How it all started - 

"I remember fondly when my grandpa introduced me to the stock market as a teenager.  We checked the newspaper daily for stock quotes and I tracked his portfolio of mutual funds and individual stocks.  He guided me at the age of 18 to invest $250 into a mutual fund and I didn't look back. I went to college for finance and helping people make smart choices with their money has been a passion ever since."
