Dean knows many close to retirement are not sure if and when retirement will become truly affordable, without the fear of running out of money years down the road. Current retirees, regardless of their age, might also wonder if it's too late for positive changes to be implemented with themselves. As a member of the Dave Ramsey SmartVestor program, Dean focuses on helping clients find solutions to these potential retirement issues.
Keeping score was a fixture for every game you played as a child. We don't believe anything has changed as adults. Having a written personalized retirement plan to follow, greatly enhances our client's path to security and a comfortable retirement lifestyle. It's a way for our clients to keep score so we can tell if they are on the right path to achieve their retirement goals. Isn't this what you want?
