Michael Shelton, RFC
Registered financial consultant
Owner, President / CEO
Michael is a passionate Consultant focused on ensuring all the families and businesses he works to protect their assets with smart, educated, and long-term strategies. He’s not only well versed in current tax law and associated wise accounting procedures, but also is a respected Registered Financial Consultant.
He believes asset accumulation is best done in tandem with big-picture tax planning strategies. Of course, everything you do with your money affects your overall financial security, which is why he’s also dedicated himself to finding the best ancillary providers in the Roanoke area to refer clients to as they need support in areas beyond his expertise. This includes legal, insurance, lending, marketing, and more. He’s built a loose team of professionals who believe in offering excellence and communicate as appropriate when developing comprehensive planning strategies that make sense for the short and long term.
Michael was a top Consultant, winning multiple awards, at a national financial services company before he founded 360 Financial Solutions and 360 Tax Solutions. He expanded from financial planning to comprehensive tax, bookkeeping, and accounting services for individuals and business owners after realizing his clients needed a better solution than they could find in the area for documentation and reporting of income and expenses. Tax minimization strategies didn’t seem to be something most other providers offered.
Michael is an Iraqi Freedom War Veteran who was selected as the Roanoke Small Business Veteran of the Year in 2017. He’s a Dave Ramsey ELP. As President of the Brambleton Area Business Association, he’s brought this organization from obscurity to community stalwart with community leaders in economic development, law enforcement, and business owners viewing the monthly meetings as must-attend events. In his spare time, he watches and plays sports, cooks, and enjoys his family, including a loving wife and young daughter.
