Spencer McMurtry

Founder & Community Manager

Born and raised in Scottsbluff, Nebraska, Spencer McMurtry began his entrepreneurial ventures at the age of 15, selling temporary airbrush tattoos at fairs and festivals. By senior year of high school, he bought himself a brand new BMW. When he graduated, he opted for the less traditional path of entrepreneurship over attending university. 

The move paid off. In 2008, Spencer started a sign and vehicle wrap company called Infinite Graphics, and just 3 years after graduation, he built it to be the largest sign company in the region and eventually sold it to a Fortune 500 company. Spencer's rapid success earned him a promotion as an instructor at a business school.

Ultimately, Infinite Graphics taught him the importance of building systems, while his time as a business school instructor trained him to be an efficient communicator. Combining the two, he founded a consulting business, The Systems Method, where he coaches some of the world's top executives in various industries. While he enjoyed 1-on-1 coaching and consulting, Spencer wanted to build a more scalable system. 

After studying rigorous analytical data, he determined that the demographic requiring the most guidance were individuals approaching retirement as they embarked on a new and unknown chapter of their lives. As such, Planning Community was born to provide those who are nearing retirement a free platform to gain exclusive access and advice from like-minded people and professionals. 

In his free time, Spencer enjoys hiking and traveling. He has lived in places like Cape Town, South Africa, and Bali, Indonesia.
