Finally, we check to see that your finances match your values. The topics we address include income, expenses, debts, investments, risk exposure, insurance, taxes, and estate planning. .

Initial Inquiry

A brief (10-minute) phone call to see if we might be a fit for your needs. If so, then we can schedule a complimentary Get Acquainted Meeting. If not, we will try to refer you to someone who might be better suited to serve you.

Get Acquainted Meeting

During this is complimentary, 50-minute session, we will discuss your goals, your dreams, your concerns and review your present financial picture. This meeting is your opportunity to see if we are the right firm to deliver what you are seeking. If so, we outline the scope of the work to be produced and then quote you a fee for the job.

Interactive Goal Setting

We review your budget, spending, cash flow, emergency savings, clarify the information you have provided, refine your financial goals and objectives. We may also present our prelimnary work in progress and give you access to the planning software so you can collaborate in writing your plan.
