Your Mission Point Planning Team | Divyesh
“I truly value being able to offer straightforward and objective advice to my clients to help provide financial independence. I want those I work with to both feel they are on track to enjoy their life now while being able to tolerate any curveballs life may throw at them.
“My path to becoming a financial advisor was different than most. Originally my life goal was to become a dentist. However, in my early 20’s and within the blink of an eye, my life changed. My father was in a debilitating auto accident which left him severely disabled. I had to grow up fast and take on responsibilities that I probably wasn’t ready for and never thought I would bear.
“My passion for financial planning comes from the trials and tribulations that my family endured right after my father’s accident. Due to a lack of a proper plan in place, our family survived but it was anything but smooth. My goal for all of my clients is to make sure that their family doesn’t have to suffer through those same struggles like mine.
