“I never met a Canadian I didn’t like”. This has no bearing on anything, but it makes me laugh! While this is true, it’s more an example of my personality. I have a unique ability to connect with people and derive great pleasure from not only that connection, but when I know myself or my company has had a major positive impact with that person.” —Marc R Kowalski, CFP®
