Rich's Business Philosophy:

In the grand scheme, money is not that important. Money is only significant to the extent that it allows you to enjoy, focus, and accomplish the things that are important to you. My goal is to alleviate the worry of your finances. I believe that not worrying about your finances is important to helping you have a life that excites you, nurtures those you love, and fulfills your highest aspirations.
