Kevin Kennedy is the President of Kennedy Wealth and Tax Management, a financial business founded in 1995. Their team of retirement specialists provides investment advising and consultation to clients with assets over $1 million. Their services include tax management and financial planning with a focus on retirement. Kevin started the company because he wanted to offer unbiased investment offerings to help clients secure their financial future.
Kevin joins me today to explain why financial planning should be ongoing and must be ironed out by the time you’re 62. He recalls how we met in 2008 and our goals back when we started our companies. He discusses how to properly design your financial goals and what your CPA should bring to the table. Kevin also describes why clients who communicate regularly are easier to work with than those who only meet with us once a year.
“It’s not a financial plan, it’s financial planning. It’s on an ongoing, modular basis.” – Kevin Kennedy
