Most professional bios are pretty boring so instead of going down that same path Carleton decided to answer some random questions that hopefully will give you a better understanding of who he is.  You can always jump over to his LinkedIn page to see his more traditional professional resume here

Who is someone you admire and why?

Abraham Lincoln. I admire Abe for his incredible ability to bring our country together in times of great strife and turmoil during the civil war as well as helping orchestrate the abolishment of slavery. He also was a man of integrity who led our country but was also down to earth and approachable treating every one of his fellow citizens with dignity and respect regardless of their social status.  

What is a typical day like for you?

A typical day usually consists of me on the phone or in meetings with clients or prospective new clients while also keeping abreast of the financial markets, news, and anything else important that is going on in the world. I also talk with other colleagues in my industry to share ideas and best practices as they pertain to investments and financial planning.  

Do you have any skills or talents that most people don't know about?

I play around on the acoustic guitar a little bit and try to pretend I'm a great singer-songwriter!  

If you could be anywhere other than here, right this minute, where would you be?

On the water somewhere!  I am a Pisces and I love the water especially with a fishing rod in my hand.   

If we went to happy hour, what would you order?

I am a beer guy - preferably craft beer on tap but also like the old school brews like Coors Original.  

On Sunday mornings, you can usually find me........

Usually at church with my wife and son (assuming we didn't stay out too late Saturday night!)  

What do you think are the best skills you bring to the job?

My ability to listen in order to understand and know my clients. By really getting to know them, I can advise them with the right strategies to help them accomplish what they truly want to achieve. In addition to this is my ability to take more complex matters and break them down into more simpler terms that my clients can better understand. I am also a good educator of these things.  

Name three words that describe you.

Authentic, Compassionate, Pragmatic.

What publications do you read regularly?

The Wall Street Journal, Barron's, ESPN, and lots of various social media.

What are you happiest doing when you're not working?

Being with my family! I am a husband and father to my new son Finn.  

What do you want to make sure you do before you die?

Travel - I would love to step foot on every continent before I die!
