My only regret is that I did not meet John sooner.

I first met John Gourley right before the world got put on pause as COVID-19 took us all by storm. He asked a simple question: “Who here wants a plan for their family to be taken care of?”

For years, I had been the kind of person who would never invest and hardly saved for the future. I was just banking on my TSP and pension once I was done with the military. After two very simple meetings with John, I finally started my journey to saving and investing for the future. My only regret is that I did not meet John sooner. I would highly recommend to anyone to sit down with him and have an open conversation about planning for their future. He is very laid back and over the course of the past two years, he has always been readily available to support me at a moment’s notice.
