John C. NeylandFinancial Advisor & President
John was born into a troubled home environment in South Louisiana. With an abusive father and an alcoholic mother, he experienced a hurtful and unloving childhood. At the age of 15, shortly after meeting the love of his life, he developed a severe case of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). From that moment on, John struggled with his family life and the rigors of living with OCD. After years of progressively overcoming his pains, he transformed his life into a monument of love, strength, and success. He is a dedicated husband and father of three. He attributes his successes to having passion, a mission, and a goal. John is dedicated to enabling people to enjoy a life they otherwise would not have.

“The value of our lives is measured by how we leave others in our wake, whether it’s our spouses, our children, or the person down the street,” Neyland says. “Plan on helping someone, somewhere or somehow, on a regular basis. If you do this and do it earnestly, you’ll be surprised at what it does for your own life.”
