It is an honor to have clients (friends) across Michigan, Arizona, Florida and Virginia. When I was in the media business for 25 years, I was blessed with consistent top ratings on morning radio as "Michaels in the Morning." I also ran 2 businesses, Creations Recording Studio and Rich Michaels Productions which cemented my relationships working for advertising clients which gave me a firm business acumen. In 1989, I began one of my many loves and that was the study of the markets and how they function. That love transitioned into a passion and growing practice in 2013 with Voya Financial Advisors, Inc.
I relish honesty and directness in both my personal and business life. My duty is to do what is best for you based on your given situation. I don't mince words. Sometimes, I am put in the position of gently telling folks financial realities they don't want to face, however, I believe every American has the brains and talents to alter their paths and work towards building wealth. I attempt to provide, if needed, a little discipline and my goal is to guide you to make informed decisions with your monies. I will use my extensive life experience, business ownership background and my professional knowledge in financial planning to help you pursue your goals. I will work hard to earn your Trust.
