The mix of the right ingredients can become a masterpiece, even if the ingredients themselves seem a bit of out place on their own. In a way that sums up a lot of Caleb’s story and the foundation of Tapestry. His passion is to meet people where they are on their financial journey, wherever it may be, and help them translate scattered problems into an inspired masterpiece that they can be proud of.
From his roots in a family farm, starting a remodeling business, an undergrad degree from Kansas State University in Sports Broadcasting, and a Masters Degree in Sports Management from Wichita State University, Caleb’s journey has evolved into where it is today. Add in a wife (Jami) and two kids (Jackson and Olivia), Caleb has flourished in his passion of helping others understand their financial journey whether as a business owner, a professional, or a family.
Holding the designation of Certified Family Business Specialist, Caleb can better understand the dynamics that happen first in business and then adding on the layer of family and generational wealth. He loves seeing hardworking families be able to pass on, not just their wealth, but the core values that are behind that wealth. Along with making sure that the IRS is not their favorite charity!
Doing all this in between his weekends of smoking meats and cheering on the Philadelphia Eagles is all the makings of Caleb’s masterpiece.
While Cooper may not seem as in touch with his emotions on the surface, the Olympic Games and the “triumphs of human achievement” that accompany the events bring him to tears more often than chopping onions (FYI-he chops onions less than once every 4 years).
Always game to grab a meal or a cup of coffee with his clients, Cooper would prefer every meal be served at Cracker Barrel (where he celebrated his 29th birthday) and every plate be covered with French Toast. He claims, “The true quality of a breakfast location is measured in French Toast. You don’t know what you’re getting otherwise.”
His palate may be closer to the preferences of his three children than his wife’s, but the balance of his curiosity for new things and likeness towards beige meal plans has complemented how Cooper is able to guide his clients through the ups and downs of planning for their financial future.
There’s not one person that Cooper doesn’t find fascinating. Whether it’s how they think about money, what hobbies they have, or what wakes them up every day—it all adds to the framework of how he introduces financial strategies so his clients can affect the world for change.
The Olympics may be a sporting event that brings out all Coop’s feels, but he maintains that Rodeos are the most entertaining sporting events in the world. If he could do it all again, a rodeo clown would have been the chosen profession. But for now he plans to keep finances entertaining to everyone he meets.
