ABOUT TONY WALKER
Owner – TonyWalkerFinancial.com

 

Tony WalkerBeginning his financial career in 1984, Tony Walker has always considered himself a “contrarian” of sorts (his favorite book as a child was Arty the Smarty).

 

Not one to follow the herd, Tony’s professional experience in the financial trenches – forged over four different decades – has confirmed much of what Tony has always believed: “that it’s not about the money, but about the people.”

 

 

Tony has sold just about every financial product imaginable. Yet, on September 11, 2001 – what we now simply refer to as 9/11 – Tony came face-to-face with the realization that he was not wired for risk, but for safety.

 

With the realization that he made money whether client’s did or not, Tony decided to walk-away from a lucrative fee-based money management practice and return to his roots of guaranteed insurance contracts.

 

Tony also believed that it was time to set about the task of creating a simple and safe process that consumers could count on. After years of study and development, The WorryFree Retirement® was born – the rest is history.

 

 

Armed with his patented 3-prong approach of Man, Money & God, Tony wanted to create something unique to the Financial World — a process entrenched in an understanding of human behavior (man), economics (money) and ethics (God). Tony’s WorryFree Retirement® process and approach of Mailbox Money® gives consumers innovative ideas to help them be more worry-free.

 

 

His books include The WorryFree Retirement®, (Don’t) Follow the Herd®, and his latest work, The 3 Personalities of Money® – the first of its kind to explore his concept of “mind-over-money.”

 

 

A native and lifelong resident of the state of Kentucky, Tony’s offices are based in Bowling Green, Ky. He spends two days each week seeing people in the Louisville market. Besides a vast background in economics, he has degrees in Psychology and Broadcasting. From 1998 – 2004, Tony hosted the TV show, “Your Money Matters”.

 

From 2007-2014, he was the featured Retirement Specialist on the NBC affiliate WAVE3 Listens Live TV out of Louisville Kentucky. He can now be seen Sunday mornings on WMYO in Louisville at 7:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m., and on WBKO in Bowling Green at 6:30 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. as he host he weekly television program, The WorryFree Retirement®.

 

A devout Christian, Tony is married to his high school sweetheart, Susan. Together they enjoy their three children and four “time-consuming” dogs.
