My name iMikes Michael Powers. I would like to thank you for visiting this site and tell you a little about myself. I have been married for 19 years now, and have 3 children, all girls, ages 16, 13, and 9. I have been working as a financial planner for the past 23 years, and have worked with everything from little local owned offices to the biggest financial institutions in the country. Before that I spent time as a bank teller and personal banker, waited tables through college, and had a paper route as a kid before that.

Outside of work, I enjoy running, biking, and golf. I’m an avid baseball fan and have been in the same fantasy baseball league with friends for 27 years now. Hard to believe we have kept it going this long.

I started this website, or blog, or whatever you want to call it as a way to provide some basic free financial advice to those who need it. I won’t be charging you for your time on the site. Here, I work for you. I’ll be posting my own articles, articles from around the web that I find interesting, as well as links to resources I find useful.

Please feel free to drop me a line at mike@mikeworksforme.com.
