A saying becomes a classic when it rings true over time. For example: The apple (that would be our Ann) doesn’t fall far from the tree (that would be her dad).“Yes, my father was a financial advisor with his own firm. Part of growing up was learning the value of money – working for it and managing it. To earn my allowance, I vacuumed his office on weekends. Of course, a portion of that allowance was ‘expected’ to go into savings. I have never forgotten those lessons. And it makes me happy that I made him proud by becoming part of Abacus.” Admittedly, the apple did go a bit off course before finally landing in familiar surroundings. After college Ann moved to Washington, D.C. where she built an impressive ten-plus-year career. (Yes, that includes knowing her way around White House events.)
