Life’s better without stress.
Simplify your life knowing your financial pieces are in place.
We have seen first hand the impact that stress has on people’s lives and the improvement in their quality of life when given the tools to reduce that stress. Members of our team have taught in collaborative trainings to help doctors, therapists, and yogis help our communities address anxiety and stress. We believe strongly in reducing stress in finances, but also the rest of life.
When should I start?
Now! A lot of people, even extremely successful people, haven’t done much with their finances. We get it! It can also be easy to keep putting it off, because you don’t understand where to start.But wouldn’t you rather look back at your retirement planning or estate planning, and say I am so glad I started when I did, instead of I wish I had started earlier. All you can do is start where you are, but it’s all about starting.
How will we work together?
We start by having a conversation about where you are – what are you values, what are your goals, what are you looking for and what keeps you up at night, what causes you stress? Then we create a dynamic plan that covers all the financial essentials so that you feel confident, clear and have enough to live the life you want.
We go through a detailed process with you to understand and clarify your goals and values, review how your assets are currently aligned, and design the details of your financial present and future. You can visually see your plan, We’ll lay out your plan visually, view your wealth forecasts, and understand your retirement income strategy. But that’s just the starting point, not the endpoint.
We want you to build a plan you love, have the conversations you need, and use your wealth to do what matters to you. By only working with clients who are a great fit with our firm, we can provide excellent service and quick and effective communication.
When you need us we’ll be there for you. And we’ll check in with you, and help you stay on top of your important financial “checklist” items, so you don’t have to.
Can you handle the complexity of my situation?
We work with executives, business owners, lawyers, and doctors, and no matter the complexity, what we’ve found is that everyone feels some level of stress or worry around their money, and that clarity has helped provide ease around their finances.
Where we focus may be different based on your career or personal situation, but we review all aspects of your financial world. We aren’t going to use technical jargon, but instead break things down into a language you understand. We believe this understanding is essential in helping you feel okay and at ease.
Can I Make an Impact with My Money?
You should feel good about your money in whatever way that looks like for you. You can avoid companies who do things you don’t agree with, support the companies doing the work you believe in, and set up your own charitable strategies.
