About Beau Henderson And RichLife Advisors, Inc
“My role as a financial advisor and success coach is to help people transform their thinking and results around all things having to do with money and living rich so they can experience greater personal, professional, and economic confidence now and in the future.”
For anyone grappling with the current state of their finances or nervously stalking their 401Ks and portfolios, Beau Henderson’s approach to financial planning comes as a breath of fresh air.
“It is my goal to help people move toward the definition of a fulfilled life or a rich life. I want it to be, I want you to sit around the couch and be happy with your family. I want you to have $2 million in the bank, too, don’t get me wrong,” he laughs, “but too many times I think people are putting a cookie cutter on what they think should make you happy.”
As CEO and founder of RichLife Advisors, a full-service financial planning and coaching agency, Henderson offers more than 13 years of successful financial experience on retirement income planning alongside a refreshing, authentic approach to securing not just financial wealth, but spiritual, physical, and emotional health, too.
Henderson believes that too often, people fall into the trap of “buying what the world is selling.” His preferred method and philosophy — that having financial success doesn’t necessarily equate to life fulfillment — not only goes against his industry’s norm, but society’s as a whole.
And despite an industry average of 90% fail rate for financial advisors, Henderson has doubled his business twice in three years and secured
He started in the financial planning industry in 2000 after his dad passed away. His father, who had coached Henderson’s football teams throughout his entire childhood, had also served as his life coach.
“I was always a big kid so football was always something I did. My dad was my coach and a lot of my great memories are with him. That didn’t cost him anything but his time, but that is the most valuable memories I have,” Henderson says.
When his father passed away, he was left to help his mom tie up his father’s business finances and realized that it was not just something he was good at, but something he could do to truly help people.
“If there’s not people to help them there’s a lot of people that take advantage of them,” Henderson says.
He’s always been one to help others, he says.
“My mom still teases me saying that in kindergarten a couple kids in my class maybe were kind of outcasts, and I took care of them, stuck up for them,” he laughs. “I’ve always liked helping people.”
Helped them he did. For the first years of his career, Henderson worked his way up the proverbial ladder of success— securing a steady stream of clients, growing their portfolios alongside his own, and accumulating a wealth of knowledge and well, wealth. But he found the air at the top of his climb was starting to thin and he began questioning what having a “rich life” really meant.
Between his authentic approach, fresh philosophy and his experience working with over 3,000 clients, Henderson is finding success on a whole other level—for his clients, his employees and himself.
“It’s the piece of seeing people move towards their goals and objectives that to me is very rewarding,” he says. “I want to leave a legacy where I’ve felt that people live a healthy, wealthy, fulfilled life on purpose; that some people’s lives are better because I shared our mission and lived my personal definition of a rich life.”
