Justin S. Widick

Financial Advisor

Background

Justin grew up on a farm ranch in Southwest Nebraska. Justin began his career as an advisor in 2000 and co-founded Asset Strategies in 2002. As an Investment Advisor Representative with Financial West Group, Justin has been helping Dave Ramsey and Ramsey Solutions fans with their investments for nearly 15 years because of his experience, integrity, and professionalism. Justin believes in sharing the same investment philosophies with his clients that Dave teaches on his program. He enjoys helping clients begin their journey to building wealth and also helping clients manage the wealth they’ve already accumulated or inherited.

 

Philosophy

Justin tries to put himself in his client’s shoes when making recommendations. He values trusted and honest relationships, and that is the kind of advisor he wants to be for his clients.  Additionally, Justin wants his clients to feel like they can come to him with all of their financial questions.  “Whether it is about investing with us, or making a personal financial decision outside of our company, I want my clients to feel comfortable talking to me about the decisions they are faced with.”

Justin is also knowledgeable and strives to educate his clients on the investing options they have. He does not believe “one size fits all”. “Each client has their own unique interests and situation, and I want to make sure my recommendations fit their individual goals.”

 

Personal

In his spare time, Justin enjoys coaching youth sports, reading, trips to the farm ranch, spending time with friends, and serving in his church.  He lives in Plattsmouth, Nebraska with his wife Jenny, daughters Rachel and Ashleigh, and son Braden.  Justin graduated from Hastings College with degrees in Business Administration and Economics.  He is a registered investment advisor representative and has series 6, 7, 63 & 66 registrations.

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.
-Theodore Roosevelt-

How Much Money Do You Need to Get Good Retirement Advice?

March 8th, 2016

If you’ve ever heard someone say, “If you have to ask how much it costs, you can’t afford it,” they were probably talking about some expensive toy or knick knack wealthy people (or people who want to seem wealthy) buy. Unfortunately, though, many people believe that expression also applies to investing advice. A recent survey of Americans shows that 63% of those who have never consulted an investing advisor put it off because they think they need thousands of dollars already saved just to schedule an appointment. More than half believe an advisor’s services will cost more than they can afford. The truth is personalized investment advice isn’t something only wealthy investors can take advantage of. Great advice is available no matter how much you have saved or how much you have to invest if you just know where to look. Myth #1: I Need at Least $50,000 to Even […]
