Are you stuck in a 9 to 5 world?

I just returned inspired and appreciative from the annual BAM Alliance conference in St. Louis. I continue to be impressed with the investment and wealth management resources that are available to Flourish Wealth Management by partnering with the BAM Alliance. The Conference also provided a rewarding opportunity to connect with the 140 plus independent firms that are members of the BAM Alliance.
