About Me

Advisor | Author | Professional Explainer

In 2023, independent advisor, author, and professional explainer Brian Carden is celebrating 40 years in the insurance and financial services industries. For the benefit of his clients, he is licensed for life & health insurance, property & casualty insurance, and securities (Series 6, 63, 7, and 65), making him uniquely qualified to offer honest, open advice on virtually every insurance or financial need. As an independent advisor, Brian has access to to a diverse selection of providers and products, and is prepared to make suitable recommendations for you, your family, and your business.

Brian considers himself a “protection first, comprehensive financial advisor,” which was the catalyst for him to author his book Castles & Moats: Insurance, Investment, and Life Planning Simply Explained. His firm beliefs in asset allocation, behavioral finance, and investor behavior in an ever-changing landscape have now inspired him to expand into Medicare planning as a part of his overall practice. Although Brian no longer sells property & casualty insurance, his mantra for his practice remains true: If you’re going to build a castle of wealth, you need a moat of protection!

As my friend is getting ready to retire, he had several questions to ask me.

I hope it’s been a great 2023 for you. It has for me, but in different ways. As I’ve said on multiple occasions, Dad always taught me to work hard. He never taught me to play equally as hard. Retrospectively, there are several thoughts worth sharing.
