I started in financial services as an insurance agent in 1975. I sold health insurance to friends and neighbors and referrals. It soon evolved into a more professional financial practice with credentials such as Chartered Life Underwriter, or CLU, and later as a Chartered Financial Consultant or ChFC.
Today, I own Florida Wealth Advisors, LLC, until recently a Florida Registered Investment Adviser firm. Today my focus is helping people grow and preserve their money. I work closely with other financial professionals in North Central Florida. I've been part of the fabric of Gainesville, Florida for over 55 years, having arrived as a freshman at the University of Florida in 1959. I've been involved with countless organizations and efforts since my graduation in 1963.
You can find me on the web at tonykendzior.com or if you prefer to spell it out, floridawealthadvisors.com. You will see a tab called About... where you'll find a more detailed biography. My goal is to continue working as long as I can; I enjoy the activity and my clients tell me I'm good at what I do.
In the past 4+ years I've posted over 1200 blog posts from which you can discern who I am, how I think, and what I consider important to those who respect what I do both personally and professionally.
