As Founder and President of IFB Financial, LLC, maintaining IFB’s high level of service, integrity, and commitment to excellence are critically important to me in gaining and maintaining the trust placed in IFB by our employees, clients, strategic partners, and vendors.

This trust extends to the professionals I personally recommend, and I will include only those professionals whom I know work with equal levels of integrity and excellence in serving their clients. In addition, I am recommending only professionals that can add value to your lives and businesses through their services.

One of the ways IFB Financial serves you is providing opportunities to reach your income and lifestyle dreams. We have found a new and emerging asset class — cryptocurrencies — more aptly defined crypto-assets — that is literally a once in a lifetime opportunity for the general public that deserves your close attention. Very few people in the world have heard about cryptocurrencies; fewer have invested in this emerging asset class, and even fewer still understand the underlying blockchain technology that underpins cryptocurrencies (crypt-assets) and how this technology is poised to disrupt multiple industries throughout the world.  

We are in the very early stage of adoption, but we are on the path to mass adoption and when that happens this new asset class will soar in value. However, there are many crypto assets that will fail because they are not supported by valid projects that solve real-world problems, which is why you need to learn about this new asset class.

Now is the time to learn about this new technology and potential investment opportunity so you can make an informed opinion on whether investing in this asset class is right for you. My recommendations below are designed to help you understand the blockchain technology and where to safely store your cryptocurrencies (crypto assets). Additional recommendations will be provided to support your blockchain technology journey after I have reviewed them and checked them out for you.

Holistic Nutrition and Certified Personal Trainer

Glowing Free
Lindsey Bogard has a B.S. in Holistic Nutrition, and additional certifications as a Certified Holistic Nutritionist (AFPA) and as a Certified Personal Trainer (ACE). Her company, Glowing Free will help you “find your freedom and get your glow.” The road to health is not an easy one and is a journey. It does not happen overnight, and it is not meant to be walked alone.

Lindsey will support you on your journey to health and wellness and offers Nutritional Counseling and Personal Training. Her personal journey is a testament to her qualifications as she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in August 2012. Subsequently, she began researching alternative methods and nutritional therapies for MS and other autoimmune diseases. She adopted a fully plant-based diet, with a high intake of raw fruits and vegetables and the elimination of gluten.

Lindsey reversed many of her MS symptoms and stop progression of the disease without the use of harmful medications coupled with having more energy than ever before and she can now better tolerate higher temperatures (a huge issue with MS). She can run 7 miles without stopping, hike in the Colorado Rocky Mountains, perform crazy types of exercise, and, most importantly, keep up with my two grandchildren that bound endlessly with energy from the stratosphere.

I have watched Lindsey from the moment of her birth throughout her life’s journey and she has my highest recommendation. She is an accomplished Holistic Nutritionist and Personal Trainer.
