  1. Hi Keenan, hope you are doing well. Just wanted to connect with you and see how we can help each other in business. I was previously working in the industry as a dually licensed financial adviser, now I develop tools to help people become more confident in their personal finance and communication skills.
    How about we meet up in the next week or so? I am in the downtown core, do you want to meet downtown or meet somewhere closer to you?
