How do I get started?

So you’re ready to get started? Great! 

We believe successful outcomes are most often dependent on focus and consistency of process.  Our Comprehensive Financial Planning Process provides you with the framework for both.

    We’ll work closely with you to understand your goals, values, current financial status, income needs and the future you imagine for yourself.
  2. PLAN
    We’ll develop a written plan or proposal that will be presented to you, outlining recommended income, recommended strategies and benchmarks we’ll measure.
    We will select the tools and resources needed to implement your strategy and to help meet your unique needs and goals.
    We will regularly review the progress of your plan against benchmarks and changes in your life, and make adjustments as needed.


When we do Financial Planning, we focus on these areas in order:

We want to make sure the clients have a well-established plan in each area before we decide the appropriate investment process. We also recognize that whenever a change or adjustment is made in one of the 5 areas of planning that will have an impact on the others that may require adjusting as well.


We call it Comprehensive Financial Planning because it is an in depth look at your life and legacy beyond investments.
