Everyone has different lifestyles, stories and emotions. We'll discuss the proper strategies to accomplish your unique financial goals.
Retirement isn't an age or number. We'll discuss finding the balance between living life today and feeling financially confident about YOUR tomorrow.
We'll take complex financial subjects and make them simple to help you feel confident to take action, enjoy life, and eliminate financial stress and anxiety.
As you tally up what your income in retirement may look like (or already is), don’t forget to account for taxes. This video discusses how some of your primary sources of retirement income are taxed and 5 strategies to help reduce those taxes and keep more of your income with you vs. going to the IRS.
Thinking about retiring early? Looking to get a jumpstart on that “bucket list”? Maybe you are just tired of the workforce and ready for independence. We’ve helped others, just like you, towards that same goal and there are 5 areas that you will want to make sure you have covered if retiring before age 65.
Your 401(k) may be one of your biggest retirement savings tools. But, how do you use it? At what age can you take a withdrawal? What if you wish to take control of your funds instead of leaving it at your employer? In this video, we cover those subjects along with other 401(k) withdrawal rules.
Scott Sierens is the host of the Your Life, Your Money Podcast. He is the President of Sierens Financial Group in Elgin, Illinois.
Scott is a graduate of the University of Illinois with a degree in Civil Engineering and worked 14 years in project management before changing careers. Despite enjoying overseeing multimillion-dollar projects, he missed the personal touch of working with individuals and families and wanted to make more of a direct impact on people’s lives. So, he transitioned his strengths in planning and fiscal responsibility into a financial planning career.
Creating an independent practice was important to Scott. No corporate pressures. No sales pressures. Just do what’s right for people. He’s able to provide a comprehensive planning approach and put the best interest of his clients first.
Scott actively participates with the local Big Brothers Big Sisters chapter and Rock Steady Boxing, which teaches boxing to individuals with Parkinson’s Disease. He enjoys spending time with family, working on home renovation projects, hiking, traveling, and taking his cousins on their annual trip to the water park.
