Stew Flaherty is the Founder and President of Flaherty Consulting Group, an independent financial advisory based in Westerville Ohio.

 

During his 40+ years as a financial advisor, Flaherty has worked with hundreds of individuals and families as they strive towards a more secure financial future and ultimately, a rewarding retirement. His flourishing professional practice is founded on core principles that facilitate a sensible, sustainable approach to successfully managing money.

 

Early in his career, Stew recognized that most financial plans suffered from an inherent flaw. While they looked good on paper, the plans lacked a practical connection to their clients’ lifestyles. To overcome this defect, Flaherty pioneered lifestyle financial consulting, an innovative strategy that provides the critical integration. Clients are able to make sound, realistic financial decisions that align with what is most important in their lives. Importantly, these decisions are made within a secure and nurturing environment.

 

Flaherty has had the privilege of working with multiple generations of families. Parents in these families pass on meaningful financial lessons to their children, such as the principle that successful investing begins not with products but with developing a sound money management process.

 

Flaherty’s leadership and consensus building skills gained national attention when his voluntary struggle to organize, fund and develop a women’s bobsled team resulted in the first ever U.S. Olympic Gold Medal in Women’s Bobsledding at the 2002 Winter Games in Salt Lake City. Despite starting out in 1996 with no sleds, uniforms, coaches, practice facilities, money or support, Flaherty was able to overcome immense obstacles and help inspire a group of enthusiastic young female recruits to achieve their seemingly impossible Olympic Gold dream just six years later.

 

Flaherty achieved this improbable “rags to riches” victory by applying the same principles he uses to help his clients pursue their financial dreams: assess the situation, set goals, create a plan and commit to it.

 

A former mayor and Citizen of the Year award winner in Westerville, Ohio, Stew and Marcia, his wife of 31 years, have four grown children and five grandchildren. Stew is an avid beekeeper, international traveller, photographer and reluctantly retired hockey player.

Ray Dalio
#1 New York Times Bestseller

“Significant...The book is both instructive and surprisingly moving.” —The New York Times

Ray Dalio, one of the world’s most successful investors and entrepreneurs, shares the unconventional principles that he’s developed, refined, and used over the past forty years to create unique results in both life and business—and which any person or organization can adopt to help achieve their goals.

In 1975, Ray Dalio founded an investment firm, Bridgewater Associates, out of his two-bedroom apartment in New York City. Forty years later, Bridgewater has made more money for its clients than any other hedge fund in history and grown into the fifth most important private company in the United States, according to Fortune magazine. Dalio himself has been named to Time magazine’s list of the 100 most influential people in the world. Along the way, Dalio discovered a set of unique principles that have led to Bridgewater’s exceptionally effective culture, which he describes as “an idea meritocracy that strives to achieve meaningful work and meaningful relationships through radical transparency.” It is these principles, and not anything special about Dalio—who grew up an ordinary kid in a middle-class Long Island neighborhood—that he believes are the reason behind his success.

In Principles, Dalio shares what he’s learned over the course of his remarkable career. He argues that life, management, economics, and investing can all be systemized into rules and understood like machines. The book’s hundreds of practical lessons, which are built around his cornerstones of “radical truth” and “radical transparency,” include Dalio laying out the most effective ways for individuals and organizations to make decisions, approach challenges, and build strong teams. He also describes the innovative tools the firm uses to bring an idea meritocracy to life, such as creating “baseball cards” for all employees that distill their strengths and weaknesses, and employing computerized decision-making systems to make believability-weighted decisions. While the book brims with novel ideas for organizations and institutions, Principles also offers a clear, straightforward approach to decision-making that Dalio believes anyone can apply, no matter what they’re seeking to achieve.

Here, from a man who has been called both “the Steve Jobs of investing” and “the philosopher king of the financial universe” (CIO magazine), is a rare opportunity to gain proven advice unlike anything you’ll find in the conventional business press.
Ric Edelman
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

New York Times bestselling author and legendary investment guru Ric Edelman reveals his forward-thinking guide on how technology and science will reshape the way we save, invest, and plan for the future.

Technology and science are evolving at a blistering, almost incomprehensible pace.

The Human Genome Project took eleven years and $2.7 billion dollars to complete. Today, it would take two days to finish, and cost less than getting a pizza delivered.

It’s estimated that forty percent of the current Fortune 500 companies will no longer exist by 2025.

In 2005, half a billion devices were connected to the Internet. By 2030, that number will reach one trillion.

The traditional paradigms of how we live, learn, and invest are shifting under our feet. Ric Edelman has seen the future, and he explains how smart investors can adapt and thrive in today’s changing marketplace. Using the same prophetic insight that has made him an iconic financial advisor, Edelman offers sound, practical investment advice through the lens of recent scientific and technological advancements. He illustrates how discoveries in robotics, nanotechnology, 3D printing, solar energy, biotechnology, and medicine will redefine our life expectancies, careers, and retirements. As we live and work longer, Edelman provides clear advice on how to recalibrate the way we save for college, invest during our careers, and plan for retirement.

The Truth About Your Future, featuring Edelman’s proven advice and trademark humor, is a timely, must-have guide for anyone serious about successfully adapting to the ever-evolving financial landscape.
