After college, Ron formed a financial services marketing firm of which he was President and CEO. Ron's company worked with over 500 financial service representatives throughout the Midwest. Ron sold the company in 1999 and retired for a short time. However, Ron missed the friendships and closeness that he developed with his clients. He felt a void without the vital role that he played in helping them to secure their financial futures.
As a result, Ron couldn’t stay out of the business for long. Continuing his research into investments and financial planning, he refined his ability to formulate lower risk income strategies for long-term goals, including retirement. In 2000, Ron returned to his life's work of guiding people in the area of retirement income Planning founding Davenport Financial Services, Inc.  Ron changed the name of Davenport Financial Services, Inc. to Howard Bailey Financial, Inc., where he retains his position as Chairman of the board. Today Ron manages the Carolina branch of Howard Bailey Financial, Inc. residing in Asheville, North Carolina.
