I first started in the industry back in 1995. I spent several years educating financial advisors from Merrill Lynch, Morgan Stanley, Prudential, and other national companies on retirement plan design, and I worked for Metropolitan Life helping them launch a new retirement program.
There were 2 significant events in my life that led me to my current and most rewarding path of helping families gain financial security.
The first was my parents’ retirement problems. They spent much of their retirement taking seminars and learning about investing and they traded their own accounts to supplement their retirement income. As far as I knew they were successful. They never said otherwise.
When my dad passed, my mom told me that, in fact, they had lost a lot in the stock market and she was concerned about having enough money to live on. Now they were both smart people and had dedicated a lot of their time to learning about investing. Instead of Mom enjoying her golden years, she pinches every penny hoping that her money will last.
The other significant event was the economic crash in 2008 from the mortgage crisis. I watched my retirement account drop like a rock, as did my friends and associates. I knew there had to be a better way.
