“Many boomer clients are not coasting toward retirement. Many boomers still have a lot of planning and accumulation left to do to be ready at retirement age. I’m finding success in helping boomers to put their many disjoined pieces into one plan.”
“Overcoming the entitlement mentality of the boomers can be very difficult, but I find that connection comes from leading them to the understanding that the glory days of entitlement growth in this country are over and they need to be prepared to take care of themselves.”
