Rick has been working in the financial sector for over 18 years, helping clients protect their assets and invest wisely. His success in his financial practice led to an overwhelming desire to educate people about their finances and to give back to his community. Rick is a sought after public speaker and financial education instructor. He is the founder and CEO of the American Financial Education Alliance (AFEA), Legacy First Financial Group (LFFG), and the National Association of Certified Financial Fiduciaries (NACFF). After graduating from high school Mr. McClanahan served 8 years on three different ships in the United States Navy and is a proud veteran of Desert Shield and Desert Storm. While serving our country he worked in the ship's finance department where he got his start assisting other service members with their finances. During his time in the military, he was able to complete his undergraduate studies as well marry and begin raising 3 wonderful children: Jordan, Raven, and Domenic.
Domenic was born at the Naval Medical Center in Portsmouth, VA. Some years later, he and his family moved to Newport Beach, CA, and finally resulted in Charlotte, NC. At a young age, Domenic had discovered he had a profound interest in computers and all things technology related. He was very involved with AFEA in 2013-14 when the organization started to expand as the Chapter Development Specialist and has continued to assist the effort to spread Financial Education. When not at work, Domenic can most likely be found at the movie theatre with friends, fishing at his grandparents’ house or enjoying some Notre Dame football on Saturdays with his father, Rick.
