As an advisor, his best advice is to write down what is most important to you and put together a holistic financial/tax/healthcare plan to ensure you can have a worry-free retirement and spend time doing what you love. Justin believes that financial planning allows you to set goals to match the vision you may have for yourself and your family. It’s important to understand what you need to do to get on the right track but also remain on the right track throughout your life. He dislikes that people think that we are salespeople. Unfortunately, there are many in our industry that doesn’t work as fiduciaries and simply look to maximize their commissions. I respect that everyone here at JL Smith is salaried and all of our recommendations are based on the client's goals after a comprehensive financial, tax, healthcare, and estate plan have been reviewed by our team of professionals.
