Samantha shifted her career path from being in the Hospitality Industry to joining the Financial Services Industry, and with good intent. After a decade in the Hospitality world, an industry that she truly loved, Samantha realized that she was working a job that was no longer satisfying her desire to create experiences. Recognizing that her mother’s practice had become successful in helping others throughout the duration of their lives, not just for a weekend or a night, Samantha decided that her career path should be one of just that - helping others to protect and prosper in their lives. Samantha joined her mother, Cathy Konner, in her practice to work with professionals uncover financial strategies that help bring confidence, clarity, and wealth building to their futures. Their practice, The Proviser Group, is part of Certified Financial Services (CFS), one of the largest individual financial services firms in New Jersey. CFS has been helping their clients achieve financial success since 1986. With her hospitality background, Samantha is hyper focused on the relationships she makes with her clients and how she can best serve and assist them. After a connection is made, her role becomes that of a trusted and valued financial specialist who is the quarterback of all financial aspects. The goal is to create efficiency and effectiveness while reaching great success and peace of mind to create an exceptional financial lifetime experience.

In 2011, after a bout with a life-threatening illness, George returned to his career at CFS where he has turned his passion for helping students reach their martial arts goals into a passion for helping clients meet their financial goals. He works with a proprietary tool, The Living Balance Sheet®, to comprehensively educate and strategize with his clients on the most beneficial plan for their situations.
Within a year of rejoining CFS, he was selected for the Guardian Leadership Institute. George has also received the Client Builder Award, the Platinum Presidential Citation Award and achieved Leaders Club.
