Planning for the future

By DEREK LOPEZ

Steven Hays began working as a Financial Adviser for Edward Jones in Littlefield last July.

“Being a financial Adviser is always something I have always been interested in,” Hays explained. “I have been a client of Jones for about 18 years and through that, I didn’t come to work for them sooner because I didn’t want to do the doorknocking process. I didn’t want to be the person – these days the vacuum cleaner salesman or the alarm salesman – so I put it off for a while.”

Hays earned his degree from Texas Tech University in economics.
