Since the beginnings of his lawn mowing days, Chad has seen the benefit from bringing value to people.  Even though he didn't completely know what he wanted to do in college, he happened to visit the Merrill Lynch booth and realized that helping people with their finances spoke to him.

Fast forward to years later, he started Pacific Capital, a firm in So Cal specifically focused on helping entrepreneurs and families with financial decisions.  He further went on with a group of people to create the Draft Sports Complex, a 75,000 sq ft arena used for basketball, volleyball, cheerleading, and stunts tournaments.  And then Covid hit.  And with that blow, when all games were suddenly cancelled, after sleepless nights, they've turned the facility into a charter school for kids whose parents are essential workers.  Incredibly story right there.  Enjoy!
