I will be your coach and manage your financial game plan.

An evolving relationship

The New Client process is only the starting point of our relationship, and our work together is far from done. You chose me because you liked me, you trusted me, and you thought I have your best interests at heart. Additionally, from this point forward, it will be my responsibility and privilege to continually work on living up to your expectations. I will do my best to follow through by listening to you, responding to your needs, communicating opportunities, and guiding you and your family members along the path toward financial prosperity. I will do my best to return your calls/emails within 24 hours, if not sooner. I will proactively reach out to you throughout the year to stay up to date.  Furthermore, Decision Center Clients, will receive scheduled quarterly communications in addition to their annual review meeting.

ANNUAL REVIEW & UPDATES

Our official annual Meeting is an opportunity to get caught up on what has changed in the last 12 months. Although we will have been in contact since our last face to face meeting, this is a more formal approach to catching up. We will review Portfolio allocations and performance. We will look at your goals and determine if we are tracking well.  We will review your protection planning and your prior year tax return. We can evaluate your savings and spending and see if and adjustments might be necessary.  For Decision Center clients this process is made much easier because everything is already on their client portal.

Life Happens and things change. Changes cause us to rethink, reevaluate, and readjust our planning over time. If and when "stuff" happens, I am only a phone call away for advice. There might be some years where all we do is speak over the phone once or twice and have a quick annual review meeting.  Subsequently, there may be other years where there are some intense life events and we will be in contact on a very regular basis as we work through necessary steps. Together we will consider the potential impact of any changes in your circumstances and/or in the marketplace on your plan then modify it if appropriate. In my experience, below are just a few of the items I will be ready and able to help you with.
