Investment Advisor/CEO

Triplett Financial Group clients have a “deal with it now” attitude. That’s why they are attracted to the planning process developed by Triplett Financial Group’s founder and CEO Mark Triplett. The step-by-step process guides them through the assessment of their current condition, helps them identify potential cracks, encourages them to be accountable, and empowers them to take corrective action.   

Mark developed his own “deal with it now” attitude when diagnosed with thyroid cancer at age 15. “When you get that news, things that were important the day before suddenly seem trivial. You don’t have time to waste, pretending nothing is wrong or asking “why me.”  You and your team of professionals get busy assessing the situation, weighing the risks and benefits of intervention and taking corrective action to deal with the situation.” 

Mark believes this same approach applies to retirement income planning. If you are going to have problems in the future, it’s best to know now and deal with it than to pretend nothing is wrong and wait until its too late.

He was a business owner at heart from the beginning. At 12 Chad bought 30 head of feeder pigs on his father’s farm. Over the next 5 years he did it again several times over. When his fathers farm was put up for sale, and his father was forced to find a laborer position it light the fire for Chad.
