Michael Dose

Michael Dose “Mike” is the founder and owner of the Retirement Strategy Connection, a leading financial services organization. Mike brings over 30 years of experience in financial and retirement planning. Mike is best known for teaching classes at the Community Colleges extended studies. After many years of teaching the class “Financial Strategies for Successful Retirement” and “Making the Most of Social Security” he truly is the retirement professor

Mike’s passion for his client’s well-being has been the hallmark of his long and fruitful career. Mike’s practice was formed with the consideration of “sculpting your life” because the concept illustrates the power you have to shape your own future. Sculpting is a gradual, methodical process, just as shaping your financial future should be. As a financial planning professional, he thrives on personal interaction. Mike is eager to answer your questions and learn about your perspective. 

Mike has the unique ability to take complex financial concepts and break them down into their understandable components. Then take that newfound knowledge and communicate that into practical, useful ideas. Mike’s no-nonsense approach, his honesty, integrity and friendly demeanor have truly separated him from other advisors. 

Mike is a native of San Diego and is lucky to have family and friends going back to his elementary school years. As a San Diego native he feels blessed to be active in outdoor sports. He has always been active in the community, whether it was teaching blind children from the Braille institute how to water ski or sharing his intimate knowledge of the back country by leading group hikes. Mike is known for his willingness to share his knowledge, or lend a hand, or arm. Mike is a blood donor and to date has donated over 16 gallons. 

I would like to take this opportunity to invite you contact Mike for a complimentary consultation. At the very least you can secure a second opinion on your current financial situation. See for yourself why so many San Diego families have turned to Mike when they needed a trusted financial advisor.
