Readers will appreciate the straightforward, easy to understand and actionable recommendations to increase assets, financial and non-monetary, during retirement.

About the Author

Bryan Sweet CLU®, ChFC®, MSFS
Founder and CEO, Sweet Financial Partners, Creator of The Dream Architect™ Cofounder, Dare to Dream Enterprises**

Author of 5 books – Dare to Dream: Design the Retirement You Can’t Wait to Wake Up To, Imagine. Act. Inspire. A Daily Journal, Give & Grow: Proven Strategies for Starting an Running and Effective Study Group, Dream Architecture – Building a Retirement Beyond What’s Possible and The Ultimate Financial Advisor.

Bryan is a cultivator of opportunity and that is reflected in his passion for serving the clients of Sweet Financial Partners. Beginning his financial services career in 1979, Bryan has done more than create lasting wealth plans for the wonderful clients we’ve been so fortunate to work with. He has worked to create a movement in this industry to help people realize just how much they are capable of, and just how much they can put their money to work for them.

A Fairmont native, Bryan earned his master’s degree in financial services from The American College in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, before embarking on what would be a lifelong career as a wealth management consultant. He established Sweet Financial Services in 1987 because he knew he wanted to create something lasting and impactful for the future. He saw an opportunity to help people not only accumulate wealth, but to maximize the opportunities and simplify the complexities that come with the distribution phase of life.

Bryan’s hunger for continued education and growth is something that will never be fully satisfied. Which means that he has created a culture at Sweet Financial that is centered on continued personal and professional growth. This is also reflected in his work with clients as you will often catch Bryan sharing the capability and potential that he sees in others.

It is because of Bryan's passion in working with some of his best clients that he decided to develop Dare to Dream Enterprises. He has been an avid member of Strategic Coach, which has helped provide the clarity he needed in his business. He found that he works best with high-net-worth business owners who have complex financial needs.

In working with these clients, helping move them toward living their retirement dreams, it became evident that all too often, people don't dream big enough. Dare to Dream Enterprises helps provide clarity in a world of chaos so that people are able to focus on the things in life that matter most to them. Dare to Dream supports business owners, women in transition, and others who are looking to build a bigger future and take control of their lives.
