Why do you do what you do?
In 2010, my mom suffered a debilitating stroke.
Faced with costly caregiving expenses and little financial resources available, I saw the quality of life for my parents decline.
I became determined to help them.
To learn more about proper financial planning, I pursued my dream to become a Wealth Advisor.
As a wealth advisor, I strive to be not only a valuable resource but also a trusted advisor who can help improve the quality of people’s lives through finances, to help them avoid the same financial fate as my parents.
What do you feel most grateful for in life?
Every day is a gift.
I am truly thankful for everything in my life from my wonderful wife, Mayo, and my children, Ai and Riku, to good health, great relationships and the opportunity to make a tremendous difference in people’s lives through my career as a Wealth Advisor.
What is the best piece of advice I have ever received?
A baseball coach once told me to not have “any regrets”. That is something that I took to heart and it is something that I live by. To me, having no regrets means giving 100% max effort, always being prepared, and doing the best that I can do. In other words, in baseball analogy: always swing for the fences.
