COLLABORATIVE CONNECTIONS Jeremy Neis with Retirement Evolutions Shatha Barbour with Hera Hub Phoenix and Karen Nowicki with Phoenix Business RadioX
Retirement Evolutions concentrates on “People Centered Wealth Management”. Finances are just one dynamic of wealth and so Retirement Evolutions is there to help guide you to “invest in what you value.” Many people value not creating messes for loved ones. Some people value the thought of a secure and comfortable retirement.
While other people value supporting organizations that are contributing to making the world a better place through impact / socially responsible investing and efficient philanthropy. Whatever you happen to value at this phase of life, they will help you create a comprehensive map that brings all the elements of your wealth into one clearly focused picture and help you take action toward your goals.
Jeremy Neis is an Investment Advisor with Retirement Evolutions and a small business operator fueled by the desire to enrich the life experience. He grew up in the Chicago area and chased the sun to get a degree at the University of Arizona in human and organizational communications. After doing so, he returned to Illinois where over the next 15 years he would find joy in co-launching and growing a technology solutions company and establishing a family.
In 2014 he returned to the desert to join his current venture. Jeremy is a proud contributor to the Conscious Capitalism movement as he views it as a powerful vehicle to bring about greater prosperity and reduced suffering for our human family.
Over his career he has had the privilege to work closely with hundreds of different enterprises across many markets and industries. A common theme emerges among those firms that he’s seen excel and that is to be great not just with what they are bringing to market, but also with the manner in which they are doing so.

Shatha started her journey of opening Hera Hub Phoenix in the fall of 2016.
