One day, Al Rich made a life-changing move: He picked up a personal finance book. From that point, he decided to end his decade-long career as a police officer to explore the world of finance. He believes his change in career will help his children make smarter financial decisions in the future.
The career change also connects with his community involvement: Rich serves on the allocations committee of the United Way of Lee, Hendry, Glades and Okeechobee Counties, helping ensure that funds goes directly where they are needed.
“You have to decide whether failure fuels fear or growth, it can’t be both,” Rich says.
Rich’s priorities in life are God, family and service, in that order. He loves watching his 11-year-old daughter, Karmen, and 8-year-old son, Garett, play sports, and going on trips with them and his wife, Erica. He enjoys running, biking and swimming.
