1) Initial Meeting

This is the first step in establishing a fruitful relationship. This step is all about your desire to identify your values, goals, priorities, preferences, as well as your concerns. At this time, we will mutually establish what your expectations are for us and whether an ongoing partnership is the right fit.

2) Examination Phase

Based on our initial meeting, we now want to take a deeper dive into your situation. During this session we can begin to sketch a preliminary plan as we engage in a more comprehensive discussion about your personal and financial goals.

  • Identify client's current financial situation, their needs, wants and wishes.
  • Identify action items and prioritized to-do list
  • Ongoing collaboration to ensure financial plan developed is relevant, manageable, and comprehensive for client's situation

3) Detailed Planning

Now it is time to set you up with a plan. Based on the prior discussions, we can deliver an easy to follow roadmap that will help guide you towards your financial goals. We will specifically address the areas that are of greatest importance to you: retirement savings, early investment options, business investment/growth, risk management, insurance, home ownership, estate planning, and detail the steps needed to conquer each obstacle.
