Chris Everett Founder Story
Hi, thanks for wanting to know more.
Sometimes, no matter how hard we plan, life interrupts and we end up on a different path – hopefully even a better road than originally planned.
I wanted to be a doctor. So how did I get here?
After I married, I went to University of Illinois at Chicago. Toward the end of my first year we started our family and that interrupted my plan to be a doctor. A few years later I went back to College, but life occurred and I had to change direction. All of sudden I was on my own raising two young girls as a single mom.
I became a voracious reader to educate myself and make up for all that I didn’t get in college. Not to brag, but I probably have the equivalent of a master’s degree by now – although not formally. Being self-taught has its advantages.
I discovered how meaningful proper financial advice could be and changed career focus to financial services. There are many financial service models but the one I was most comfortable with is the fiduciary model.
A fiduciary model allows me to live in integrity and create a culture of honor in our practice that puts our clients first. That's how I was raised and it's been a great foundation to stand on. It’s also the birthing of my desire is to help every client create a personal wealth solution. It has to be personal because we all come from such varied background and resource levels. Personal because you have to own it and really understand it whether it’s an estate plan, retirement plan, implementing an investment strategy or paying for college.
I'm proud of what we've built at Everett Wealth Solutions. My clients must be too because we get many referrals.
Helping individuals and families plan for a sound financial future is my passion, and I am honored to be able to get the message out and do what I love.
I look forward to helping you create your personal wealth solution!
