Changing Your Financial Mindset for Retirement
Bijan Golkar, CFP
Vice President/Senior Advisor
FPC Investment Advisory, Inc.
Most people approaching retirement understand that life is about to change a whole lot: More freedom, more time, less day-to-day structure. But what many new retirees don't grasp is that their financial mindset needs to undergo a major change as well. Simply put, without that consistent stream of work income, your financial margin of error becomes a lot smaller, and your financial stability becomes less secure.

Bijan has been quoted in The Wall Street Journal, U.S. News and World Report, Yahoo Finance, The Fiscal Times and He is located in San Francisco, Calif.
