Have you ever wondered why some advisors are convicted to implement BRI in their practice? The stories of our BRI Community members often take many twists and turns, all leading up to a call from God to do business a little differently. On this call advisors Mary King, Mark Minnella, and Trina Hanner talk about their financial practice before they discovered BRI, their journey to learn about and implement BRI, and their convictions about investing according to Biblical principles today.
Trina Hanner, Wealth Advisor at Beacon Wealth Consultants, found her passion in business and finance while in high school. She completed several college courses during that time, allowing her to graduate with a B.S. in Accounting from Indiana University after only THREE years. She then began to pursue her dream of coaching others on financial matters as she obtained much-valued experience with three accounting and financial planning firms. In 2002, she opened her own practice, now part of the Beacon Wealth family.Today, Trina advises individuals in the area of biblically based financial planning as an Investment Advisor Representative with Beacon Wealth, a national RIA firm. She holds her Master’s of Science degree in Personal Financial Planning. Additionally, she has fulfilled the rigorous requirements to call herself a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ practitioner, has earned the Master Planner Advanced Studies and Qualified Kingdom Advisor designations. When asked what is most exciting about her career, Trina often says, “When I am speaking with someone about Biblical financial concepts and I see the light come on!” Whether she is working with a group or an individual, she is most passionate about using her years of experience and knowledge to coach others. Trina is focused on glorifying Christ by way of teaching her clients the biblical truths about good stewardship and investing.
