Big Lake Chamber of Commerce and Industry welcomed Freedom Strategy Group, Inc. to Big Lake with a double ribbon cutting Tuesday morning. The company of four employees moved in the former NorthStar Chiropractic building between next to McPete’s recently. “It was an exhaustive search to find the right location,” said Founder and President Dan Berckes. “We wanted somewhere to grow and a place full of good people, this was it.”
He also thanks the following for their help: Sheila Zachman of CRS Realty, Spencer Bjerga of Riverwood Bank, and Daniel Flynn of Flynn Custom Homes. “These three were instrumental in making our vision a reality by providing excellent services and introductions to other key persons and local businesses during our transition. We are grateful,” he said. Currently, over 300 clients do business with FSG, who Berckes called is absolute number one priority. Berckes, prior to the cutting of the ribbon cutting, explained what his business is about.
“We help people very differently than most financial services representatives do. Most advisors deal with investment models, risk profiles, and financial products that they sell through brokerages to consumers who want to invest their money,” he said. “A FSG Wealth Strategist does not do this, our focus is not on selling products. Our focus is on a process that changes people’s lives, a proprietary six-step process where we teach our clients the rules to the financial game, so our clients can and will win.” “Winning this financial game is very important to every responsible person who values what they have worked so hard to build.”
He finished his company’s introduction to the chambers on a personal note. “I am thankful to God for continually answering our prayers, to my family for their support and encouragement, to my existing FSG team for their care-filled diligent work and positive attitudes,” he concluded. “We are hopeful and expectant of great things in this community. Please stop in and introduce yourself. We would love to meet other like-minded positive and entrepreneurial people!” Additional information and contacts can be made at freedomstrategygroup.com
