Michael Macco - Financial Advisor
I began my career in financial services in 1998 at the recommendation of my high school guidance counselor. While I expressed interest in becoming an auto mechanic (I still like to work on my cars), she suggested I pursue the State of Wisconsin Financial Youth Apprenticeship program. It was good advice. I went on to spend seven years in retail and commercial banking specializing in corporate & municipal cash management. And in 2008, I joined my father, John, at Macco Financial Group, as a financial advisor.
As is often the case, I was not as attuned to my gifts as others. Thank heavens for my guidance counselor! What I have come to understand, however, is how much joy and fulfillment comes with advising others on their financial affairs. You see, it’s not all about money. Money is a proxy for time. And time is how we measure our lives. So, in a very real way, I help people plan for their lives! This puts me smack dab in the middle of some of the most profound, personal and important parts of my clients’ lives. This is an honor that I take very seriously and work tirelessly to earn. As we have come to say in our office, “Everyone deserves to be someone’s best client.”
I have been humbly married to the kindest most gracious woman in the world, Beth, since 2004. Together, we have three children, Hazel, Ethan and Jasper. When I am not in the office, I enjoy CrossFit, singing at my church, tinkering on my cars and slowly restoring our historic 1905 American Foursquare home.
Favorite quote: “The competition for mediocrity is fierce.”
