Missed Fortune is a financial system born out of the personal experiences of Douglas Andrew. Three decades ago, Andrew was achieving success when a series of unfortunate events led to the loss of his home and threatened his dreams of a secure future for his growing family. Douglas Andrew faced his fears and began to explore ways to restore and stabilize his income and create a financial foundation upon which to build for the future.
Douglas Andrew taught these ideas to his own family who quickly put them to good use. Today, Douglas Andrew heads Paramount Financial Services with his two sons, both of whom became millionaires in their own right by applying their father’s methods and techniques.
