Hello my name is Maurice Wilson
and this is my story.
"Our lives improve only when we take chances - and the first and most difficult risk we can take is to be honest with ourselves."
Maurice Wilson has followed this advice since the day he enrolled at Benedict College after coming to terms with the fact that an ROTC scholarship at Clemson University wasn't right for him.
He attended Benedict for 2 years balancing his time between pursuing a dual degree in physics and engineering, running track, and serving his community as member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Incorporated.
then transferred to Tennessee State University
which enabled him to earn an internship with Rolls-Royce Aerospace.
After graduating, he began working for Daimler Chrysler Automotive in Detroit, MI. During his time in Detroit, he earned a Master's in Mechanical Engineering, but it was at Chrysler where he began to get a real education in the arena of life.
, for the first time in my life I felt as if I was wasting my potential and settling for a paycheck."
Maurice knew engineering wasn't for him, but it wasn't until he began investing in Chrysler's 401(k) plan that he found his true calling - financial planning and investment management.
