A Message From Mark
Click to listen
My path to this profession began when my late father suffered a fatal heart attack in 1974. He was 50 years old and I was 11, the youngest of four boys. In a sudden and shocking instant, our lives changed forever. My family's financial health was in jeopardy, there was no will, no key to a safety deposit box, no savings to speak of and my late mother (then 48) was forced to re-join the workforce.
I'll never forget what happened to my family and that's why my professional life is devoted to protecting you and your family from 'what happens next'.
All our clients are busy and successful people. Most are usually too busy taking care of others to take care of their personal planning.
WEALTHinsurance.com® developed from 25 years of experience at illnessPROTECTION.com.
Wealthy clients sought our help beyond insurance and estate planning. Most wanted to reduce taxes now while ensuring financial security for future generations... no matter what happens.
We look forward to helping you and your family.
P.S. We have never met with anyone who didn't take away vital information to enhance their financial security.
