​Because financial planning for retirement is an underserved market in financial media, Tim Parker finds himself wanting to help people looking for information in that area. Specifically Social Security, Medicare, 401(k), 403(b), and IRA planning, and estates. Tim also has a lot of published work on technical analysis and general stock picking. He doesn't just write about investing—he's an avid investor who enjoys all aspects of the market. Tim's TV is tuned to CNBC all day.


Tim received his master's degree in educational leadership from the University of Cincinnati.

Quote from Tim Parker

"I believe that we build wealth through financial discipline, but financial discipline first comes from education. Financial literacy isn't taught in school, yet it's an extremely complex topic that everybody, regardless of education, background, or bank account balance, has to get right. I love what I do because I can take complex topics and make them easy to understand."
