Elijah brings a blend of technical expertise, common sense, and a way of communicating things that leaves clients informed and empowered to make wise financial decisions. His commonsense approach and drive to help people make good decisions has brought him many opportunities to speak at Industry events, local organizations, churches and be interviewed on news stations such as WCCO, FOX 9, KARE 11 and KSTP as well as publications like, Yahoo Finance, Fox Business, CNBC, and The Wall Street Journal.
His passion is to help people live great lives and shift their focus beyond financial concerns to the things in life that really matter. An important figure in Elijah‘s life was his grandfather, “Papa“ Joe Kovar, who was a decorated World War II hero and spent his life serving people and giving back to others who were less fortunate. Papa lived his retirement years fully, with purpose and deep care for the people in his life. Elijah learned from him to care for people, to love people and to live a life focused on others, knowing that true wealth is found in the relationships and character we develop throughout our lives.
He has furthered our financial education by being the first member of our team to become an Ed Slott Elite IRA Advisor, specializing in taxation and treatment of IRAs, Roth IRAs, and qualified plans.
