Success can be defined in many different ways. For some it is the security of a retirement plan. For others it is the joy of building up a business. For many it is having time to spend with family. Sometimes, it is a combination of these and more. My definition of success at Kline & Co. and in life is understanding what others need and helping them succeed.
