CO-FOUNDER & AUTHOR

Rich Christiansen

Rich Christiansen is the person you think of when it comes to finding someone to help guide your family towards balance, success, and bonding at its finest. 

But, it hasn’t always come easy, and that’s why his story is relatable to so many busy parents and why it is his mission to share it with the world. Rich lives by these words from his mentor Stephen Covey:

“You can replace many things in this world; you can replace cars, money, jobs, and more. But the three things you cannot replace are your health, your trust relationships, and most importantly, you cannot replace your family.” 

 

Rich has gone on to become a successful entrepreneur, humanitarian, mentor, and thought leader. He is also the author of the best-selling book, The Zigzag Principle, co-author of Bootstrap Business: A Step-By-Step Business Survival Guide, and co-author of a book written with his son Tim called Even if Your Toes Turn Purple: Raising Teenagers that are Confident, Happy, and Stand Out.

Rich and his wife Gaye are the proud parents of five sons and a daughter they sponsor from Nepal and grandparents to eight beautiful grandchildren. In their free time, the Christiansen family enjoys exploring the outdoors and are always up for an adventure.  

The joy and gratitude Rich experiences in his life were made possible by learning how to embrace, bond, and build his family legacy. Now, it’s his mission to help you do the same.

CO-FOUNDER & AUTHOR 

Scott Ford

Scott Ford’s entrepreneurial spirit began as a young child when he would perform magic shows at friends’ birthday parties. And, from there, it has unfolded into the successful businessman he is today. 

His father’s philosophy that small business and entrepreneurship are the backbones of the economy triggered him to create the business mindset that has helped him help countless others.  

Early in Scott’s career as an insurance salesman, he witnessed many business owners lack the knowledge of money management and miss out on opportunities to maximize their earning potential. Because of this, Scott made it his mission to help other business owners pursue true wealth to experience financial freedom.  

 

Today, Scott is Managing Director, Partner & Wealth Advisor of Carson Wealth in Hagerstown, MD and Johnson City, TN. He is a Registered Financial Consultant (RFC) and has been an active Financial Technical Analyst since 2005. His firm specializes in comprehensive wealth management with his Way2Wealth proprietary process. 

His talents don’t stop there. He has also published three books including Financial Jiu-Jitsu: A Fighter’s Guide to Conquering Your Finances, The Widow’s Wealth Map: Six Steps to Beginning Again, and the New York Times Bestseller, The Sustainable Edge: Fifteen Minutes a Week to a Richer Entrepreneurial Life. 

Married to his wife Angie, they have two children and three adorable grandchildren that add to their life’s joys. 

Scott is living proof that with a determined mindset, entrepreneurial and family success is possible.
