Both faith and finances require a disciplined approach. Roy Carlson, president of Carlson Financial Services, gets up early every day and goes to the office and spends time with God before welcoming clients into his working day. He wraps up that work day in time to be home with his family every night for dinner. Roy believes that these kinds of faithful practices sustain both his faith and his financial planning practice. Roy seeks to facilitate his clients to follow the example of the servants from the Gospel parable of the talents, who use the money their master has entrusted them and work to earn more. Roy is also the author with his wife Vivian of the book The Faithful Steward, which explains his model of playful investment for a wider audience.
