When you reach 50 years of age, you cross a rubicon. You may only have 10-15 peak earning years remaining, and it is important to use these years well and answer some key questions:
- What will retirement look like for me/us? Will I continue to work in some capacity? Travel? Buy a dream property? A combination of both?
- Do I “know my number,” or how much monthly income I will need when I am longer working and bringing home a paycheck?
- Am I on track? If not … Is it still possible and how do I get there?
- What are potential roadblocks, and how can I mitigate those risks?
- How can I leave behind a financial legacy for my heirs?
I am a financial advisor in North Texas (Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex) with 9 years of investment and insurance industry experience. I am also (along with my wife Kim) a new member to the over-50 club and passionate about helping other Pre-Retirees maximize their peak earning years and build a nest egg that can provide the income and lifestyle they desire throughout their retirement years. I am also determined to help Pre-Retirees create a plan that factors in the unexpected!
If you need help in asking these important questions and taking the next step toward your retirement dreams and goals, please schedule a complementary 15-minute phone consult. I am a fiduciary and will always work in your best interest, and I would love to learn more about you and your goals and see if working together makes sense.
Many of my clients are college faculty saving for retirement through the Optional Retirement Plan (ORP) and other 403b accounts at Texas institutions of higher learning. But I also work with pre-retirees who are contributing to 401k’s and looking to maximize their employee benefits, and small business owners who want to set aside more money in tax-deferred retirement accounts. Most of my clients live in the DFW Metroplex, but I also have clients in northwest Louisiana, Arkansas, and the other states listed below.
