Brian Bickett is a fee-only financial advisor at Iron Mountain Financial Planning, LLC, located in Rapid City, SD

After graduating from SDSM&T with a degree in Mechanical Engineering, Brian worked with Navistar on the now world famous “smiling bumper” found on Medium Duty trucks.  His four years in Fort Wayne, Indiana working with unionized engineers was enlightening and cemented the perspective that life really is better in the West.  A good friend connected him with mining company in Gillette, Wyoming, where he worked as a Maintenance Planner at one mine and a Maintenance Supervisor at another.  Upon leaving the mines, a software consulting company reached out to him with an offer to travel North America visiting Mining and Transit companies training, implementing and customizing the software that he had become an expert in.  

It was at the beginning of all this time traveling that Brian stumbled upon a podcast from a well-known financial coach that put them on the path to getting their financial lives in order.  Brian buried himself in what he didn’t know at the time to be personal financial planning principles and mission including: cash flow management, managing debt, having the right types and amounts of insurance, traditional IRA’s, ROTH IRA’s, 401k investing, starting small businesses, real estate investing, managing taxes, business accounting and estate planning.

It was because they had put those financial principles and mission to work in their lives that they were in a financial position to pursue a path of helping others based upon mission, not financial benefits.  Eight years later, Brian stepped off of the Software Consulting airplane for the last time to pursue his mission to help others as a Financial Planner in Rapid City, South Dakota.  

Brian launched Iron Mountain Financial Planning, LLC to help you prepare for, transition to and live your best life in retirement.
