Honor, Courage and Commitment – core values of the Marine Corps and the pillars of our business.
When I made my first investment in 1995, I became passionate about investing. I overcame the uncertainty and anxiety of this new venture by educating myself, forming a plan, and maintaining discipline. This approach has served me well, and I knew it could benefit others. When Bryan invited me to join his firm, I jumped at the opportunity. I knew that our mutual experience in the Marine Corps meant I’d be working with a team that had absolute integrity and a dedication to service.
Service has always been and continues to be an integral part of my life. I have been a Marine for more than 23 years and continue to serve in the Marine Corps Reserves. , I have earned multiple distinctions, which include the Purple Heart, Meritorious Service Medal, and Navy Commendation Medal as well as Series Honor Man.
I also serve my community, as a City Councilman (4th term) and Mayor Pro Tem for the City of Sanger, Texas; as a committee member of the Sanger Education Foundation; and as a Charter Member of the Marine Corps League Detachment 1300. I have a Bachelor of Science in Public Administration from the University of North Texas and am a Distinguished Graduate of the USMC Command and Staff College. I believe my work within and for the community allows me to see the world through others’ eyes, which in turn helps me to assist people to create financial plans that suit their individual lives. I enjoy the fact that no two plans are ever the same. Whether it is young people making their very first investment or people at the end of their working career, I find true satisfaction in helping others achieve their goals and dreams.
Off–hours, I enjoy hunting and fishing; playing baseball, basketball, and football with my sons; and traveling with my wife.

December 28, 2019 – Wealth Strategy with Bryan Rigg, Your Wealth Professor
Today, we’re going to talk about three different things. We’ll start the show with what people should do at the end of the year in regards to their finances. Bryan gives some tips on how to hold yourself more accountable to meet the deadline so you can just think about the family and not finances over the holidays. But Bryan will also give advice on what to do if the deadline has passed.
Then, Barbara Freeman joins the show once again to discuss her nonprofit organization, Freeman House (Freemanhouse.org). Freeman House has been serving the Dallas/Fort Worth area by providing transitional housing for men and women who are coming out of incarceration, recovering from addictions, and escaping homelessness since 2006. A house manager also joins the show to give her testimony to the nonprofit organization and the services they provide.
We’re going to close out the show with Bryan introducing his most recent book “Flamethrower”, which is now available on Amazon.com. According to some historians that proofread the book, “Flamethrower” is the most definitive work on an enlisted marine’s life during World War II.
