Bill Bessette Headshot

What is your name?  Bill Bessette

What’s your current job?  Financial Advisor

What do you love most about it?  I love being able to help people plan for their future.  There’s a lot of uncertainty in the financial world today and it’s important for people to be comfortable with what they have and know why they own it.  As a registered  “Investment Advisor Representative”  I am a Fiduciary — one who must put their clients interests before his own. I work every day to do the best for my clients.

How long have you been a member of Cape Space and what do you like most about it thus far?  5 months  —  I love meeting the other members and being a member allows me the flexibility to be more efficient in my practice.  I love the positive feedback I am getting from clients who have already visited with me at CapeSpace.

You are also a CapeSpace Affinity Program Vendor. Why don’t you tell us a little about that and your offer?  Offer a 1 hour complimentary review

When not working, what do you like to do?  Follow sports; work in the yard; help my wife with her Nantucket Basket business; spend time with my family and my dog Cooper.

Guilty Pleasure: What can you not live without? I don’t have a sweet tooth, but I love ice cream

Favorite Movie?  Shawshank Redemption

Favorite Book?  John Adams  by David McCullough

Favorite TV Show?  Any historical fiction — such as Black Sails, Hell on Wheels and Boardwalk Empire

What is one thing that you would like people to know about you? I grew up in a large family, being the oldest of 9 children.  I saw how raising a family can be a struggle at times, but it made me appreciate that hard work and the values that my parents instilled in us can overcome those challenges.
