plan better, you’re at risk of missing your God-given opportunity to do the "more that matters" to you strategically, personally, and with impact. What if you had "excess" wealth? Wouldn't you want to know that? In fact, more people do have excess wealth, but they’re currently living and planning as if they don't. And getting to a point of believing that you have more than you need for yourself and your family might empower you to think meaningfully about your legacy -- or inspire you to give more to the people, causes, and organizations you personally care about. This presentation opens your heart and mind, enabling you to think differently.
So Much Purpose, So Little Time
This faith-based presentation describes God’s call for us to live lives of impact that leave a lasting legacy. Based on Psalm 90:12, it focuses on prioritizing our lives and thinking about what’s truly important. There is so much need in the world, and we only have a number of days. Wealth accumulation is held up as the ideal: risk management, peace of mind, freedom, security. Lack of accumulation is something to be feared. So the goal of life is to build up the pile. But God wants us to renew our mind, challenge the status quo, and think about His purposes creatively. The local church is where we can be encouraged to connect to God’s purpose. It gives us a place to find out how and to see results by adding our voice and resources. If we are going to serve God with our money, we need to have a plan – one that helps us discover how to attach our values to our money. This presentation is a powerful spark for reflection and conversation about life’s purpose and our personal legacy.
