Scott Eckart is the Owner and Lead Advisor at West Point Financial Group. His passion for connecting with people is what makes him such a natural at helping people design the life they aspire to live. His thorough process helps to provide a path for his clients to take their vision of the future and translate it into a blueprint that can be implemented in an organized and systematic fashion.
“I love seeing people make progress toward their goals,” says Scott. Scott draws on years of experience as a business consultant to help people better articulate their goals and take the necessary steps to accomplish them. His practice focuses on the needs of closely held business owners and pre-retirees, helping those clients to proactively take control of their personal, legacy, tax and gift resources.
In addition, Scott volunteers his knowledge of personal finance to provide financial literacy education to children and young adults. Having benefited from strong mentors and role models in his formative years, Scott works to pay their gift forward by acting as an advisor and instructor to others.
Outside of work he is an avid reader and outdoor enthusiast. On many weekends Scott can be found tending to his garden. He and his wife, Elsa, reside in Zionsville, Indiana, and enjoy spending time with their children, granddaughter and grandson.
In this fun and insightful episode, Scott talks about becoming an accidental entrepreneur, financial planning, leading by influence, getting your hands dirty, the reason behind the answer to what his super power would be, embracing change, accountability, the power of friendship, and a moment while going through a business divorce that he realized that life is a classroom.
