Sarah M. Cato, Director Business Strategies Group- First Financial Group
Having developed and/or served as the CEO of 4 mid-market companies prior to becoming a Financial Advisor over 14 years ago, I believe that only by understanding and integrating one’s financial strategies from a 360 degree perspective, can the best possible outcome be achieved. Because a business owner’s most important asset is usually their business, this holistic view is particularly important in helping my business clients achieve optimal financial security. Protecting and enhancing equity and turning it into cash at the right time can often mean the difference between a secure financial future and a future filled with worry. Click her to read full bio.
