John Clawson, CFP®

Financial Consultant

As a financial consultant in Winchester, VA, John Clawson's mission is to help you plan and secure your financial future.

In 1979, a young salesman called on an older Missouri businessman.  Born in the early 1900's, the businessman owned an agricultural seed business and grain elevator. 

Over time and many sales calls, the two got to know each other a bit and the older gentleman began to mentor the young salesman on how he handled his money: how to save, how to invest, how to plan for college and retirement.

He passed on to this young man the knowledge of a lifetime of investing skills and personal financial management skills.  The young salesman came to believe that if he learned the lessons and applied them to his family’s financial resources, their lives could be changed for the better and they could have financial freedom. 

John was that young salesman.
