SeekingAlpha is not and should never be Buzzfeed. Quality over quantity.
I am an experienced businessman and entrepreneur from an early age. My trajectory went from hauling wheeled carts of printer parts, equipment thru the city streets in Philly to executive, managerial roles in the financial industry'. My Start in the Financial world was Oct. 5th 1998. I've always been told, and have been a 'thought leader' within my circles. From alley ball disputes to seriously impactful business situations the same skills apply. Executive Corporate Business Development, Strategic Relationships, Sales & Service Teams. Implementing policies to achieve Synergie and break down Siloes. I am 'Particularly' well rounded within the financial sector, from the phones straight up to roles including the most challenging compliance and legal topics. Degreed within the 'Media Tech' Complex, or 'B&C;Communications, Media, Telco' with a Business Minor specifically focused within 'Communications' sectors.

Every day I'm reminded of this world filled with people who only want to live a good life. Close your eyes and open your mind !!
Family runs a 60 year old TPA. In 8th grade; reconciling Pension Plans as a side job was 'normal'. A TPA provides navigation theunthe maxe of IRS and DOL Regs. It's about advising other pros about the most detailed methodologies, guidance & administration for their clients 401k or retirement plan documents. Pension Administration & Record Keeping Services. Our firm has thrived/survived as an 85% consolidation within the industry has tripled to quadrupled proving & dominates headlines about fees; we charge 1/3- 1/2 as a small, lean & nimble SMB. Per Example; Ascensus, Paychecks or ADP will charge per minute like a legal firm. We do not, will not and offer a true value. Such large 'Compounded' savings over 20 years will replace $hundreds of thousands$ lost in fees - back into ones retirement account. That's meaningful, allowing our clients an opportunity to live a better life. Just because they are not losing it to fees.
We focus in person & work nationwide. Other TPA firms and related professionals send us work ao,they can focus on selling. The advanced consulting offered to smaller Busines Owners; from doctors to attorneys, landscapers and non profits, certainly influence my well rounded & educated views of markets. Why? We are a non producing TPA; meaning Advisors seek us out as their TPA of choice. Trust GP Inc to provide best implementation of DOL/IRS mandates for plan design templates. Meaning, they will have more time and resources to seek out more business partners. Come audit time; SMB resources are limited. We will advise them correctly, ethically and to the letters of law. We can be and are often present during the 'long sales process' to explain these always changing IRS and DOL rules; yet we do not pick investment options. The owner/FA does. No conflicts at all. Our level of participation is up to the Biz owner & FA, Attorneys choice. You cannot do this at the larger firms. They offer what they offer and charge what they charge. Period.
