And Jesse helped you know thousands of other people in the Austin area right and I think the first question first thing I want to highlight for are you listening has. Why why would you comment in any way fast. And just as I share with other. Families that we meet west. First and foremost we are independent. We are an independent advisory firm as well as an independent. Insurance for our. And you might ask yourself well why is that important well I wanna tell you it's very important because you want to understand what licensing. Financial professional has before meeting with them because you wanna make sure that what they are. Providing solutions for you. Is really your best interest not suggest what their able to sell because of their licensing and he you know if you walk into insurance only shop. Guess what you probably gonna get insurance is a oh are you know vice Versa if you walked into a you know stockbroker. Only shot you pride can I get in mutual funds. Access is that admire both independent. Investment advisors. And duly licensed with insurance. As is very important to have a comprehensive. Plan. Secondly case is that mentioned we are both fiduciary east so. You know you wanna make sure that he you're working for RV you're working with they work for you. And have to you see your best interest and I think our biggest value. Is that we are a planning. A retirement planning firm we really have purpose in our planning we can make sure that your working with some wanted to dressing your. Needs. You know. But there was an employee that was with me for 55 or six years in you've probably heard about Emily sent. And Emily moved back to Dallas where she grew up we both grew up in Dallas and Kenneth sisters from the same neighborhood. And an Elizabeth I mean Huskies beat Emily semi Christmas card. And she said you know on working for another. Fiduciary. And she says I really miss. The way that we were planning with a purpose. And so she's just about you know.

And I deep dive into that planning with a purpose because that's gonna bring us. Right into our mile walk you through our first appointment and these questions and and what exactly do we mean by planning with a purpose. Well more often than not we meet with families and they have a collection of accounts right. And this just happened over time they worked here have an IRA retirement account. They've got an account sitting over here but there's really no purpose our objective assigned to necessarily. They all know retirement as a goal but. We really get more specific guarantee purpose if for example we see people all the time coming in with insurance. Policies. But when we asked a question wolf why do you have this what is it four. It silence them and so really we have to help you we're gonna help you uncover. You know what is what are you trying to get this investment. To do for you. And more often your needs today. Are very different and your needs when you might have purchased an investment. 1015. Years ago. And so really having to hack comes with an answer.

I know expand on that from mom meant the first appointment when we are discussing and really defining purpose for your. Retirement and your life in your dreams your goals those are really personal feelings questions it's. Far more than just a checking some boxes on you know the standard risk tolerance you've all seen on. You know daddy daddy daddy brokered dot com our retirement planning dot com yeah we really want that. Deep dive and do what your. Goals aren't very personal. And so that first appointment it's all about getting to know one another. You're gonna feel like you know a year and a doctor's office are getting interrogated we are going to really do a deep dive and really get to know each other on that appointment. But the outcome of that and their reason for doing that is you know the more information and we are able to collect and more personalized. Personalized to your situation. Were able to provide you with really three very important deliverables. As a result of that meeting. And that's going to be the our risk analysis. I've your current investment portfolio. And the risk analysis and also the fee analysis. Big deal that's a big deal and then just as Suzanne mentioned the Social Security timing and how does that play into your overall. Financial plan. And then the cat and the the big picture of this is the checklist if you Willits going dude take into account all of your inflows and outflows and your assets and your risk in your earnings on them and projecting out throughout retirement. And a year by year cash Phil analysis. And uncover where those risks my idea of running out of money or someone getting ill or so my dying down and you know what I went through. A wrench in the plane and because if you're sitting there and you're listening to this is like blob lob linemen in no way of what this is about I know you. And there's many view as couples frankly that you're not on the same page with your spouse. And I'm thinking of stories that we've sat with couples that like ice that would when this afternoon and one of them is of by jitter and very clear on the numbers in the other one doesn't really care doesn't wanna know. All of that. And so how do you how do you work with that family mean what what do we do Elizabeth. Will we try to meet people where they are used some things in life Dillinger energy and some things in life just Wear you out cook. So we have to have day expect a happy medium rare and we see it all the time to you know some might be about Jeter and some might not. But we also see a real difference between someone's comfort with the red scorn their perception of rest and that has to be a discussion and in plain English. And I can't begin to tell you how many people are always talk in over their heads in using. Language barriers that you don't even understand we're gonna talk in plain English that's what I love our class that we teach so much because. Again it's really about what is the perception and gaining. Everyone on the same page that they feel comfortable and they know what they have their portfolio and they know what it's doing for them who. Well to help you educate this Sutton I love about our firm. Is that we're constantly having events last year. We did a geeks glide to a wonderful thing where they came in and explain how to use your heart your phone. But we also had someone there representing a real estate investment trust for data centers. And they were able to explain. What exactly is a real estate investment in a lot of people don't wanna be in their sixties and seventies collecting Renton retaining house and re carpeting and rental. That you can still participate. In some really cool investor stuff without having to go buy a house. Right so again we make it so that it's. A you know appropriate or understandable for. In the average investor and they really understand the purpose of why they're doing mess. Well and the other thing too and I remember ever calling Gallic came in for that first appointment she had done a great job. With investments. But she had. Cash 1015 properties that were in the oil and gas industry shoes in her eighties. And I said the you know eat we are defined Elizabeth by the questions that we ask. And so by asking the best questions. We're gonna get answers to the things so that people can uncover problems. And make sure they've got solutions for that in this gal with all these oil and gas properties those are deeds that she had not set up properly. To pass on to her loved ones. And in her eighties she died that would have all gone through probate and everybody have to get fractional and trends send all of this mess and so we were able to use our affinity relationships with the attorney. And put that into a revoke global trust and set up some estate planning she's thrilled. Because now for very low cost she's able to protect those assets from probate and from the cost of death. That's a great. Example and when you talk about beauty about financial planning or your retirement plan. Most people. Individuals as well as professionals stop at the investment accounts at financial planning in retirement planning. Has to have all those other components. Again what is going to be the distribution of my assets and my passing. And how does that impact my tightly in my and what do I do today to make share. That those wishes half then as I hit and directing. And so you wanna make sure that you are working with someone who really does look at a comprehensive. Holistic. Planning approach yeah.

