Retirement Planning Today: Retire with Confidence.

We believe Retirement Planning Today involves more than just planning for finances.

Take Inventory

The foundation of your financial plan is understanding your balance sheet/net worth and income statement/cost of living. We've developed this template to help you get started. Also check out the podcast below, which discusses our recommended best practices.

Roadblocks and Mistakes

A major theme of the common mistakes section has to do with spending, debt and not taking advantage of tax incentives to save and invest for retirement. In this section we would like you to listen to the following three podcasts:

Spending and Lifestyle Creep - have we mentioned we should track our expenses?

America's Refinance Addiction - focus on the payoff, not the payment!

Retirement Funding Priorities -  should you start with a 401k? Roth IRA? HSA? 

Retirement Accounts and Social Security

Social Security, Portfolio, Rental Real Estate, Consulting, No Debt, these are all part of the Peak Income 360 Formula, which seeks to replace the Pension which many of us are missing these days. Study the Peak Income 360 Handout, watch this quick video below, and listen to the podcast below. Also below is our Social Security Podcast and Roth Conversion Podcast. But first, don't forget to visit the Social Security website and download your latest statement. Click the button below. 

Investment Risk and Strategies

Before discussing specific investment strategies or strategists, we always need to start with a discussion about RISK. Start below by clicking the "What's My Risk Number" Button.

Once we understand your risk tolerance, we can begin to build your investment model. We are your gateway to accessing UMAX, our third-party institutional strategists on the TD Ameritrade Institutional Platform. Click here to learn more about UMAX. 


Life, Disability, and Long Term Care Insurance are all important aspects of your comprehensive financial plan. Below we have a podcast on Life Insurance, Long Term Care Insurance (featuring industry expert Michael Tepper), and Social Security Disability (featuring attorney Jason Steinhelper).

Wills, Trusts, POA all serve important roles. Naming beneficiaries on insurance and investment accounts are equally if not more important. Take time today to double check your beneficiaries on all accounts. We also have a podcast featuring local Estate Planning Attorney Marc Wander.
