Hello Tippers! LeTip Chester County East, the premier networking group of Chester County, hosted another interesting meeting. Our two guests included Mark Kochanowsky of A to Z Appliance Repair and, back for a 2nd visit, Janet Raimondo of Heartland Payment Systems (credit card processing & payroll services).

SPEAKERSTeri West of Superior Home Mortgage and Gary Siano of Guided Wealth Management (financial planner).

1st Speaker:  Teri can help current or potential home buyers with their mortgage needs – starting with a free credit score analysis. A good credit score starts at around 740, which directly impacts your mortgage financing options. Teri can advise clients on how to improve a credit score before they apply for a mortgage. And, of course, the first-time homebuyer tax credit ends April 30th! Good leads for Teri are engaged couples, current homeowners who are interested in upgrading their existing home and/or are looking to refinance their home.

2nd Speaker:  Gary discussed the different factors that influence your financial future: 1. Asset Allocation; 2. Sequence of Returns; and 3. Deposits and Withdraws. Gary takes the time to explain key investment concepts, in plain English, to his clients. He takes them through a financial discovery process - evaluating retirement goals, objectives, and understanding what is most important to them. Good leads for Gary are individuals who have been laid off from their job and need to rollover their 401K, as well as those that are getting ready to retire.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK"Somehow I can’t believe there are many heights that can’t be scaled by a man who knows the secret of making dreams come true. This special secret can be summarized in four C’s. They are: curiosity, confidence, courage, and constancy, and the greatest of these is confidence." By Walt Disney
