Create the Life You Want

Michael Bryant Lindberg
Wealth Management Advisor

Enjoying family life and having the time to volunteer often seems at odds with career success, but Mike Lindberg, a financial representative with the Oak Brook district office, will tell you it can be done.  

The Wheaton native has always valued his family roots. As a student he chose to stay nearby and attend Wheaton College where he was a cornerback on the football team. Upon graduation he began a career in banking entering JPMorgan Chase's in-store management training program. After heading in the direction of management, he realized that spending time with his clients and building long lasting relationships with them is really what he wanted to spend his career doing. He made the decision to find his passion and change careers.

Since joining the firm in 2007, he has been provided the tools, resources and training to help him discover and build his markets. He acknowledges the first 3 to 5 years can be tough, but when you have found your true passion in your work life there is nothing that will stop you from developing a successful practice as a financial representative.

Today Mike has achieved that work-life balance that is important to him. He values his clients and the opportunity to identify their definition of financial security and then focus on solutions that can help make those financial goals a reality. Just as important, Mike is enjoying spending time with his growing family, and still finds time to participate in athletic competition with friends and serve his church community as a Deacon.

Mike Lindberg's definition of success: to live life without regrets, to serve his family, community and clients on a daily basis to the best of his ability. It is Mike's hard work and determination that propel him in this pursuit.
