Getting to Know Garrod
What do you like most about your job?
What I like most about my job is creating a tailored approach to our clients financial planning and finding solutions they might not have thought of. I also like learning about how our clients have become successful and the path that they took to get to where they are.
What person, living or deceased, would you most like to meet?
I’d personally like to meet Stephen Hawking.
What trait do you most value in your friends?
The trait that I value most in my friends is genuineness. Simply mean what you say, say what you mean, and follow through on commitments. Friendship should also be unconditional. Everyone goes through hard times and struggles, but true friends are the ones that stick around through all of that.
