Nice piece Jason. Reminds me of how Nexus Strategy was formed in a similar crucible. We all have our Jerry Maguire moments and it is great to see yours turn into reality! Thanks for sharing.
Beverly Hills Wealth Management is proud of you Jason.
We have come a long way my friend! Great to see your success and know you will always be part of the United Capital family. Godspeed in your new endeavor!

Really good stuff, Jason. You’ve always been there for me too, BTW. Seemingly like your situation (and it sounds like Tim W’s as well), similar circumstances in starting Advice Dynamics Partners. From one entrepreneur to another, cheers!
Thanks guys, I appreciate these comments very much, I’m excited to be on this path and working amongst outstanding people such as yourselves.
