From doing something that “feels right”,

to then wondering “what’s right?”.

How did McLean help Paul and Nancy achieve their retirement goals? Find out below...

Paul and Nancy, by every metric, were a highly successful couple. They owned a successful business that others envied, and only being in their early 50s, they were younger than most to be in their position. So, when the opportunity to liquidate their business arose, they looked at each other and said, “This feels right”.

But while the initial financial windfall felt right, turning it into an income-generating asset in their portfolio had them asking each other, “What’s right?” That question was so big for Paul that he stayed on with the purchasing firm to keep their income flowing. Considering they had been with a financial advisor for years, Paul and Nancy had a new question: “Why are we asking this?”. Well, their current “financial plan” was about 100 pages thick, and as Paul liked to say, “It brought me the anxiety of a horror story when it should have been an action adventure!” Paul decided to look for a new advisory firm and found McLean.


Paul Asked

“How can I know “what’s right” for our retirement after liquidating our business?”


To which we replied:

“The best plan, is your plan. Let’s learn what you want so we can help plan for how to achieve it!"

Paul and Nancy had spent so much time in fear that one of Mclean’s first tasks was helping them see they were financially sound enough to have fun. We helped them set up tangible spending goals and structured their assets to create a floor of guaranteed income, allowing them to relax and emotionally enjoy some of what life has to offer, all while hitting their financial goals.

How we helped Paul and Nancy:

Built a bridge of reliable income to get from retirement to delayed social security

Gave them a tangible retirement spending goal that met their emotional and financial goals

Gave Paul the confidence to say “thank you, goodbye!” to the purchasing firm

Deep down, Paul and Nancy knew they were writing an action-adventure novel for their retirement years; their old advisor had just written the wrong story. McLean showed them they still had time to start on page one.


“With Mclean, we can look back and say ‘doing what FELT right is the same as doing what WAS right’. Our McLean advisor didn’t just write a plan for us, they wrote an exciting story for us to star in for the rest of our lives.”
