The NewRetirement Podcast
Steven Chen is the founder and CEO of the NewRetirement Podcast. It all began when his mother needed to borrow some money. He realized then that his mom desperately needed a long-term financial plan. He went to work with spreadsheets and financial documents to figure out how she could have the comfortable retirement she desired, including the ability to plan and manage her retirement income.2
