In 2007, 1,100 new financial advisers joined the ranks at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney. Today, Meron Yemane is one of only 100 of those advisers still with the company.

Yemane is a key member of the company's five-person Rockville Bridge Group, which manages more than $500 million for 1,600 households. As a representative of professional athletes and entertainers, a niche he began, Yemane personally represents players and agents in the NFL.

He also spends about 40 hours a week volunteering as president of Harrisburg Young Professionals, and serves on the board of directors for four other nonprofit organizations in the area. Additionally, he's a founding member of The Hill Society, a club created to facilitate the exchange of ideas and information by local business and government leaders.

Spending more than a full-time job's worth of time on volunteer work seems to align well with Yemane's view on finding a balance between work and life. "Balance is overrated," he said. "Do everything to the fullest."

What movie resonates with your life? I have always enjoyed "Coming to America" with Eddie Murphy, who plays an African prince. My parents are from Eritrea, Africa, and in school classmates jokingly called me "Coming to America."
