Josh lives in Lincoln Nebraska with his wife Stephanie and two kids Noah and Addy. Josh started in the industry in 2011 as a career agent with Ohio National. In 2015 he started an independent firm Clarity Financial. In the early stages of building Clarity he began searching for a new income model for his clients in retirement. The ideal model would deliver higher potential withdrawal rates, reduce sequence-of-returns risk, and help clients stay invested during volatile markets. This new strategy developed into what’s now called the Portfolio Waterfall. This strategy has been reviewed by several CFA’s and analysts at some of the largest firms in the industry. Today he’s excited to share the Portfolio Waterfall strategy to help you create a replenishing income stream for your clients.
