Jeremy D. Tyler ChFC ®
My name is Jeremy and I am the leader of our organization. Notice that I did not say boss, as titles do not mean much around here and I consider everyone an equal, clients included.
At 417 I work with clients to provide direction on many different topics. Medicare and Investing for those clients who are on Medicare is my specific area of expertise. After five years in the insurance business I decided to get an investment license in 2006 as I like new challenges and felt that investments were the next logical challenge in my life.
Fast forward ten years or so and my purpose in the industry became quite clear to me. I would only work with clients who were retired or nearing retirement.
As the years have passed I have learned that making this decision has made my skill set unique in our community. If you are nearing retirement and need help with Medicare or have some of the questions that I answer every day, please let me know.
Questions I answer every day:
Why I work with retirees
You may ask why do I choose to only work with retirees? I think it all goes back to my childhood. Growing up I spent a lot of time with my Great Grandma (Shirley Wilson). She lived just around the corner from our house and when my parents went out or simply needed a sitter, my great granny was there. I also spent a lot of time with my mother’s father Grandpa Albert Wilson-who talked about Wal-Mart stock 50% of the time he was talking.
When I became a little older at say age 10, I got a paper route and many of my customers were retirees. The point that I am making here is that I spent a lot of time as a young boy around “older folks” and I have a great affinity for this segment of the population. I greatly enjoy hearing all of the stories that clients share with me and the life lessons that they teach me. So, all in all, I feel perfectly at home working with retirees, it reminds me of the good old days.
Nowadays I am married to my beautiful wife Erin and have two daughters Adeline (5)and Amelia (1). I always joke that God blessed us with two daughters to soften me up. Family is my life and I would not have it any other way.
