This is a practical workshop that covers all the core aspects of Medicare: what it is, what it covers, what it costs, and how to enroll.
Featuring Christine Mather from the State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP)
Paul is the President and founder of Paul Winkler, Inc., a registered investment advisory firm located in Goodlettsville, Tennessee. Paul began his career in the financial services industry in 1989 through—like countless others—insurance and mutual fund sales.
After discovering the academic research on investing, he was compelled to start his own business. “With my new understanding of investing, I could no longer, in good conscience, work for the broker-dealer selling products. I wanted to offer clients an investing experience unlike what they would find elsewhere, where they wouldn’t feel sold to, but instead would be coached to understand investing.”
Paul’s unique approach to the world of investing and financial planning stems from his strong belief that the traditional approach to the discipline is often driven more by marketing and sales of financial products than it is by sound investment philosophies. Paul is the author of the book “Above the Maddening Crowd” which is endorsed by many financial teachers and university professors around the country.
