Robert Doyen, BA (Iowa), started his road to wealth at Bankers Life (now Principal Financial Group) as a pension administrator. As part of his self-education in money management and investing over the past four decades, Doyen became an Enrolled Agent with the Internal Revenue Service and a Registered Representative with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Like many people whose wealth approaches or breaks the seven-figure mark, Doyen lives a comfortable but unostentatious lifestyle--which, in fact, is a key element in building and maintaining financial stability and security.
