Chad Armstrong came to Ashford Advisors in 2022 after a 14-year career as an infantryman in the Georgia Army National Guard, also after being deployed to both Iraq and Afghanistan. From a young age, after being raised in a low-income household, and seeing firsthand what the 2008 recession did to his father’s family business, Chad aspires to help his family reach financial freedom. Today, he looks forward to helping other people become financially confident and taking control of their financial lives.
Born and raised in Dahlonega, Georgia, Chad and his wife, Mary Armstrong, a CPA in Atlanta currently live in Cumming, Georgia. His wife is a huge influencer in his life and one who encouraged him to venture into a career as a financial professional. They met through kickboxing and were married 2/14/2018, Valentine’s Day.
In his spare time, as a former WKA Junior kickboxing champion (2004), and his wife as a 4-time world amateur champion, they continue to enjoy kickboxing. They also love traveling to sporting events in Chicago and New York, hiking, riding motorcycles and four-wheelers and staying fit by working out together.
Chad strongly supports the quote, “they’ll tell you failure is not an option. That is ridiculous, failure is always an option. Failure is always the most readily available option. But it's a choice. You can choose to fail, or you can choose to succeed.”
