Financial Planning: It’s Not Grandpa’s Oldsmobile

My Grandpa told me that the plan to my financial security was simple. He said that I should get a job with a big company, preferably one with a Union, work hard, and after 30 years, I could retire on my pension and take it easy.  I’m not saying that Gramps was wrong, but if life and financial security was ever that simple, it is not true anymore.

Today, no one that I meet tells me that planning for their financial security is not important, but yet many people fail to create and work their plan, or any plan. Someone recently asked me why this happens and I told them that for many people, life gets in the way. There is work to be done, bills to pay, kids to carpool, projects to be constructed and crises to deal with. I am sure of this, because my life as a father of 3 is no different. Understanding all of the possible paths and options to build a secure financial future can frankly be overwhelming. Many people choose to just not deal with it.

My goal is to make creating and managing the right financial plan easy for you.  I can help you do what’s right for you and the people you care about, whether you are a corporate executive, running your own business, just starting out, or even retired. Best of all, my commitment to you is that I won’t overwhelm you or intimidate you. I only succeed in my role, if you succeed, and like Gramps with me, that’s all I want for you.

Home is where the greatest moments are shared and where the most valuable and meaningful memories are made. But sometimes, life happens. From technology and social media to work-life imbalance to competing schedules, families can struggle to be present and connect on a more personal level at home.

This fall, Northwestern Mutual wants families to find that connection at home again. Parents can submit a video or photo of their kid's ultimate home experience inspiration — the bigger, the more out-of-the-box, and the more imaginative the ideas, the better — and we may just ring your doorbell to make your dream a reality!
