My journey began in Richmond, IN, where my parents instilled in me faith in God, the value of hard work, and that anything I want to achieve in life is possible. My parents taught me that hard work, dedication to doing what's right, and having faith in God and oneself will help make any dream come true!
In 2002, I graduated from Indiana University with a B.A. in Economics, but did not know exactly what I wanted to be when I grew up, I just knew that I wanted to help people and their families more directly. During the last 10 years, I had the pleasure of doing just that, working with my true passion, Generation X.
The "sandwich" generation faces insufficient retirement savings, worries about aging parents, concerns about kids' college choices and costs, and being the first generation to experience the paradigm shift from the "safety" of pensions to the uncertainty of 401ks and IRA's.
This experience ultimately led me to create J. Dishon Financial, where I tailor solutions based on clients' concerns. I focus on areas of financial concern such as retirement planning (IRA's, 401k plans, and rollover consolidation), budgeting, college planning, wealth strategies, and protecting assets and families through life insurance.
I was formerly the radio host of "Everything Cha-Ching," which was heard every Tuesday evening on WDJY 99.1 FM (WDJYFM.com) and I have also been quoted and written articles in several media publications: Yahoo Finance, US News & World Report, and Forbes.
I take pride helping clients reach their financial goals and am blessed to fulfill my passion. J Dishon Financial is where goals are borne to succeed!
