New business spotlight: Miller Financial Strategies

Ryan Miller is banking on his experience in the finance industry to cash in for success with his recently launched business.

Miller Financial Strategies — Raymond James helps individuals, corporations and non-profits with their investments.

“My ideal client is someone who wants to take serious control of their financial future,” he said. “My job is to work with clients and find out what strategies are most appropriate.”

Miller has worked on Wall Street and most recently with Edward Jones as a financial advisor.

But he’s now looking forward to running his own business.

“I would say for me, it is a leap of faith,” Miller, a native of Avis, said.

Miller said he can take back control and better serve his clients as opposed to pushing the products of a big brokerage firm.

The business at 1012 Washington Blvd., Williamsport includes Karen Good, branch manager, and Ty Sheets, administrative assistant.

“I would say the biggest challenge is the administrative side of things,” he said.

He noted the challenges of running a business for the first time.

“The tricky part is I was always an employee of a brokerage firm,” he said. “I never had to worry about making a payroll, paying benefits.”

Miller said he is eager to connect with more clients and particularly enjoys helping plan financial strategies.

He feels Williamsport is a good place for his business.

“I consider this my hometown,” he said. “I am involved in volunteer and civic activities.”
