On the afternoon of Thursday, February 16th, I was sitting in my office, finishing notes and emails after my last client meeting had finished when I got the following message:
It is both a gratifying and humbling feeling to receive this honor. As a matter of fact, it is a great affirmation of the work that the TEAM at Impel Wealth Management continues to do that we have been recognized on this list all three years of our existence.
What makes this more meaningful, is that this ranking is based on quantitative, as well as qualitative measures such as mission, values, team and community engagement. These are all things that are extraordinarily important to us.
During the conference, which took place in Las Vegas during the last week of February, meaning, values and giving back to community were all on full display. We had a presentation from the Make-A-Wish foundation, and there were approximately 800 people in the room. After the presentation they gave us an opportunity to financially support the organization's mission to help the children and their families.
I am happy to report that they got the largest one-day donation from any organization ever that day, by more than double their previous high. Over $1.4 million was pledged in that room to support Make-A-Wish's mission of granting life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. In a world and profession that is often times caught up in money and the markets, it was AWESOME to see the hearts of people show up in a big way to support these families.
I would like to thank you for your support of the team at Impel Wealth Management. We will do our best to continue to serve you, our friends and family, with excellence and dignity. Please feel free to pass this message on to others that may be looking for someone who can help them in a similar way. It is another way that we can all help others as we continue" Moving Life Forward" together.
