John Duckworth, CFP®


My focus and passion is to help our clients strive to get their financial house in perfect order. This is an awesome responsibility and I love the work of putting together, implementing, reviewing, and updating financial plans.

I earned a bachelor’s degree in Accounting and Business Administration from the University of Kansas, a master’s degree in Organizational Communication from Purdue University, and I am a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™. I am a member of the Financial Planning Association and DuPage Estate Planning Council.

I really enjoy listening to audiobooks on the go. Four of my favorite books are:

  • Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity by David Allen.
    • I’m a huge David Allen fan and once I had the opportunity to have a 3 hour 1-on-1 dinner with him!!
  • Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand
  • Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less by Greg McKeown
  • Seasons of Life by Jim Rohn

I’m too busy serving clients and spending time with my wife and 3 kids to learn golf… maybe someday! However, I have coached soccer for all three of my kids via AYSO in Elmhurst. I really enjoy snow skiing and I’m thrilled that my family is becoming more interested and capable in this activity.

Please call me at (630) 541-8827 if you would like to discuss the possibility of working together.
