Getting to know Larry:
What are you doing when you’re not working? When I am not working, Shannon and I are usually watching our kids in their various sports, 12 months out of the year. When I am not doing that, I am either on a date with my wife or I am in the woods or on the water.
Why are you a financial advisor? I was fascinated with stocks and investing when I was a kid – I loved to read the stock quotes with my father and grandfather and pretend I was investing my own money. When I was in college, I did well in Finance and Economics courses, so I decided to become a stockbroker. I quickly learned that this profession wasn’t just about picking stocks or investments but more importantly, building long, trusted relationships with clients. Many of whom I now consider friends and extended family – not just clients.
What is one thing on your bucket list? Take batting practice at an MLB stadium*, preferably Wrigley Field. This was completed in September of 2018, although not at Wrigley...
What would you have for your last meal? I would start with a plate of fresh oysters and a martini – gin (shaken) with two olives. I would have a big plate of spaghetti with Italian sausage and a side of my BBQ ribs. I would finish with a slice of key lime pie and wash it down with a tall glass of ice cold milk.
To date, what has had the most profound impact on your life? Losing my dad suddenly and at a relatively young age really changed my outlook on life. Experiencing that huge loss taught me two things: Always have a plan in place (which my parent's did) and live everyday to the fullest!
What is your greatest accomplishment? I have two. Marrying my soulmate and having three awesome kids.
