Nuggets of Knowledge


"I never lose. I either win, or learn.” - Nelson Mandela

When we first started Retirement Connection in 2008 in Portland, things were tougher than we expected- living in a new city with a struggling economy. We did not hit all our goals and it definitely was not as smooth as we planned. However, I learned to try harder, budget time and money better, dig deeper, and see the support from my family that I may have overlooked in the past. I would not exchange those tough start up years for anything because they have shaped me for the better. What I value the most is not our growth, but the trust and support I feel from those close to me.
