Parkey’s One Idea
Parkey and his wife were in a crisis mode when he lost his job. In that time they learned that they could live differently. He found that others were living paycheck to paycheck and wanted to help them and tell them what they were doing that was working for them.
His business, Financial Focus, is financial coaching. Through an analysis of someone’s financial situation, whether an individual, a couple, a small family or a small business, they will look at where you’re at, where you can be and what you could be doing.
To connect with Parkey Thompson:
♦ Something has to change. You have to change what you are doing to get different results. Until we do that we won’t be successful. The step to making change is understanding where you’re at and feeling the need to make a change.
