Our mission is to help busy individuals, couples, and families discover what their unique financial jigsaw puzzle picture looks like. By identifying, organizing, and prioritizing each of their financial puzzle pieces, a picture emerges which embodies their financial values, beliefs, and goals.

Our practice is built on the principles of being a fiduciary, being independent, and being objective.

  • Fiduciary: We are duty-bound to put our clients’ interests ahead of our own.
  • Independent: No outside company exerts any pressure on us to sell anything to anyone.
  • Objective: We are committed to finding the best planning and investment opportunities that are custom fit to your overall needs.


The Five Pillars of Financial Planning

  • Cash Flow Planning • Common sense income and expense coordination.
  • Risk Management • Covering all aspects of various kinds of insurance.
  • Tax Planning • Minimize or eliminate current and future taxes as much as possible.
  • Investment Planning • Optimize the needed returns with the minimum amount of risk to achieve them.
  • Estate Planning • Making sure assets are transferred to whom you want while you’re still alive and after you’ve passed.


What do you love? What gives you meaning? What’s important to you?
Your financial decisions are intertwined with your priorities in life. Our advisory process starts with a foundation of relationship and conversation. Only when we’ve established a framework of trust do we move on to strategy and implementation.

Generational Solutions • Each of you has different needs, goals, and concerns when it comes to your life, and especially your financial life.
Plus, the differences between the various generations are more pronounced now than ever before. We take all this into consideration when we tailor our approach to Baby boomers, Generation X, and Millennials.

Suddenly Single • Becoming widowed or divorced can throw your life and finances into a tailspin. Managing the transition from being married to being single means crossing a lot of items off a financial checklist — at exactly the time when you’re least equipped to deal with them. It can also mean having to master new financial skills that may not have been part of your duties while married.

  • Investment Services • We employ an investment strategy that looks for those investment ideas that have the greatest relative chance of outperforming other investment choices. This strategy provides a positive expectancy system designed for consistent investment returns.

Information is everywhere. 24/7/365. Data. Big data. You can’t get away from it. It certainly has the potential for overload, at least some of the time. But just because it exists doesn’t necessarily make it meaningful. There is so much more information available to everyone today than there was to me when I started in the profession. WAY MORE!

That’s where knowledge begins to come into play and becomes a highly valuable asset. Understanding the information and when and where to use it is the start of making sense of the world around us. It takes some time to develop this knowledge, to learn to differentiate, and to learn what is the most important information for the particular situation you are in at certain points in time.

Wisdom marries the first two with experience. And for most of us, there is no substitute for experience.

From this we hopefully arrive at the point where we can not only understand things for ourselves, but begin to impart that wisdom to help others and assist them with making good financial choices.
