Whether you want to retire or not, everyone wants to someday say...

"My investments pay my salary now."
The Sooner You Start, The Sooner You Can Say It

Do you want to HAVE to work in your 70s?

Many people say they don’t want to retire. At age 65 you won’t feel that way. So, let’s ask a different question: Do you want your primary income source to be from employment… at age 75?

That sounds terrible. Fortunately, there is a solution – a legit investment plan created while your primary income source IS employment.

The longer to wait to do this, the more difficult your financial future becomes.


The eternal war between Inflation vs Returns.

This is $100, today

In 30 years, it’s worth $40.*

That’s what inflation does.

From the day you stop working to the day you or your partner pass away, inflation will happen just like this, to you.

*based off of historical inflation figures

If your investment income doesn't beat inflation, then you will run out of money.

A proper plan solves this. The longer you wait to establish one, the more difficult the math gets.

The data effects us all equally

But we don’t all respond equally. The wrong response is costly. The right response gets a comfortable retirement.


At trendline inflation of three percent, the cost of living goes up almost two and a half times over thirty years.

What this means for you

If you haven’t got a plan to increase your income about as much as your living costs are going up in retirement, then you have a plan for running out of money.

The S&P

The S&P’s stock index is currently made up of hundreds of the largest, best financed, most profitable companies in America and the world. Those companies have been raising their dividends at very nearly twice the inflation rate as long as anyone reading this has been alive.

What this means for you

Rising dividends are the most important strategy to keep your retirement income growing well beyond your living costs.

Currency isn't Money

The only rigorous definition of money is purchasing power. Currency isn’t money; it’s just currency, and it loses some of its purchasing power every day, because of inflation. Even if you perfectly preserve your principal, and your cost of living doubles over time, you’ll have lost half your money.

What this means for you

​History speaks louder than the emotion of the moment. You are statistically highly unlikely to gain an advantage over the equity market by going in and out of it because of current events or perceived threats. Our policy is to avoid radical changes based upon events, always. We counsel that if your goals haven’t changed, you ought not to change your portfolio.

*Rising dividends (aka returns) is the way smart people have kept their retirement incomes growing well beyond inflation.
  • If your returns are lower than inflation in retirement, you’re getting poorer each year.
  • If your returns are even with inflation in retirement, you’re still getting poorer each year (taxes).
  • If your returns beat inflation in retirement, you’re likely staying the same, because taxes will eat part of your investment income and you’ll only be able to get a certain amount from your investment each year without risking running out of money too early.
  • If your returns substantially beat inflation in retirement, you’re safe, happy, comfortable, and carefree – maybe even raising your standard of living.

We’ve reviewed over 10,000 financial plans. Retirement, taxes, insurance, annuities.

Start your plan

Improve your plan

Review your plan

You can do this today.

If you haven’t started a plan, the best time is the present, and 80 years of data proves it. The longer you wait the worse it will get for you.

If you already have a plan, get a second opinion. If our portfolios can beat your current setup, you win.
