“For the best in the industry, success is often measured by client satisfaction and in helping people accomplish their long-term financial goals.”

Mike Jette has been a financial consultant with Carroll Financial since 2000. He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee and is a Certified Financial Planner (CFP®). Additionally, he received both his Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU) and Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC) designations from the American College.

For the best in the industry, success is often measured by client satisfaction and in helping people accomplish their long-term financial goals. Mike has taken this basic philosophy of financial planning and asset management to another level. 

“For more than 30 years now I have been having conversations with people about all different facets of their financial lives. These interactions have helped me form a number of convictions about money and about life. Perhaps one of the most compelling of those convictions is this: Your life is not about making money, your money is about making a life.  I want to spend the rest of my working life helping people not only get a good return on investments (ROI) but a great return on life (ROL).”

With a continual commitment to work with those living on less than $3.00 a day in Third World countries, Mike has discovered that the ‘poorest of the poor’ have much in common with the average middle class American. “Everyone needs access to small amounts of capital to survive and thrive. We take our banking and financial systems in this country for granted but they are unique and they are transformational. I have discovered that the ‘poor’ are ‘rich’ in other ways and we have much to gain by entering into relationships with them. We need them and they need us.”

This kind of servant leadership offers an enormous long-term benefit toward building an organization’s social capital while positively impacting the quality of life for communities and the world.

Mike has held numerous leadership roles throughout his career, including: Former President of the Society of Financial Service Professionals – Charlotte Chapter, and former President of Rotary International – Charlotte North Chapter. Mike is also a Rotary International Paul Harris Fellow and former Chairman of the Charlotte Ethics in Business Award. He is a frequent leader for the Crown Financial Small Group Study, Business by the Book and other small group Bible studies. He continues to demonstrate his leadership, ethics and commitment to giving back to various communities and organizations.
