My name is Max Potosme and I want to thank you for taking the time off of your busy schedule to get to know a bit about me.
As a Floridian, I grew up in a family of four down in West Palm Beach, Florida. My parents were extremely hardworking people and I like to believe that’s where I learned my work ethic. After graduating from John I. Leonard High School, I studied higher education at Palm Beach State University then transferred to Florida International University where I developed my love for investing. I was part of the board of FIU’s Financial Management Association where we learned how to fine tune our financial skills.
After graduating, I became a stockbroker in downtown Miami with a high-energy office with brokers speaking so loud it’s hard to hear who you’re talking to on the other line; not as glamorous as movies portray! Miami is a beautiful city with great food and it’s where I met my wife, Pam, after transferring firms early on in my career.
We love to travel and enjoy anything outdoors like camping, hiking, biking, and sightseeing, to name a few. This love for the outdoors is what brought us to Colorado where we now live near the foothills with our daughter, Blake, and two dogs who frequently get to enjoy hikes.
Having been an advisor for over a decade, my passion continues to be to help people invest, calm their financial uncertainties and plan for their future. Often, people plan longer for a major vacation than they do for their retirement and I’m here to show them it’s not as difficult as it seems.
