Our Story

Being just like any other advisor was never an option for me because people are more than just their financial accounts. It’s important to me to really connect; to understand how you want to live your life with your family and your communities. I want to help you find wellness not only financially, but holistically. To do that, I want to learn about what makes you happy and to help you make your retirement plan look like you.

Why the different approach?

Very early in my career, just after graduating from college, I started selling insurance. I fell in love with it; I was good at it, and I felt I was helping people prepare for their futures. I felt valued. I had come home after a long day at work, pulled into my driveway and paused. I had a good life – or so it looked on the outside. But suddenly, in that moment, none of what I saw seemed that important. There was something missing. I had to do something different.

Over the last 25 years, I’ve had many coaches – in business and in fitness. I’ve read over 100 self-help books. I became a student of myself and saw something was changing in me. My focus changed; it became less about ‘stuff’ and more about experiencing life. Time is our most precious commodity, and I wanted to spend it with my wife, my family, and our friends doing things. That realization is what brought me to “un-retirement”. The acute awareness that I want to continue to be active even after I retire; which requires not only financial health, but also (and maybe even more importantly) physical and spiritual health. I want the same for my clients.

I began to see retirement as the beginning of a fantastic journey. Retirement is no longer about the culmination of a career; but instead leads us into a new beginning.

UN-Retire. You’ve come a long way; overcome obstacles, raised your kids, and did all the adult stuff you were supposed to do. Helping you create a plan toward realizing your un-retirement dreams is what drives me today.
