Topic: Long-Term Success Through Effective Planning
Speaker: Karen E. Stawicki
ACAG of Charleston is pleased to have been invited to share valuable information with the PMI Charleston Chapter after receiving positive feedback from our sponsorship of the GMIS/PMI Leadership Conference in April.
If you want to know what makes being independent different, you’ll want to hear what Karen Stawicki, an Investment Advisory Representative of Atlantic Coast Advisory Group of Charleston has to say.
Having recently gone from a very Corporate Structure to one of an Independent nature, Karen can explain firsthand how “Independence” allows you to think outside the box. She will help you understand financial independence and what’s necessary to achieve that for you and your family. As a Project Manager, we know that the most important project of your life is the one you certainly don’t want to get wrong. We will be discussing the various components of what makes a strong family protection and retirement plan with an emphasis on tax leveraging strategies.
ACAG of Charleston offers education and services including but not limited to Health Insurance, Disability Coverage, Long Term Care Insurance, Business Succession and Continuation Strategies, Buy-Sell Agreements, Key Man Insurance, Life Insurance, Investments, Annuities and other such Retirement Planning tools.
If you feel like you’re climbing up the ladder to a successful retirement plan you should definitely hear what Karen has to share with you….. after all, you wouldn’t want to find out too late that your ladder was leaning up against the wrong building.
