From The Desk of Peter Grandich
“Life is not about wishing for better chapters to manifest in your life; it is about continuously writing them with your thoughts, beliefs, decisions and actions.”
Just about 18 months ago, I made a decision to stop doing what had been my main livelihood since 1995 and instead, focus on a business that had been more of a hobby than anything else. While missing a small part of what had been almost two decades of a way of life, I can say without a shadow of a doubt, my only regret is I didn’t do it years earlier.
While this decision led to having to say good-bye to so many loyal followers north of the border, I’ve been blessed with an abundance of new folks from south of the border (thanks in part to my weekly appearances on the Drew Mariani’s Relative Radio Show. (This past Friday’s show saw me digress from our weekly review of economic matters and instead share parts of my personal journey)
In addition to an expanding profile throughout the continental United States, much of my time is now being spent in my own backyard and throughout the NJ/NY Metro area. In fact, while Peter Grandich & Company shall remained housed within my financial mentor Frank Congilose offices, I am hoping to fulfill a 30-year dream of opening an office in Spring Lake, NJ (A “mancave-type” storefront office for Trinity Financial, Sports & Entertainment Management Company is the vision).
A series of strategic relationships have already been forged in less than 18 months, including:

In addition, we’re currently in discussions to work strategically with
- Large sports medicine group
- One of New Jersey’s most recognized media organizations
- Merging our “Athletes & Business Alliance” with what could become the Linkedin for professional athletes worldwide
