John Gatewood and his team proudly support ALS Association

John Gatewood and his team are on a MISSION to help people become & remain financially self-reliant.


John's MESSAGE to clients is...

  • Forego consumption (Live within your income)
  • Save money
  • Pay down debt
  • Never be under-insured
  • Invest wisely

Ask Yourself...

  • How do I know if I am getting ahead?
  • Will I be able to retire without worrying about outliving my assets?
  • If I die or become disabled, will my family and business be okay?
  • What plans have I made to transition the business to my children, my employees, or an outside buyer?
  • Am I in the right investment strategy?

These are questions that potential clients frequently ask John Gatewood, a Wealth Management Advisor with Northwestern Mutual since 1981.

Are you like most of John Gatewood´s clients, business owners and professionals, wondering whether you will ever have enough time to plan your future?  Your success has come at a price—time, too busy to plan your future.  If you spend more time planning your vacation than you do your financial security, you are not alone.

Plan Now for Your Future

Financial success doesn't happen by chance. It has much more to do with choice. Transforming aspirations into actuality takes acumen, hard work, discipline and strategic financial planning.
