John's financial background began fairly early on through helping both family members and others in the late 1980s with their financial and planning needs.

The 401K Man agency began in 2012 as an independent agency servicing the Midwest. Our Virtual Advisor Group was organized in 2020 to provides a wide variety of choices online as opposed to the often pushed one size fits all plan available at many of the larger financial or "brand" insurance companies & firms.  We offer many choices and solutions from basic insurance policies to comprehensive estate planning from dozens of available carriers online.

I am sure many of you grew up thinking that all you needed to retire comfortably was to get a great job with a good company and pay into your 401k for retirement. Back then you probably didn't know or realize that 401K plans would follow the markets ups and downs daily. Once you saw your 401K or retirement dip you knew you needed to do something but what?
