2017-01-03thewealthguardians“My wife had listened to Doug Ray’s Radio show for about a year when she suggested to me that we needed to talk with this man. We had CD’s, Annuities,Stocks,and Real Estate, scattered everywhere and really didn’t know what we had. I was ready to do something b/c we are quickly approaching our “Golden Years” and didn’t really have any kind of a “Plan.” Our first meeting with Doug lasted well over 2 hours and we just talked and talked and we just learned and learned and got to know each other. We left him with what we thought we owned. A few weeks later, we met a second time and spent another two hours discussing possible options for us. At no time during either of our meetings did Doug make any attempt to sell us anything. He simply educated us on what we needed to know to make an informed decision on options he was giving us. At the third meeting a couple of weeks later, Doug gave us a proposal based on what he had learned about us and our situation. Still, he didn’t say “sign right here” He told us to take the information home, study it and let him know if we had any questions and to set up a meeting with him later when we were ready. Folks, when you’re dealing with someone that’s going to handle your life savings, it takes a while to trust that person. We now know and trust Doug Ray. Doug gained our trust by being “Patient” and not “Pushy” and we have never regretted signing on with him and The Wealth Guardians.” Doug & Gail S., Pilot Mountain, NC

2017-01-04wgira“In the maize of trying to figure out how to secure a stable financial future I had listened to Doug Ray on his WSJS radio program. I made an appointment with him and we discussed my investments and how to secure them and make them grow. Doug listened and made a few suggestions and after taking sometime ( a long time) to think about them, I set up an appointment and Doug was more than happy to sit down again, go over any questions I had. He wanted me to feel secure in my decision making process. I then made the commitment and have not looked back knowing that Doug has and will have my best interest at heart.” Tim G., Pfafftown, NC

2017-01-03wealthguardianstotlogo“After retiring and trusting someone to handle our affairs for us, we realized how harmful and expensive this could be. We were encouraged to use the “buy and hold method” and lost a considerable amount of our retirement. We had heard Doug Ray over the radio and thought what he said made sense. After meeting him and discussing our situation, we realized he wanted to help us learn to help ourselves. By his guidance and his classes, we feel much more aware of what is going on and much more in control of our assets. We appreciate the sincere help he has given us and continue to look to him for advice.” Jon and Carolyn J., Winston-Salem, NC

2017-01-04wgbbb“My 401K had been parked mostly in Money Market for a long time, didn’t lose, but didn’t gain either.Having listened to Doug’s
program on Saturday mornings for a long time, I decided to make an appointment to discuss my retirement situation with him. We slowly walked through the program he thought would fit my situation best.Doug showed me how to obtain guaranteed funds for the future with out any risk to my investment by walking me through the program slowly, all my questions were answered. Don’t know what I would have done without his help. Not only is Doug my Financial Advisor, he is also a new friend to me.” Betty K., Winston-Salem, NC
