All my life, my job has been to protect folks, I just never put protecting people and my purpose together. That’s my purpose and my passion. When I was a kid playing football, I was on the offensive line, protecting the quarterback or the running back. Even when I was off the field, I was there for my friends when they needed someone to talk to or got into trouble. I chose retirement planning because I recognized this was a career where I could keep protecting people. Not having enough money is a scary thought, and the idea of running out of money in retirement can keep people up at night. An uncertain stock market, the possibility of another recession, increased taxes, and health care costs all contribute to this fear. As a retirement planner, it’s my responsibility to look at these risks, build plans that answer my clients’ needs, and help people enjoy their retirement without fear.

Great leaders aren’t the folks who can do everything themselves; they’re the ones who can bring together the best people to get the job done.

She is also in the process of receiving her Certified Financial Planner designation, the premier financial planning designation in our industry. We’ll also be bringing on more team members on the service side to better meet the needs of our clients. Those new faces will be introduced as we move forward. Additionally, I’ll strive to be less in control of everything, and I will assume more of a leadership role, utilizing It’s always a prudent idea to surround yourself with people who complement These changes will include advancing Eileen Ybanez to an advisor role, so you can expect Annuity guarantees rely on the financial strength and claims-paying ability of the issuing insurer.

However, in my line of work, while you might be great at building plans and meeting with clients, that doesn’t mean you’ll be great at running a business. I believe I’ve done a pretty good job so far, but I know I can do even better because there is always room for improvement.

Focusing includes continuing to attend business and leadership conferences, such as the ones I attended at the end of last year, in order to improve many aspects of Wolf Retirement Navigation.
