Jim Cornell

Appointment Administrator

I was born and grew up in a small town in upper Michigan. I went to college and got a degree in Mechanical Engineering and was engaged as a Plant Manager for several Steel Fabrication facilities.  Family is very important to me- I am married to my wife Elaine and have two daughters. I have through those 40 years held a strong interest and passion for Financial Planning, stocks, other investments, Life Insurance and the things that really relate to your Financial Planning for the future. I have often thought that I should have found a career in Financial Planning, but it wasn’t meant to be. I then retired and realized that I still had a half a tank of gas left in me, but I didn’t know what to do with it. Suddenly I was given the opportunity to be part of a team for a Financial Planning Group and enjoy connecting with the people. My role as an appointment administrator allows me the opportunity to be an active part of a team, actively contributing, setting goals, interacting with others and helping them follow their path to financial peace of mind. I may not be introducing them to their financial opportunities but setting the appointment starts the ball rolling. If we don’t start something we can’t successfully complete it.
