After his mother became Ill and had no one to take care of her, he came home to provide day-to-day care for her. He was thankful for the time he had with her that was often spent in deep conversation. During one of those motherly talks. she gently reminded him that his life’s focus had been all about him. This one conversation had a big impact on him and altered his future professional direction in life.
Upon the passing of his mother, Michael knew it was time to restart his business life, but this time his focus would be helping others achieve their financial goals. This new direction drove him to co-found StoneWolfe Financial with Bonnie Griffith. Today he and Bonnie proudly help pre-retirees in their transition from a working life to a life in retirement.
