Those Who Serve Others Derive Significant Benefits
Alan Pratt grew up in the Seattle, Washington area. While living in a wonderful, loving home, his family were not believers. Alan did not come to have a relationship with Christ until he was 37 years old. After spending most of his career working for the U.S. Treasury Department and then in the banking industry, God began to wrestle with him. Alan was stripped of his financial security and forced to rely solely on God’s provision.
Alan opened his own advisory company that enables his clients to protect their wealth while helping others at the same time. His philosophy is: “What can I give away today? Whether it be time, money, or advice, giving is always better than receiving.”
In today’s episode, you will hear from a man who is truly a servant leader. He gives whatever and whenever he can and helps others to do the same. His motto is to never say no to any opportunity, no matter what it may be.
“We tend to think about circumstances more than we should.” – Alan Pratt
