I want fewer people to stress about money. That’s why I’ve started Office Hours. Tuesday and Wednesday nights at 7 pm MST we’ll talk money.

This is the first of a three part series where I'll be talking about ways to increase your earnings.
After ten years with Cenovus Energy, I left my steady paycheque to focus my financial planning business. Not a traditional sounding retirement but I’m hoping my experience starts a conversation.
