Ed Taylor spent his formative years in the military as a United States Marine and later received a commission in the United States Army as a Corps of Engineers Second Lieutenant. His service to our Nation took him to Iraq (Gulf War - Desert Shield / Desert Storm), Korea and myriad assignments in the United States. It was during this time that he gained a passion for helping others with their finances. Ed would assist those in his charge with obtaining loans, preparing financial statements and providing advice for preparing annual taxes. He left the military in 1998 but continued working for the federal government as an engineer. He continued to help associates, friends and family with their life and financial planning all the time working a full time position for the federal government. He merely continued to help; not for the money, but because he cared and had a passion for helping others. He received early retirement in January of 2014 from the Department of the Army as a federal civil servant with his career culminating as the Command Engineer for the Combined Arms Center and Fort Leavenworth; Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. He returned to East Tennessee to care for his momma until she ascended to Heaven that November. He returned to the Kansas City area and today he focuses on helping families address their financial issues and restructuring their resources to face the inevitable, the untimely loss of the family income. Ed lost his father at age seven and understands the demands and stresses put on single parents to raise a family when the primary income is lost. Though the $10,000 whole life insurance left by his dad was a substantial amount for an upper east Tennessee blue collar family in the 1960s, it clearly wasn't enough to properly prepare for the future. Ed brings a wealth of understanding and knowledge pertaining to new and seasoned professionals in the federal government sector, medical profession and today's blended families. His full understanding for the federal government is unique, in that, he was "part of the system" and is now a "retiree of the system". His specialized knowledge in this area provides individuals and families a resource that can integrate private and public sector retirement planning into a singular comprehensive plan. Furthermore, his keen insight into continuity and succession planning provides an overarching process to ensure each area of financial planning is reviewed, goals established and a viable pathway forward so individuals and families can make more space on their "Plate of Life"!
