If Finding Financial Freedom Is The Finish Line

Your Purpose Should Be The Starting Point

When looking forward, everyone says to focus on your goals. Obtaining enough retirement income, buying a house, affording a child’s college tuition - whatever it is you want your wealth to help you achieve.

But Goals Aren’t What Make You, You.

Your purpose, your why, your drive. That’s what really matters.

Financial Planning With Your Purpose In Mind

Our process takes time, because developing a comprehensive, custom plan shouldn’t be rushed. Instead, we take the time needed to understand your deeper purpose and how your financial goals can work to achieve it.

As We Develop Your Financial Plan Together, Here’s What You Can Expect From Us:

Before we talk shop, we want you to get to know us a bit better. We’ll answer any questions you may have about our services, purpose-driven planning, fees and anything else on your mind. 

This 30-minute conversation can be done virtually, over the phone or in-person over coffee.

 Schedule Your Introductory Meeting

After deciding if we’re right for one another, we can begin working together to define your purpose. 

In doing so, we can then develop goals designed to help you achieve your greater purpose. Your advisor will create a comprehensive financial plan based on these goals.

Based on our previous discussions, your advisor will determine how every piece of your financial puzzle should work together to support your purpose. In doing so, we can work toward meeting your goals. 

Depending on the complexity of your situation, this analysis may encompass aspects of your legacy including an estate plan, wealth transfer and family governance.

Upon completion of our analysis and evaluation, we’ll provide you with a recommended plan of action designed to support your personal purpose. In doing so, it is our hope that we can help you move closer to reaching your goals and ultimately fulfilling your purpose. 

We’ll break down the actionable items on both your end and ours, and we’ll check-in regularly to hold both parties accountable.
