Eric Johnson has always been passionate about helping people. From an early age growing up in the home of a pastor and missionary where the core values of faith, integrity and hard work were instilled from a young age.
Eric is specifically passionate about coaching people whose lives have become too busy or complex to focus on the integral details of financial planning. This includes business owners, pre-retirees, mid-career singles and families. Or, like many of Eric’s clients, those that just didn’t “click” with their parents’ Advisor and are looking for a fresh perspective.
Most importantly, Eric strives to make all of his clients feel comfortable, in an all-to-often uncomfortable process, by building relationships and working with them over time to make increasingly better financial decisions.
In the information-saturated environment in which we all live, it is imperative to remember what Napoleon Hill, the famous 20th Century Self-Help Author, coined:
“Knowledge is only potential power. It becomes power only when, and if, it is organized into definite plans of action, and directed to a definite end.”
ACTION is power. Eric is adamant that simple philosophies such as budgeting, being debt-free and saving for the future, in conjunction with having a specific financial action plan is the key to wealth building.
Eric graduated from Vanguard University with a degree in Business-Organizational Management. Eric’s combined love for helping people and his business acumen led him to Trilogy Financial where company CEO, Jeff Motske, is also Vanguard alum. In his free time, Eric loves spending time with his wife and two sons, volunteering with local charities and taking his two Labrador’s on long walks.
FIRE (Financial Independence, Retire Early) is trending as a new financial lifestyle. FIRE promotes extreme savings in your 20s, 30s and 40s, with the goal of being able to live off passive income from the accumulated nest egg much earlier than typical retirement age.
Preparation for retirement is extremely important, and it extends well beyond finances. That’s why you need to work on your retirement compatibility with your partner way before you stop working.
Retirement is the final chapter to solidify your life’s success. How that looks, though, is entirely up to you.
Financial Life Planning is about actually starting — taking a few good steps in the right direction and then taking a few more.
Financial Life Planning is fundamentally about taking a few good steps in the right direction and then taking a few more. Trilogy Financial has established regional offices from coast to coast with the clear vision of helping millions of Americans pursue financial independence, every day.
