Get To Know Ed Kelly
I received my Bachelor's degree in English from UCLA and then chose to complete my Master's degree in Special Education. I began my career as a high school teacher, specializing in English and Special Education. After almost 10 years as a teacher, I came to the realization that this career path was not for me. Although being teacher is one of my top three values, I had other values and aspirations that weren't being met within the public school system.

In seeking a profession that encompassed my top three values (teaching, trading ideas, and caring), and was also aligned with my other important values, I discovered financial planning. Over the last 25 years I have built a successful business, and within this profession I have been able to combine my love of teaching with my passion for entrepreneurship and freedom. I am able to educate my clients on how to achieve financial independence and enjoy my own independence as a business owner. About 20 years ago I also began coaching my fellow advisors, and during that time I've had the privilege of helping many hundreds of entrepreneurs increase success in their own financial planning practices.

With my financial planning clients as well as my financial advisor colleagues, I found there were two steps to jumpstarting success. First, they had to figure out what they wanted for themselves. Next, they had to decide on how they were going to get what they wanted. They needed a plan and key activities to carry out their plan. This is the same philosophy I bring to our Summit Journey Coaching students, and it's the same philosophy I use in my own life.

As your coach, I would like to share with you our Summit Journey process and help you increase success in your life. Whether you choose our free Self-Guided Coaching or invest in yourself even more with Personal Coaching, what's most important is that you take the time to figure out what you want for yourself and then go after it with all you've got.
