From time to time, Druid City Living likes to turn the spotlight on some of the local business leaders in our community. This month’s Business Spotlight is squarely on Raymond James Financial Advisor Michael Ford. Our sincere thanks to Mr. Ford for taking the time to answer our pressing questions, and for revealing some incredibly interesting things about himself. It is our hope that everyone in our community will get to know him just a little better.
Here’s wishing all our Druid City Living readers a great week, filled with all kinds of outstanding local events. Get out, get involved, and above all else: Have fun.
Enjoy your week, T-Town.
