Rethinking Retirement With a Net Worth Thinking Lens
Hi. My name is Susan O’Brien. Not only am I a Calgary financial advisor at the award-winning Susan O’Brien Group, I’m also the founder of the Net Worth Thinking Lens for High-Income Earners. If you’ve been asking yourself: Will I run out of money in retirement? Or, can I maintain my current lifestyle in retirement? You’re not alone. Almost every client who comes to me has these concerns, regardless of the wealth they’ve built over their lifetime.
At my nationally recognized advisory firm, I provide clients with an innovative, collaborative approach to wealth management and retirement planning. As an entrepreneur and mother of four children, I have a passion for helping people not only build their own net worth but also ensure their wealth passes on to future generations. How? Well, I believe in bringing the vision you have for your retirement into reality by viewing and planning your finances through the four net worth thinking lenses: focus, function, family and freedom.
The quiz is a key component of the Net Worth Thinking Lens and can help you determine which areas of your financial life need attention.
