I am Jamison Smith, a wealth advisor at EWA. And this is going to be a series of ten videos. We’re going to give ten tips for anybody that is currently in retirement or thinking about retiring anytime soon.

Some things to consider before you decide to make that big decision. The first one, and this may be the most important, is to make sure that you have a team of trusted advisors that could consist of financial advisor, CPA, attorney, anybody that is handling your financial plan.

Important to have one centralized person or team coordinating all of that. EWA clients have the EWA team that coordinates with tax professionals, attorneys. And the biggest thing there is, it saves your times, especially if you are retired.
