Believe in Better for Your Future: Your Guide to Holistic Retirement and Financial Planning

Author: Michael K. Macke, CFP®

“This book is not about investments, stock markets or annuities, but a completely different take on finance.”
– Michael Macke

In Michael’s introductory book, he presents a candid analysis of the current state of the financial services industry. Michael illustrates that it’s no longer about doing what’s best for clients; instead, Wall Street has taken over and many advisors only care about the bottom dollar. Clients aren’t educated about their options and are pressed to purchase products that may not be in their best interests. For this reason, Michael felt a need to create a book that reads like a “how to” manual. After all, each client has their own story and goals. This is a must-read for anyone ready to take back control of their retirement planning.
