“Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much” -Helen Keller
At Oxford Financial Partners, teamwork is an essential part to our success. Over the next 6 weeks, we will be publishing a “Meet the Team” series. We thought it would be fun to highlight our team and let you get to know us better.
This week we are featuring Patrick Walsh, Partner and Senior Advisor:
What are your favorite things to do when you are not working?
Spend time with family/friends. Watch/attend sporting events. Play golf.
What keeps you inspired and motivated throughout the day?
Providing for my family, and knowing that the work we do makes the complexity of money simple, while helping clients achieve their goals.
What are you reading right now?
I try and read just about every industry publication that I can. If it’s recreational, it’s usually non-fiction – maybe a book about history or a biography of a sports person I admire.
What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
Not an actual quote, but my parents instilled in me early on that if you work hard, have faith, and treat people/things with respect, you will usually end up in a pretty good spot.
Do you have any pets?
Yes, an 8 year old rescue dog named Bailey. My 4 year old daughter also has two goldfish – “Goldie” and “Bear” (Named after one of her favorite shows).
If you were given a free plane ticket, where would you go and why?
Spain or Italy with my wife. I have been to Europe, but neither of those places, and she has never been to Europe. We will definitely go soon, free ticket or not!
What are the three best movies that you have ever seen?
Pulp Fiction, Schindler’s List, The Dark Knight
If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?
I’m blessed with all that I have, but I’d probably say play a musical instrument. That gene does not run in my family at all, but it would be cool to play guitar, drums, or the piano.
What three traits define you?
I am very competitive/driven, I have a very strong memory, and I strive to connect with all people regardless of the situation – no judgement, no preconceived notions.
