About Brian Tegtmeyer, CFP®, CKA®

Brian Tegtmeyer, CFP® is a fee-only financial planner based out of Columbus, OH. Brian started Truly Prosper Financial Planning to provide a more thoughtful approach to retirement planning.

Before starting Truly Prosper, Brian worked for over ten years at a fee-only wealth management firm. He was able to gain valuable experience developing detailed retirement plans, tax projections, and social security strategies. He enjoyed the work and appreciated his time there, but felt called to create a different kind of financial planning business.

In 2020, Truly Prosper was founded on the idea that retirement planning should be available to all people, not just the wealthy. That pricing should be based on the service received and not the size of the investment portfolio. That financial life planning is the key to helping clients live the best life possible with the money they have.

When Brian’s not working, he enjoys spending time with his wife and three kids. They love playing board games, going for adventure walks, or playing a game of backyard kickball.

About Larry Pershing, CFP®, RMA®

Hi, I’m Larry Pershing, CFP® RMA®, a flat fee financial advisor. I focus on helping people age 55+ with their retirement planning and investment management needs for a FLAT fee.

Having worked in various wealth management firms in my career, I was surprised to discover many firms try to service everyone, which leads them to being average for all. Some are more concerned with amassing client assets than providing customized recommendations.

I started Optimum Retirement Planning because I saw a need for specialists to help clients navigate the complex and challenging financial aspects of retirement. Our offering is different. We don’t work with everyone. We specialize in helping those who are close to and in retirement. We apply the latest financial research for retirement to help answer your complex financial questions.

Optimum Retirement Planning is a flat fee financial advisor. This means we charge differently than most financial advisors. We offer retirement planning and investment management for a flat fee. For too long retirees have been overpaying for financial advice due to large commissions and/or being charged a percentage of their assets.

When I’m not in the office, I’m on a tennis court, reading a book (finance or science fiction), or spending time with family and friends. I also volunteer for AARP sponsored events that help seniors receive complimentary financial advice. While I live in Chicago, I was born and raised in Los Angeles. I return often, especially during winter. You can take the guy out of California, but you can’t take the California out of the guy!

Matt Cooley, CFP®

About Matt Cooley, CFP®

I love helping others and I’m blessed with the opportunity to do so every single day as a financial advisor.

​I’ve worked for some of the most well-respected firms in the financial services industry and although I’m grateful for each of my previous experiences, I envisioned something different.

As a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™,  I’ve made a commitment to technical excellence and the highest ethical standards in our industry. My mission is to leverage my knowledge and expertise to provide my clients with peace of mind, allowing them the freedom to focus on family, friends, and community, and to enjoy the things most important to them.

On a more personal level, I live in the great city of Boise, Idaho with my wife Kaitlin and our two dogs, Rory and Harper. I enjoy sports, traveling, cooking, and taking advantage of the abundant outdoor activities Idaho has to offer. In addition to my Board Member responsibilities at Metro Community Services, I also spend time volunteering in the local sports community.

Although I’m a proud, double-major graduate from the College of Business and Economics at Boise State University, I strive for inclusion and will also work with Vandals, too.

In addition to helping clients keep more of and grow their hard-earned wealth, I believe financial advisors have a platform to inspire clients to live a healthier, happier, and more fulfilled life. I’ve been inspired by others to live life fully and want nothing more than to pay that feeling forward.

Are you ready to be inspired?

About Brett Koeppel, CFP®


I’m Brett, and I’m glad you’re here.

I’m a proud born and raised Buffalonian passionate about helping others make the most of their money and their lives as they navigate the transition into retirement.

After spending the first eight years of my career with a large wealth management firm, I recognized the need in Buffalo for real financial planning that was focused on the client, not the company, and delivered in a way that people could understand.

In 2019, I founded Eudaimonia Wealth; a fee-only financial planning firm in Buffalo, NY dedicated to helping local families retire on their terms by providing independent, objective advice.

At Eudaimonia Wealth, we realize we can’t be all things to all people and don’t pretend to be. We specialize in helping people who are at or near retirement and need help putting the pieces together. We partner with families to help them generate income from their savings, optimize their investments, and create a tax-efficient distribution plan that supports their needs.

Eudaimonia (pronounced you-day-mo-nia) is a term from Greek philosophy used to describe an ultimate state that could be achieved by living a life of meaning, purpose, and fulfillment. It was considered to be a state of “peak performance in the art of living,” and represents to the core what I believe real financial planning is all about.
