Hi, I'm Eric

Founder and lead Financial Planner of Blake Wealth Management located in beautiful, historic downtown McKinney, Texas. Over the last 25 Years as a financial advisor, I have realized that my true passion is helping women plan for a successful retirement.

On average, women earn 82% of what their male counterparts earn. This often results in lower Social Security and pension benefits, less retirement savings, but a longer average life expectancy. Overcoming the gender pay gap requires better, smarter retirement planning. Maximizing Social Security benefits, minimizing taxes, and investing smarter are critical to living the retirement you deserve.

As you approach retirement, the decisions you need to make can appear intimidating and endless. The aim of our team is to simplify this decision-making process as much as possible.

We developed our Simply Retirement Roadmap™ Process to guide you through the retirement planning process and help you make an educated and informed decision as to whether we are the right firm to guide you through retirement. However, as we work through this process together, it will also give you a framework for evaluating other firms you may be considering.

Why It’s Essential for Women to Understand Money

If you’re like most women today, you are managing a multitude of responsibilities, constantly balancing the demands of work and family, health and exercise, and even trying to squeeze in a personal life. As multitaskers, women have learned that having a plan and learning to delegate are essential to accomplishing the things that are important to you.

What is Your Money Purpose?

For many women, understanding your purpose for your money can be the key to becoming more engaged in managing your investments. While financial goals are important, they are often too linear, impersonal and can feel restrictive. When you understand the purpose for your life, the things that are most important to you, the purpose for your money becomes clear. This clarity creates incredible motivation, inspiring you to become more engaged in your financial life.
