About Me

Hi, I'm Taylor Schulte. I worked for large wealth management firms for half of my career.

They spent more time talking about how to make the firm more money than how to make clients more money. I set out to change that.

In 2014, I launched Define Financial. We are an award-winning San Diego Financial Advisor team dedicated to retirement and tax planning for people over age 50.

We help our clients:

⮕ Reduce Taxes
⮕ Invest Smarter
⮕ Make Work Optional

I’ve been recognized as the #2 Independent Financial Advisor in 2022 by Investopedia and a Top RIA in America byFA Mag.

I’m also:

🎙️ Host of the Stay Wealthy Retirement Podcast (Forbes Top 10)
💥 Founder of the Retirement Podcast Network
📝 Regular Contributor to the Media

When I’m not perfecting retirement plans, you can find me traveling with my wife and kids, searching for the next best carne asada burrito, or trying to master Adam Scott’s golf swing.
