LLG Wealth Management has a particular strength in providing financial planning to individuals in blended families or on the path to combining their families. Founder, Michael Martinez, a Certified Financial Planner, being a father and step-father in a blended family himself, understands the challenges and joy that combining two families provides.
Blended families are individuals who live together either as cohabitants or are married, and have children from an existing or previous relationship.

Michael Martinez is the Founder of Live, Learn, Grow Wealth Management, LLC. Michael has worked in the financial services industry for nearly a decade, first in the late 1990’s and then returning to the industry in 2011. He likes to say that the reason he entered the industry is because, “we all need support and I enjoy helping people”.
Michael received a Bachelor of Science in Administration with a Finance Concentration from California State University, San Bernardino. He began his career at a large broker/dealer. While it was certainly valuable experience, Michael believed that the best way to help people enjoy their journey towards achieving their goals was to establish his own Registered Investment Advisory firm which led him to forming Live, Learn, Grow Wealth Management, LLC.

He finds the greatest enjoyment in working with a select group of clients who can utilize his expertise in their lives.
