When Brett’s grandfather passed away 15 years ago, there were hundreds of people in attendance at his funeral; he was a very loved and respected man. Many people approached Brett and shared stories illustrating what a good man his grandfather was and how he had positively impacted them and the community. This experience taught him that what you do on a daily basis leaves a lasting impression on people. As a result of this, and other lessons, Brett made the commitment to be an influence for good in the lives of others, to put relationships first, to always be honest and transparent in all his dealings, and to give 150% to everything he does. It’s these principles that inspire and drive Brett in his career as a financial planner.
