How We Work

Our first priority is helping you take care of yourself and your family. We want to learn more about your personal situation, identify your dreams and goals, and understand your tolerance for risk. Long-term relationships that encourage open and honest communication have been the cornerstone of my foundation of success.

Getting Organized

Let's review your current financial standing.  Account statements, tax returns, insurance policies, budget, benefits and financial commitments.  In order to provide great advice and build a plan we will need to collect detailed information on your finances. Don't have it handy?  That's ok, we will help you get organized.

Initial Recommendations

At this meeting you will get an easy to read summary of initial recommendations.  These recommendations will be our guide to start working on your financial plan, goals and objectives.  Where should you start? What do you need to do?  How can we build on what you have accomplished so far and take it to the next level?  What actions do you need to take and when should you take them?  Initial recommendations will help you provide us with a list of action items to work on and areas of discussion to further define our financial plan. 

Education, Discussion and Implementation 

The next step explore the financial planning process and provide you with education, meaningful discussions, questions and ways to implement your plan.  As your guide we will take time to coach, teach and advise you through each step of the financial planning process.  We will have discussions, ask questions and take time to define our values, priorities and expectations.  Our initial financial planning engagements are a year in length.  This gives you time to learn, grow, gain confidence, change, challenge and modify behavior.  Lastly we will help you implement your plan.
