A Week of Targets Hit

| March 26, 2019

It has been an incredible week here in the Rocket City. The Missile Defense Agency that is based in Huntsville announced they had successfully conducted the first ever GBI Salvo Intercept. Our hats are off to the men and women who have worked on this project both as Federal Employees and DOD Contractors. God bless each and everyone of you for making our country safe.

Our founder recently completed and passed the Retirement Income Certified Professional (RICP) course. She won’t be able to officially add that to her title until our compliance department has a copy of the certification, but it was a target that Laura was working on hitting for a long time. The coursework and future certification will give her an even stronger understanding of turning all your investments and assets into your income for the next 25 plus years, thus helping you hit your retirement “target.”

Speaking of targets, Laura also mastered the mini target on the sporting clay's course up at Limestone Hunting Preserve and Sporting Clays. The target is considerably smaller and flies much faster than the conventional sporting clay's target. It is considered a very tough target and is thrown in many of the bigger national tournaments. Thank you, Wayne Mitchell, for giving us the opportunity to work on these targets!

If you would like to see if you are on track for hitting your retirement or investment target, give us a call at 256-417-4870.
