We’re Scott and Angela Winstead, and we love being a local DFW retirement professional couple to so many families in this area.


We really focus on taking a lot of the complexity out of retirement as well as tax-efficient strategies and break it down into a plan that you’ll actually understand so you’ll have a plan to enjoy the retirement you worked so many years for.

If you are looking for a retirement professional that will bend over backwards for their clients, we believe you have come to the right spot. The only requirement is that you have to be a nice person, that’s it.


Scott Winstead

Founder and Retirement Professional


“Life has a very funny way of throwing curveballs at us, and we don’t ever get to pick and choose when they come. What we do get to pick and choose is how prepared we are when they do come. I want you to take the first step in being prepared for curveballs when they do come your way in retirement.”

Since 2009, Scott has helped families just like yours prepare and have a true plan to help you pursue retirement success. As an author, podcaster, and frequent presenter, you’ll come to enjoy Scott’s sense of humor and his love for helping families prepare for retirement curveballs that might come their way.

Scott has passed the series 7, 63 and 65 securities exams and also holds a life, health, and annuity licenses in Texas.

In his spare time he enjoys hunting and fishing, but also has a deep appreciation for improving his cooking skills. Spending quality time with his family and friends is what Scott loves most. You’ll see Scott on the sidelines coaching his two children’s teams, and being active in any way he can as he is a former Division 1 soccer athlete.

A special note from Scott to you:

"We don’t want you to run out of money in retirement. You can have all the money in the world but if you don’t know how to generate an income with it, it doesn’t matter. The great news is that there is only one requirement for my wife and I to work with you, you have to be nice. If you meet that, I promise you that we’ll bend over backwards for you to help you create a plan for your future."
