Traveling to one of our office locations for financial education is often not convenient for distance, traffic, and work schedule. However, current technology can connect our team with clients no matter where they live. We had one thing in mind when considering this new service, increasing access to provide financial education for the many individuals who are currently unable to access services due to distance or cost.
