Let’s do this! How does this work?

Step 1

Schedule a free, 30-minute phone call using the button at the top. I'll listen to your story.  If I think I can help, we’ll schedule a second meeting and go into more detail.  If we aren’t a good fit, I will introduce you to a firm that is better suited to your needs.

Step 2

After we have discussed the planning process, our expectations and specific recommendations to you, I'll offer my solution and the fee to work together. At the end of this meeting I'll will ask if you would like to begin working with our firm or if you would like to sleep on it. If it is yes, on to Step 3.

Step 3

We set 3 initial meetings. We talk, a lot, about you, discover goals, hopes and deams.  I collect a lot of information so I can understand where you are today. We'll create a priority action plan bringing it all together.  We work on completing items throughout the year so that you can achieve what is important to you.

Comprehensive Retirement Planning & Fiduciary Advice

Retirement might be on your radar, or maybe it’s more about being able to better care for yourself or loved ones. We create a plan so that you can feel heard, crush fear, and have 100% confidence in your financial decisions, now and in the future. 

Investment Management

Save, invest and build wealth to fund your life and the things that are most important to you. We use world class institutional custodians and money managers, cutting-edge technology to manage and view your investments, and create a customized investment program specific to you.

Tax Prep and Planning

Taxes, now and in the future, will impact how much money you will have in retirement. RMDs, QCDs, DAF, mega backdoor Roth, W-2, pre or post tax, 401k or IRA, Safe Harbor, bunching...could just as well be Swahili. Having a tax smart financial team on your side will increase your chance of success.
