Behind the Scenes Archive

Even though the Mainspring Wealth Advisors team spends long days together at the office, we enjoy each other’s company outside the office, too. Whether it’s working at a fundraising drive for a charity, taking time out for some continuing education or having fun at a team-building event, the bonds of friendship we forge strengthen our camaraderie and help create the warm, inviting atmosphere our clients enjoy in the office, too.

July 9th-11th was the 3rd Annual Mainspring Wealth Advisors & Pillar Financial Investment Symposium, held at Suncadia Resorts in Cle Elum, WA.

She goes 28 knots at top speed, and is a blue water boat which is hand crafted in Maine to be used off shore -- hence the term blue water boat.

Thank you to Sean O’Driscoll for facilitating our group discussion around values and culture. We often focus on ways to improve what we do and how we do it, so we took the day to refocus on WHY we do it. It’s days like this that will make our firm stronger and our work with clients more impactful. 1/28/16
