Sidney R. Divine graduated from LaGrange College in 2011. He then pursued his dream to help good people live better lives. By 2014, he had earned the title of Financial Planner and began to work with his clients by helping them optimize cash flow, manage risks, and plan for their investment and retirement needs. In 2015 and 2016, Sidney was nominated for Financial Planner of the year, and in 2017 he proudly earned the award of Financial Planner of the year locally, while being ranked within the top 2 percent of 1,875 planners nationally within the Fortune 500 Financial Firm.
Sidney's belief in education since beginning as a financial planner has seen him earn the Certified Financial Planner (CFP) designation, the Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC) designation, and the Registered Life Planner (RLP) designation from the Kinder Institute of Life Planning. Upon earning the RLP designation, Sidney fully embraced his new role as being a Financial Life Planner. As such, he works with clients to help them align their financial realities with the lives they aspire to live. He does this by engaging in a client-centered process that delivers freedom to clients, namely the freedom to pursue life’s passions, wherever they may lead.
Sidney also believes strongly in serving the community. He has served in numerous roles working with youth in order to empower them to live more inspired lives. Much of this work has taken place on the foundation that sports and athletics can help build confidence and bolster the role of teamwork and citizenship.
No matter your needs, you will find Sidney to be a trusted advisor that educates you, advises you, and helps you bring clarity to your money, and, peace to your life.
SEPTEMBER 27, 2018 Money for retirement won’t magically appear, although thinking it will can be comforting. You might put faith in a get-rich-quick scheme, fantasize a windfall, or trick yourself into believing that saving will get easier later.
