What does it look like for you?
Yes, that's me and my wife with Mr. Hollis at my 10 year dinner.
When I retired, the ESOP and Profit Sharing were still separate programs. And after going through the distribution process myself with no experience or professional guidance at the time, I soon realized how confusing it can be.
Almost immediately after taking my distribution, I began helping other Publix Associates plan for their life after Publix, and today I'm still passionate about helping other Publix Associates avoid the mistakes I made, and still see people making today.
Most of our clients initially began working with us because they felt it was time to begin preparing retirement and wanted to find out where they were in relation to their goals.
As a result, over the last 20+ years, I've helped dozens of current and former Publix Associates through a variety of financial challenges. And today, because of the knowledge and experience I've acquired since then, over 80 percent of my clients are from Publix.
Characteristics that define a financial advisor.
As a Publix Associate, I know choosing a financial advisor can be very confusing and there is no shortage of firms throughout the South actively seeking your business. I believe at least part of that confusion is because many in my industry have adopted the title "financial advisor".
(I even went to a car dealership recently and the salesperson's title was "client advisor").
According to Investopedia.com
"a true financial advisor should be a well-educated, credentialed, experienced, financial professional who works on behalf of his clients, as opposed to serving the interests of a financial institution". "Generally, a financial advisor is an independent practitioner who operates in a fiduciary capacity in which a client’s interests come before their own".
With that in mind, I am:
You have multiple choices for your retirement advice, but because of my experience and my time at Publix, I know the challenges you face, and how to help you successfully navigate them.
Doesn't it make sense to have someone with this type of knowledge and experience working for you!
