Retirement Coach and Advisor


Duane began his career in the financial services industry in 1970.  He has taught estate planning, asset protection, wealth creation and accumulation strategies, at both the adult education and university levels.  He is a member of a unique and rapidly growing nationwide group of advisors known as "safe-money" practitioners who specialize in financial vehicles that provide a large portion of the upside of the "market", while totally eliminating downside risk to principal, due to stock market declines. 

Duane also conducts periodic Senior Financial Survival Workshops for Senior Education Centers of America, a non-profit educational foundation, where he demonstrates proven (no cost) solutions to the two greatest fears facing today’s retirees  (1) potential financial devastation by the cost of long term care and (2) outliving their assets.  He remains on the cutting edge of his profession by devoting in excess of 100 hours per year to continuing education and financial product research.  He is committed to helping his clients achieve their financial goals by providing them with “safe-money” solutions to today’s financial challenges.  Duane has resided in Michigan with his family for over 50 years.
