Our Story - A Zebra Among Horses
In 1989 – just a couple years out of college – Founder and CEO Lawrence Ford decided he wanted to help make the world a better place. As he looked around, it appeared that money was controlling people. He thought it should be the other way around. Never a follower of convention, Ford decided the only authentic way to follow his purpose was to start his own financial advisory practice. Just five short years later, and lots of macaroni and cheese dinners, he made it to the top of the charts with unprecedented rapid growth in clients.
At age 30, he stood backstage as one of the top ten advisors in the nation at a National Leaders Conference in Banff, Canada and was about to be paraded in front of 2,500 other top advisors. He stood alone as the other nine advisors backstage with him mingled among themselves. The group finally made it over to where Ford was standing and asked, "Hey kid, tell us what your secret is – how did you make it here so fast?" Ford responded in his natural, authentic way and shared, "There's no secret – we just love every single client." They all walked away. That is when Ford realized that he was a zebra in a herd of horses.
After a decade of esteemed accomplishments in and out of the business world, Ford decided to create the ultimate financial advisory services – one that he hopes to be the model for the future.
