He walked with me through some of the most difficult times of my life.

Writing a testimonial to explain how someone has impacted your life is never an easy job. I have thought and thought about how I wanted to put into words how Scott has not only contributed on a professional level but a personal level in so many ways in my and my children’s lives.

I met Scott Carlson about 3 years ago in a completely different line of work that he was doing, in a not-so-bright time in my life. Scott, being the light of direction that he has always been, quickly became one of my dearest friends by showing me how to navigate through the tough waters of even the simplest things in life like getting a job, buying a house, and seeking medical and mental health care. He walked with me through some of the most difficult times of my life. He stood strong by my side and always was a light of hope and direction no matter how dark the road seemed.

So, when he went into the field of financial advising it only made sense that I would follow him and his advice on where my money, and in turn, my kids’ money would go and to whom I would entrust it. He has never let me down whenever I have called, always answering the phone regardless of if I had a silly request to skip a month’s contribution to my investments because I bought something too expensive, or more seriously when I needed help with a family issue. Scott has always come through and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for him in this new adventure, or for us on this new path of friendship.

Thank you for all you do and have done Scott.
