Financial planning is about identifying and working within given constraints to uncover effective solutions. Life is full of these constraints: time, money, circumstance etc. You cannot have an unlimited amount of everything so you have to be resourceful. This process requires creative thinking and a deep understanding of financial principles. It also requires ongoing communication and collaboration. Constraints change and solutions expire so it’s crucial to be able to adapt to the current environment.
A good financial advisor helps you with more than just investing. In these uncertain times, it is crucial to know how to save smart, spend smart, budget smart, earn smart, and also be smart about managing debt.

Why an ongoing relationship?
Because your future is uncertain and impossible to project. So, instead of making assumptions, we remain agile and dynamic. Think of us as your financial and life coach. As your life changes, your goals will evolve and we'll be there every step of the way, making changes as we see fit. We also don't want to overwhelm you with seemingly exhaustive list of action items. Rather, we focus on the most important issues first. We assess your most urgent need, formulate a plan to address it and, in time, move on to subsequent areas. Eventually, each aspect of your financial life will be carefully constructed. As your coach, I am here to help whenever necessary.
