Rick Parkes has been helping pre-retirees and retirees sleep better for 35 years. No, he is not a pharmacist or a doctor; he is a financial consultant and best-selling author whose strategy for helping his clients achieve financial protection has found its way into television, radio and print.

The way Rick sees it, what’s the use of being retired if you don’t have reassurance about your money?

“When you retire, you should be able to walk the beach, not pace the floor, wondering if you will run out of money,” Rick says. “You should be watching sunsets, not the stock market ticker.”

Rick says he views his job as “simple as ABC”: Help people find point A by establishing where they are now with their assets, then determine what they want their money to do for them (point B) and then (C) show them how they can get there.

What has caught the attention of so many in the print and electronic media about Rick’s formula for retirement success is its simplicity. Rick says money is only numbers on paper until you know what you want it to do for you. He believes that once you put a strategy in place, you should spend your future enjoying it, not worrying about it.

It all starts with a no-obligation, straight-talk discussion in Rick’s office.
