We mission is to empower women to experience purpose, freedom and abundance. We accomplish this by inspiring and coaching families on the truths of investing and design a plan that support your purpose.
As the father of two beautiful young women, I believe that my life's purpose is to provide them with purpose, freedom and abundance. My wife and I work on this everyday by creating an environment for them to success, fail, learn from their failures and build a high level of self confidence and self esteem. (oh...and they are really sarcastic!) My desire is that they evolve into successful and strong women with values including love, family, integrity, enthusiasm and excellence.
I would like to share our mission and vision with women who's values align with ours.
As the son of a college professor (Dr. Herbert Ringel, PhD, Physics), Michael’s passion for teaching began at a very early age. While his father wanted him to pursue the same noble profession, Michael’s mathematical mind and entrepreneurial spirt led him down a different path. After pursuing his CPA and MBA, he shared with his father that he would be pursuing a career in teaching and education, except in a non-traditional setting. He decided to empower families to achieve purpose, freedom and abundance in the lives by inspiring and coaching families on the truths of investing and designing a plan that supports their purpose.
Since 2004, Michael’s has been working with business owners, divorced women, families with children with special needs and typical families to build confidence around their money.
Michael’s philosophy is to guide each family to discover for themselves what is important to their family, both personally and financially. Then, Michael shares with each family a variety of financial strategies that are prudent for them. He shares with them what may be financially possible for them in the future. It is only then, when they agree upon a prudent strategy, that financial products and services are recommended to fulfill each strategy. Michael’s academic approach to financial planning has served his clients well.
