Thomas M. Dowling CFA, CFP®, CIMA®
Aegis Planning

What services does your business offer?
Financial and wealth planning.

What is your motto in life?
“It’s better to be interested than interesting.”

What are you passionate about? What makes your eyes light up with excitement when you talk about it?
Youth sports. I believe it helps develop life skills that will be valuable and utilized throughout their lifetime. How do you deal with success? More importantly, how do you deal with failure? How do you work together as a group yet standout as an individual?

To what do you attribute your success?
Honesty and integrity are always essential, but discipline and persistence are very underrated qualities. The ability to have the discipline to be persistent in sticking to your plan even when you have many distractions, in my opinion, has been a key component to my success.

How do you personally define business success?
In my opinion, the definition of success is very personal, and success is a moving target. If you were to ask me that question 15 years ago, the answer would be different than it is today. As of today, my definition of success is accomplishing the goals that I set for my business and, at the same time, spending the maximum amount of time with my family—especially now, while my kids are still young enough to want me around.
