Doing our Best to Make Work Optional For Our Clients


We Look forward to hearing your story.


What we do might not be all that interesting,                                             

but why we do it is.  


Here's my story.


John J. Checki Jr.    Our Story, 

 

            Financial Planning and Simple and Elegant Wealth Management? What we do doesn't

sound all that interesting, yet why we do it, is. How did I become a wealth manager, financial

planning, and retirement income planning specialist, for widows and widowers, along with Engineers, and Business Owners (ready to walk off the stage)?  It started with

a sense of Joy and Humor, to help clients remember how far they have come along in life

toward their hopes, dreams and goals. As a very little boy, my father wore suits and ties to

work. Thanks to his boss, my mom’s uncle Willie’s murder, dad went from blue suits to a blue

collar. His income dropped by 80% overnight and our lives were forever changed. Promised

myself, I would help families have the plan and resources to meet and beat the bumps in the

road of life. He also was a motivator. I was inspired when my father said to me, “Johnny, I

don’t care where you go to school, cause I’m not paying for it.” My dad doing his motivational

speaker debut. Must have been the right phrase for me, I have two college degrees and a trio

of certificates, more importantly, I went to work to prevent other families from having to tell

their children, they could not educate them, nor could they build wealth or financial

independence. The mission was on for me.  My parents worked hard, saved, but never did all

that well with money. They talked about money (the lack of) and work. Work as in how hard it

was, and how they wished it wasn’t that way. The Joy and Humor? Well, kissed my wife good

bye on March 15th, 1999, never saw her again. She was killed in a car wreck, while she was

driving South on I-35 to see children and grandchildren. We had an estate plan in place,

again, the mission was and is on. The Humor? When you are widowed at 51 you can develop

perspective on what is and what is not a bad day. Went to Stand-up Comedy Schools to learn

how not to step on the laughs. Also, a passion? To help Widows and Widowers grow through

the Suddenly Single Experience.

As a little boy, I had dimples lived in a two story, two family house, on the not so amazing part

of town, yet had the good luck to meet Mr. Connolly, who was kind enough to live upstairs,

and take walks with me after dinner and talk about college, investments, and life in general.

He helped me develop my curiosity about the stock market. Corpus Christi Church helped me

develop memory skills, and belief in God. Lincoln Grade School, Franklin Jr. High School, and

Hasbrouck Heights High School honed my math and speech skills. Newark College of

Engineering introduced me to the power of flunking a course, and how to respond to

scholastic probation. Decided not to be an engineer, since I could not draw or spell. Sun

Chemical helped me learn about long range research and patents. Shop-rite Supermarket

introduced me to a stock broker, who helped me open up a brokerage account and I started

investing while in high school. Won, lost, and learned about buying and selling stock, saving,

taxes, reading and hearing other people stories. TCU taught me writing, speaking, and

Economics. The University of Texas Arlington, helped me with my Accounting degree. Wow,

what an adventure. Also bought an MGA, fun little car. Still like convertibles especially luxury

sports cars. The MGA is long gone. The Passion and Purpose live on daily.

 

When all is said and about to be done, I love to ask the right questions to better understand

you, and see if we can work together improving each other’s lives and making life more

pleasant and enriching our worlds. Have fun and be well.
