Sal grew up on Long Island, a member of an immigrant family. A lack of financial literacy in his household impressed on Sal the importance of having proper money management skills. This early inspiration has led Sal to expand his knowledge in the financial planning field. Family and friends often call on Sal for financial advice. Sal gets great satisfaction in helping others lessen the anxiety of financial decision making.
