“The key to success is playing the hand you were dealt as if it was the hand you wanted.”

Michael Blivens is a financial advisor at Northwestern Mutual where he helps individuals like yourself achieve their goals and dreams and wild ambitions through good sound financial planning that results in great security and independence.

Michael’s favorite part of his work is helping people take control of their destiny and being able to have a massive impact on individuals, families and businesses looking to plan for their financial futures.

Whether Michael is working with a family on planning for retirement or a young professional on saving and investing to help his or her money work for them rather than against them, his approach always stays the same.
