Leaving a Legacy – “Lessons from Dan”

Contributed by: Sandra Adams, CFP® Sandy Adams

A new year has begun and it feels a bit different at The Center.  Dan Boyce, the last of our founding partners, has now retired and is off to start his life of new adventures. While he will not be physically be with us on a regular basis, he leaves behind a legacy of lessons that will live within all of us for the rest of our lives.

Dan was, without even trying, a mentor to us all. He taught us to be better – personally and professionally.  He taught us to develop the vision that created The Center – something that started as a business, but has turned into much more for our employees and for our clients alike. He taught us to be better people – for ourselves, for our families, for our co-workers, and for our clients. He taught us to believe in ourselves and to be the best that we could possibly be; to never stop growing and to never stop pursuing greatness.  He taught us never-ending gratitude and kindness – he exemplified this with his words AND actions.  He was the ultimate example of honesty and integrity – values The Center is built on.  And last, but not least, Dan led by example in his quest to live his plan – something he is on his way to doing now!
