More About Timothy Fitzwilliams
Timothy Fitzwilliams started Fitzwilliams Financial with a life reassessment. One day, Timothy was discussing the topic of “jobs versus careers” with a friend and the conversation hit deep with Timothy. Timothy realized he wanted more out of life. Timothy Fitzwilliams wanted to help people. Timothy, at that time with an Economics background, understood the financial market more than the average person. This deep understanding was coupled with the devastating realizations of his father’s medical problems. The lack of sufficient insurance coverage from his military retirement caused enough of a financial burden, alone. The emotional strain of a serious family medical situation compiled the situation and Timothy realized many other families face similar situations every day.
Timothy Fitzwilliams’ fire was fueled by his personal family tragedy, as he realized that so many other people were in similar situations as his father. He also knew, from this personal experience, most people do not realize that their life insurance is not sufficient until it is too late. At first, the road to build Fitzwilliams Financial to what it is today was hard and bumpy. Timothy’s car was repossessed just three weeks into the business but that did not stop Timothy. Corrine Fitzwilliams, Timothy’s girlfriend from the very beginning, and now his beloved wife, stuck by Timothy’s side every step of the way.
Corrine would drive with Timothy out on his rounds for fresh market leads and to help hundreds of families. Timothy and Corrine would not return home many nights until very late. Their only drive to push so hard the next day was from God’s blessing and the emotional rush of helping their clients. Often people would thank Timothy and sometimes they would cry. Timothy Fitzwilliams diligently met with his clients through the years to make sure they stayed on the right financial track. He wanted them to be in a comfortable financial situation, so they would not have to worry about their future finances and could spend quality time with their families.
Timothy’s passion to help people is quite gratifying, as he has gotten to watch his clients grow into the plans they have built. His passion for helping people like his father allowed him to quickly become a top financial professional.
Directly From Timothy Fitzwiliams
Through the years, we have watched your children grow and sadly we have been there for when the older clients pass. We have watched strategies our clients have implemented get handed to loved ones to help them get through the tough times. At Fitzwilliams Financial, headquartered in Chesapeake, Virginia, we always put family first. We understand how hard it is to work all your life and still not be sure about if your finances will take care of you and your family during your retirement years.
Throughout the course, I always made sure my family was set on the same amazing financial plans I suggested to my clients. I knew I could never suggest to someone something I would not utilize. We want to do the same for all the families and businesses out there in our communities.
We have been so blessed, as the business has more than doubled in size within just a few years. Fitzwiliams Financial has grown from Corrine and I working out of our small condominium bedroom, and the trunk of a car, to the Hampton Roads brick and mortar company it is today.
Today, through the help of our referral partners, clients and marketing campaigns, we are hosting several dinner seminars every month. Each Virginia Beach seminar provides 20 to 40 attendees crucial financial information at a few amazing local steakhouse restaurants. One of the restaurants is the same location where Corrine and I had our wedding rehearsal dinner.
When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my wife and son. I also enjoy participating with my church, The Carpenter’s House, in Virginia Beach, as I have known my pastor for over thirty years. As I write this, my son, Timothy Fitzwilliams Jr. is four years old now, and he has greatly added to my drive to achieve greater things. I cannot wait to get Timothy involved in sports and the Boy Scouts. Besides having my family, this career is the most rewarding thing I have ever done. Fitzwilliams Financial has been a huge blessing, and I never thought I would be where I am today. This experience has truly changed my life. A special thank you to my wife, Corrine and Timothy. I love you both very much!
To all my clients, thank you for allowing me to help you achieve the retirement of your dreams. Your success fuels my drive to help families throughout Hampton Roads, Virginia and all across the nation. Most of all, I must thank God for always being in my life and providing me my talent. It is truly a blessing to be able to speak at seminars and educate families about financial strategies.
