In this episode, Luis talks to Walter Brown, a financial advisor at WestPac Wealth Partners based out of their Las Vegas office. He was born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts, achieving success as a basketball player at an early age, and eventually securing a basketball scholarship to Boston University. His continued athletic success led him to a 13-year professional career, spanning three countries (France, Switzerland and Japan) and four teams.

Walter brings this same level of passion and discipline into the relationships he builds with his financial planning clients in order to help them in their financial journeys.
