Listen to what Paul Berry has to say about Realistic Retirement For Realistic People - Look Before You Leap Book
We’re a mom, pop, son, and golden retriever independent financial services firm in Columbus, Ohio, specializing in retirement income planning. Our respective names are Dian, Randy, Todd, and Callie. Dian and Callie really run the show while Randy and Todd meet with clients.
Randy gave up a short-lived career in the field of chemistry when he resigned from Battelle Memorial Institute in 1970 to embark on a new journey in financial services. Todd left a safe career in manufacturing with one of the world’s largest family-owned businesses to join Randy early in 1996. It didn’t take long for existing and new clients to see that Todd was a valuable addition to the firm.
