After many years of coaching others in the workplace, Parkey Thompson decided to follow his passions and focus on providing personal financial coaching, strategic planning and direction setting to individuals, families, religious organizations and small businesses by starting Financial Focus.
Throughout his personal and professional life, Parkey has experienced first-hand and overcome many of the challenges he now helps others navigate on a daily basis. For over twenty years, Parkey held various leadership positions across multiple companies, including companies such as General Electric and IBM. In 2005, he thoughtfully decided to use his leadership skills to help others significantly improve their own personal finance, career, life, and business financial situations.
Parkey is a certified financial counselor, compassionately helping his clients navigate through challenging financial and life decisions on a daily basis . He is a Sunday School teacher, volunteer and has served on several boards / committees. He enjoys passionately motivating and helping families, individuals, businesses, and churches envision and achieve their dreams. In addition to Financial Focus, Parkey is a contributing financial writer to local magazines and newsletters, as well as a former frequent guest on “Mornings” with Lorri Allen and Larry Estepa on the FamilyNet TV and radio network. Today, you may even hear him on the radio somewhere across America as the Intentional Money Coach on “Intentional Living” with Dr. Randy Carlson.
More than anything, Parkey and his family live what he teaches others. Parkey and his family are debt free and live without credit cards and on a plan!
Parkey and his wife, Lisa, live in Cumming, Georgia with their three children – Kayla (and husband Micah), Morgan(Ryan) and Micah. In 2017, they welcomed their first grand-child, Chandler Rae.
