Nicolas (Nic) J. McLeod is a man of determination and grit. No matter if he’s spending time with his wife and kids, creating music, honing his body-building skills, or helping the many families he now calls “friend” find the best ways for them to preserve their wealth and build their retirement savings—he brings a high level of intensity and passion to whatever he’s doing in any given moment.
Nic is a second-generation Wealth Preservation specialist. He grew up watching his dad help families in the community with their financial needs. It impacted him at an early age, and it has now been over forty years since his father first started his practice in 1982. In 2005, Nic decided to launch his own firm and now has helped nearly 1000 families spread across the nation who have entrusted him with their financial wellbeing. Nic’s client base is diverse in both their professional backgrounds & financial needs. No matter who he is working with, his number one job is to protect and preserve their wealth and retirement savings.
Nic proudly owns a record free of any consumer complaints. This is a direct result of the core values at McLeod Consulting Group. As Nic says, “As fiduciaries, our job is to foster a relationship of trust, both legally and ethically. This is what drives us, so our client’s best interests are always first. But we take it to the next level and make sure that all of the work we do is transparent to both our clients and the financial companies we work with. Many of our clients have become like family, and we could not be more thankful for them. We look forward to inviting you to experience how our team can help you successfully navigate the years leading up to your retirement as well as continue to prosper financially, emotionally, and spiritually throughout your retirement years.”
Nic’s relationship with God and his family are at his core. “My daily goal is to be a humble servant. This is what gives me my moral compass and keeps it all together.” Nic’s cherished soulmate is his lovely wife Shayda. Theirs is a true love story, and they bring the same core values to their marriage that they do to all their work. Nic and Shayda have two young and wonderful children who are very active in their school and in sports—following in their father’s footsteps. While the couple spends weekdays working hard to ensure their clients remain financially secure, weekends are packed with sporting events and other family activities.
“Giving my all can make me vulnerable. I care deeply about my clients,” Nic says adamantly.
“It goes far beyond just ‘being about the money.’ Money isn’t what makes the world go ‘round. It’s our relationships and our health, and I find when you give everything you got, that vulnerability can leave you exposed—to the good, the bad, and the ugly. But I’ll take it all if it means that together we create success for you.”
Nic can add “gifted athlete” and “seasoned musician,” to his list of accomplishments. He was a highly touted D1 football prospect, but his aspirations were cut short due to a severe foot injury. He was determined to continue being part of the sport’s world becoming a top bodybuilder, consulting for the University of Arkansas strength coaches, but his passion is helping troubled adolescents and under-privileged youth in his community. As a musician, he has successfully recorded LPs, enjoying quick success on local and national radio as well as sold-out shows in the largest and most well-known regional venues. He studied at the prestigious Musicians Institute in Los Angeles, majoring in Lead Guitar Theory and single-string improv. Music continues to be a major player in his life, as he plays and composes music for his family and personal enjoyment.
Nic’s commitment to making people better and more able at whatever they choose permeates all his work—from volunteering with his community to helping individuals and families secure and preserve their wealth
