Short, Concise and Excellent

James Conole is providing a great service for those who want to better understand the complicated financial world of retirement. He is taking the time to educate us in a clear and understandable way that focuses on the real life questions we have and want answers to.
I started my journey to understand retirement funding at age 62 and I listened to a lot of podcasts from different advisors. I can say, without hesitation, James is the best. Thank you!

Thank you

I am a novice, late-to-the-party investor at 55 and am trying to get on top of what we have and what our projection is to live our second half comfortably. I appreciate how you cover meaningful topics to everyday people like me in an understandable way. My guess is I am not alone and sure other novices will benefit. Thank you
