Financial Planning and Consulting Start with a Road Map During our lifetime we are constantly in the process of earning an income and handling the events that life throws at us. More often than not, most people carry on from day to day, without taking the time to either plan or coordinate our financial affairs. Financial issues and decisions tend to be compartmentalized and made in a vacuum. Many people, who would not dream of beginning a cross country journey without Google Maps(R) or a GPS system, never even consider the importance of having a “financial road map” during the many years they engage in earning and spending money. The financial planning process should produce just such a financial road map.You have probably heard the story describing the three kinds of people in this world. Those who make things happen, those who watch things happen and those who say ‘what happened’? Which kind of person are you now? Which kind do you want to be?Let’s face it; life is busy and more complicated. A financial plan can go a long way in helping you understand where you are and what you need to do to get where you want to be. It can find ways to help you accumulate more, create more tax efficiency along the way and reach a destination of financial comfort. If you don’t want to go it alone, we’ll take the time to understand your financial situation. We examine where you are financially today versus where you want to be in the future. We’ll create a detailed plan to help you get there, looking at all the aspects – investments, retirement, insurance, taxes, wealth preservation, estate planning, etc.
