Having a Retirement Plan

Real Retirement Plans Put You In Control

I’m shocked more advisors don’t help their clients with comprehensive retirement planning. 


Too many just “manage your money”, simply investing your assets and then talking to you about “the markets”, obscure investment strategies and economic data that the market has already considered.


The real problem with these advisors is in what they don’t do  


  • They don’t inspire retirement confidence
  • They don’t work with you to create a comprehensive and optimized plan
  • They don’t have a process for creating reliable retirement income
  • They don’t work with you to maximize your money in the context of social security and the tax code
  • They don’t understand what’s truly important to you or make an effort to


A quality financial planner/advisor should give you an overwhelming sense of control about your retirement.


You want a planner/advisor that:

  • Helps you create a confident retirement plan so you can worry less
  • Uses planning strategies that maximize what your money/Social Security can do for you
  • Avoids tax/investment mistakes so many others have made before you
  • Frees up your time to enjoy what matters most to you
  • Understands what’s important to you and helps you make it happen


A quality CFP® /CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ will help you get to where you want to go.

Advice and perspective for the soon-to-be-retiree

Creating a retirement plan requires making some complicated decisions about our financial lives.

But complicated doesn’t have to mean confusing

My goal is to break down key decisions and concepts, frame them in the context of your retirement, and help you make smart, confident decisions about your retirement.

Because you only retire once.
