My father was a carpenter in the San Francisco Bay Area and passed away unexpectedly. After my father's passing, our family learned that my father had taken a single life pension and there were no financial reserves for my mother. This mistake caused me to not only help my mother through retirement but the experience gave me the drive to assist other people though their retirement. I feel I understand my client's decisions and the emotions that go into the retirement planning process much better than the average advisor.
I usually spend my day meeting with clients. I review their accounts and future plans. I also discuss investment strategies with my partner Steve Boblis. Once a week Steve & I will host a seminar/webinar as a group educational event. During my time at The Retirement Group, Steve & I have really become quite the team.
I think educating clients is the most important step of the process. Benjamin Franklin once said "An investment in knowledge pays the best interest." We want to be transparent and make sure at the end of the day you leave my meeting knowing how to improve your situation.
The most rewarding part of my job is being able to vicariously live through my clients. I love hearing all the great retirement plans my clients make. Whether its remodeling the house, a cross country road trip, or even just taking care of the grandkids every story has its charm and its amazing to help make these plans a reality.
