Meet the Team Blog: Kevin Fix

For this month's "Meet the Team" blog, we caught up with Senior Financial Advisor, Kevin Fix. Kevin started with Fullen Financial in 2018 and has been a financial advisor since 2011.

 

  1. What led you to want to become a financial advisor?
    • I spent the early part of my career working in accounting and finance, mostly in the telecom industry. I got to the point where relocations, mergers and unfulfilling work led me to consider doing something else. Financial advice enabled me to use my planning and investing expertise in a truly meaningful way. It's a challenging line of work but one that is very gratifying.

 

  1. If you could travel anywhere tomorrow, where would you go?
    • I would go to Berlin because my daughter is studying there right now and I'd love to visit her. Berlin is a fascinating city and now that she has been there for a couple months, I'm sure she would be a great tour guide!
  2. What was your childhood dream job?
    • This one is easy…I wanted to be an astronaut. I was in kindergarten when astronauts last went to the moon and I vaguely remember watching the coverage on TV. Space suits, rocket ships, seeing the Earth from space; what could be cooler than that?
  3. What is your favorite part of the work day?
    • My favorite part of the workday is meeting with clients. It's always great to catch up with people, most of whom we only see once a year, and we are blessed to have a great group of clients. Every client has challenges to overcome and not every conversation is easy, but it's great to walk with them on that financial journey.
  4. When you are not working, what do you like to do for fun?
    • There are lots of things I like to do for fun but one of my favorites is going to see live music. Whether it's a big arena, a small club or the lawn at a music festival, I love the energy and the creativity, and it's a great way to spend time with friends. I also took up rowing a few years ago after my daughter joined her high school rowing team. It's a lot of fun and a really good workout.
  5. If you could live anywhere, where would it be and why?
    • Actually I'm pretty happy being in Columbus right now. This is becoming one of the best places to be in the Midwest, with the amenities of a big city, but still a very manageable place to live. If I were to leave Columbus, I'd probably move to the mountains out west, where there is more to do outside and more sunshine in the winter.
