Most people face obstacles and give up. Eric had many obstacles in his journey, but he kept moving on. Being so young in the finance industry was hard, and he wasn’t sure of whom to trust. The opposite was also true; it was tough to gain the trust of people early on, especially those older than him.

Eric had to use persistence and perseverance as his main weapons to combat the obstacles that were thrown at him. He knew that everything would fall into place with time, and it would be beneficial for his business and him and his family.

To date, Eric focuses on quality and well being of his clients by ensuring he surpasses their expectations and needs.
