We have found that most people start seriously wondering if they will make it within 5 years of their anticipated retirement. We use a custom planning approach to analyzing your retirement income needs and have found that this approach provides you with a solid answer to the question of "Will I make it?" Financial blind spots come in varying forms. However, we have found that most blind spots come in the form of unidentified portfolio risks. Using a very robust risk discovery system, we help you not only identify what risk really means to you, but quantify what that risk might do to your portfolio if you encountered difficult markets (such as another 2008, financial crisis or rising interest rates).

He began his career in financial services in March 2000 and has built an independent advisory firm that focuses on the critical requirements of planning for and comfortably enjoying one's retirement, by focusing on four primary areas: (1) Making sure that clients never lose money, by using strategies and tools that are most appropriate for retirees; (2) Helping clients to minimize income and estate taxes, through little known planning strategies; (3) Ensuring that clients will always have adequate, predictable retirement income - that they cannot outlive; and (4) Helping clients to leave the largest and most tax-efficient legacy possible, for their children and grandchildren. In addition to being a Charter Member of the SCRFA, he is also a member of the Wealth and Wisdom Institute.

||President and Member in good standing through 9/15/2020. Joseph Webb III, CRFA, CLTC is licensed as an office of Supervisory Jurisdiction Branch Manager with the Financial West Group, an independent Broker/Dealer for the state of Florida. He is also a Registered Principal and founder of Profit Planners Management Group, a boutique Financial Services Company. He specializes in business transitions realizing/deferring taxes and providing income, wealth management, and estate planning solutions for individuals and corporations. Mr. Webb's paradigms on life and business emanate from the strong base of values on which he stands. Originally, from Cleveland, Ohio, Joseph Webb, Ill has established several successful businesses under Twin Peaks Enterprises while serving his country for twenty-nine years in the U.S. Air Force Reserves. He received his B.A. and M.A. from St. Thomas Christian University and his financial education and licensing from Kaplan Financial University. The St. Thomas Christian University also conferred an Honorary Doctorate on Joe for his tireless work with churches, non-profit organizations and the religious community. He conducts his life and his business on the foundation principles of Integrity, Truth, Honesty, Transparency, and Client First and Always. Joe is passionate about, and committed to, educating all his clients in various areas of financial literacy. He believes that the education of the client to better understand and participate in making choices and decisions which affect the future is empowering for everyone and vital for sustained success and financial independence. He tailor-makes and designs a menu of options to satisfy the individual needs of each client. If he believes his solutions cannot satisfy mutually-developed criteria and bring value to each client while advancing financial gains for their investments, he will so advise the client and walk away. Taxation and wealth transfer are two key areas that he addresses with each plan. One of his major passions is the financial education for economic stability, empowerment, independence and success in his community. Joe makes presentations to various groups, lecturing and hosting financial workshops on Financial Planning for Business Leaders and individuals at Miami Dade College and for the Economic Development Council of South MiamiÂ Dade. Mr. Webb also serves as Chairman of the Trustee Board at a local not for profit organization.

EPT is a professional group of highly trained advisors comprised of top tax attorneys and advisors committed to assisting clients with business transitions. Over the next twenty years, it is estimated that 20 trillion dollars will transition to the next generation in the United States. Many of these individuals want to minimize their potential tax liability by deferring tax, the Estate Planning Team believes that we engineer the liability as well as increase income for the beneficiary. According to Pew Research Center, roughly 10,000 baby boomers will turn 65 today, and about 10,000 more will cross that threshold every day for the next 15 years.