Hi I'm season Blackburn owner of capstar financial and host of talk thirteen seven knees financial lies radio. I'm inviting you to make a planned a retirement plan because now is the time to start. I'd like to offer listeners the chance with a personalized complimentary. Retirement analysis. Or are Social Security timing report. Com leases at Blackburn. Today at 5122159030. Retirements coming when you're ready for it or not so let's make a plan together. It's 512215. 9030. Our capstar financial dot com investment advisory services offered through global financial private capital LLC an SEC registered investment advisor. Welcome back to financial wise with C said Blackburn and Elizabeth James. Welcome back to finance two lines you don't let this is a great show on our first appointment with you. And explaining TU the. Questions that we ask. The information that we're gathering so that we can give you the best practices in Austin which is called a red line report. That you get to keep for no charge you to call us at 512. 2159030. But I wanna give you the key concepts of what we're doing with the folks that need our help. Is that you've worked your whole life you've been an expert in your field you're very knowledgeable what you do. But what we do is we bring to light by asking good questions. This problems of Social Security timing. Of should we keep the life insurance or not she we do estate planning are not. We to count when do we withdraw first second third. What how do we build this financial house. With the risk or cash. Or annuities or real estate or stocks and bonds and mutual funds and ET sent all that. And we have done a great job by educating our clients on how to do that and through the year we invite you to different events that we. Have to highlight those asset classes. I see it very frequently we will have clients come to us. And they have you done all right and they have worked and saved and through that accumulation phase. In their life. They have a nice mix of assets as Suzanne just mentioned sound IRAs and some brokerage accounts and annuities and insurance. And then it's yeah the million dollar question. You know I retire. I got these different buckets of money now why. Where do a how in which she cannot do I turn on. For a paycheck and what order and you know what mix what's gonna be the most tax efficient. Way. For me to do that. And it's thirty year life because we. We believe the buck hitting approach is about the best and if you come in the office Collison 512215. 9030 will explain. We really really think it's important that you choose specific accounts to have purpose. In different segments of your life in different time lines. A 41 to five years five to 1010. And beyond an emergency fund a recovery bucket. A risk bucket OK a fund bucket. You know those are things that we want to assign purpose too so that if you've got one this designed for fifteen years from now and it takes a dip in the market. You've got a long period of time to recover. And that also really helps with just be. Expectations. Or perceptions and if you have a good plan like we have with our clients at capstar. When we have purpose and plans for different buckets of money well then we don't have to the worry. If we have a long term growth they cannot have a little. Volatility because that's what it's designed to ditto that's not our. You know Grisham storm Bonnie today that's another camp now you might be sitting here listening going only got I don't want to lose a dime don't lose a penny of my money. Well we know how to do that we know how to grow it with absolutely no risk. And will explain to the good the bad and the fine print C you know what you're getting into as well. That's right and everybody has again everyone has a different. Perception and a Def different needs different objectives. And so it's going to be a customized approach it's gonna meet your needs you know if you want to lose control of your life. Lose control of your financial life. And I say that a lot because when we're in our thirties. And we have a financial crisis or forties. Our bodies can handle the stress at a different level than if you seventy. And so by looking at this report you're going to be looking at age by age year by year. Which account do you withdraw from what's the tax implication in that year do we turn on a pension duly delay. What about Social Security we do we take it is 62. Or do we wait 'til full retirement age or do we wait til later what about a spousal benefit. Those are the things that are absolutely. Official important you or repay replacing a paycheck. For thirty years and Social Security is about 4%. Of retirees incomes so it is day. A big portion a substantial portion of your retirement income so yeah and that is an irrevocable decision. That you need to get right the first time so you don't just make a big decision.
