Many people find it difficult to talk about their financial life. We get that. To get started toward a better future, we help you determine a best course of action and what makes sense to do first.
What changes are you facing? What keeps you up at night? What choices do you have?
What decisions matter for your personal situation? Feeling overwhelmed? Where do you begin?
Financial planning is a big broad topic. It is important to know about those concepts, techniques and solutions that best fit your personal situation. Many things don't. What is good for one person isn't always good for another.
People sometimes create a plan by adding financial 'stuff' without knowing how it will affect what is already in place. While you cannot change the past, you can change course to a better future.
- What does your future look like if you take no action?
- Do you know what you own, why you own it and how you'll use it?
- How much income will you need in retirement? How much do you spend now?
- When will you take Social Security? Do you know your optimal start dates?
- Where will you live? Planning to downsize your home?
- How will your investments really convert to income?
- What lies on the road ahead? If there are detours, will you still get to your destination?
- What are the costs and limitations of Medicare? Have a plan for medical expenses?
- What is possible if you have all your resources working together in one holistic plan?
Organizing your financial life doesn’t have to be overwhelming. You will find that with a financial plan in order, you will be able to think more clearly about the future and make wiser decisions, allowing you to be free to enjoy life.
It all starts with a conversation. Let’s Talk.
