How Long is Your Runway??

How Long is Your Runway??

September 21, 2022

Since Impel Wealth Management opened its doors more than five years ago, most of you have been aware that we are part of a national group comprised of more than 20 offices and over 55 advisors across the country. That group is known as the Horizon Advisor Network. 

Many of you have heard me share stories over the years about Horizon’s co-founder and managing partner, Peter J. Bush, CFP. Pete has been a close and trusted friend of mine for more than 20 years. Pete has two brothers who work with him at the firm, Andy Bush and Bill Bush, a.k.a. the 401(k) brothers.

Pete and Bill just authored a book titled The Runway Decade, Building a Pre-Retirement Flight Plan in Your 50’s.


Their website states the following about the book, which is available on

If you’re like many future retirees in their fifties, you’re facing a milestone in the next decade that can feel like an overwhelming deadline: retirement.

If you’re also a business owner or corporate executive, the pressure is greater because people outside your family depend on you. Are you prepared? Perhaps you have all the elements—robust savings, ample 401(k) investments, adequate insurance, even a rough exit plan at work—but you haven’t connected them in a comprehensive strategy.

In The Runway Decade, financial advisors Pete Bush and Bill Bush provide an insider’s look at how to simplify the complex process of planning for retirement. Their unique, holistic approach includes all areas of wealth, from social security benefits and Medicare coverage to charitable giving and tax planning. You can control your future—as long as you have the right tools.

You can find more information about their book and their unique and valuable thought process at the link below:

In addition to the Runway Decade book, Pete and Bill are also producing a podcast where they interview people in their 50’s about how they are preparing for retirement and future life. As you probably guessed, at 56 years old, I am squarely in the middle of my runway decade. I recently had the opportunity to be a guest on their podcast that premiered on August 10th. A link to the podcast is included below.

I am very blessed to be able to make a living doing what I love. Hopefully, my runway to retirement is still very long. We can continue to build the depth of our team and resources at Impel Wealth Management so that we can serve you and your family for years to come.

I had great fun sharing stories about growing up, what shaped my outlook and work ethic, and what the future may hold. I hope it is enjoyable for you as well. We thought it might bring a smile to your face as we all continue “Moving Life Forward”.
