TAYLOR R. SCHULTE, CFP®
FOUNDER & CEO
Welcome! I worked for large wealth management firms for half of my career. They spent more time talking about how to make the firm more money than how to make clients more money. I set out to change that.
In 2014, I launched Define Financial. We are a team of award-winning CFP® Professionals helping our clients reduce taxes, invest smarter, and retire on their terms.
I’m a regular contributor to Kiplinger and the host of a Forbes Top 10 retirement podcast called “Stay Wealthy”.
When I’m not perfecting financial plans, you can find me traveling with my wife and kids, searching for the next best carne asada burrito, or trying to master Adam Scott’s golf swing.
