In this 3-minute clip, Tony Martin addresses financial planners at the national Valmark Member Summit.


Tony and Todd Martin are business financial advisors who educate, motivate, and empower Business Owners and Professional Advisors about issues, trends and solutions impacting the financial success of closely-held companies.

Understanding that the needs of Business Owners often involve highly complex planning arrangements, the Martins colorfully communicate the complex while helping Business Owners and their Advisors connect with the deeper purpose and emotion behind a Business Owner’s decisions about the business’s financial health.

Tony and Todd are passionate speakers who speak regularly to groups of Business Owners as well as tax, legal, accounting, and other professional colleagues. Several of their sessions are accredited for CLE and CPE continuing education credits.

If you are interested in booking Tony and Todd as speakers for an upcoming meeting, event, or audience—or if you want them to conduct a customized, private session for your colleagues or clients—please call or email Gretchen Speerstra at: 912-352-9644 /
