Have you spent more time planning trips and vacations than you have on how you are going to maintain your lifestyle?
Let's be realistic. Planning your next travel adventure is much more enjoyable than planning for your future. Exotic trips are fun and relaxing. On the other hand when it comes to planning on how to protect your income or on how to help ensure a secure lifestyle, the most successful people can find that they are faced with uncertainty, confusion, and possibly even a twinge of fear which, in the end, makes everyone want to avoid planning altogether.
But, if you plan right, it doesn't have to be so hard. Whether protecting your income or planning for college expenses, your dream vacation home, retirement, and/or your legacy can be just as exciting as planning for that vacation that's got you up at night in anticipation. With My Advisor & Planner you can plan a financial future that will make you and your family excited about now and your upcoming years.
From your first meeting you'll notice the difference. This is all about you. Your goals, dreams, and concerns are thoroughly vetted before solutions are crafted. Next you'll discuss an analysis of your goals and compare them to your current financial assets. You'll then review an investment strategy designed to meet your risk tolerance.
As independent veteran wealth management advisors, we work as a team to help identify and address your unique needs related to your lifestyle and legacy goals. We deploy a planning-based approach with transparent, customized solutions. We also believe in balance and "give back" by actively sharing our time, talent, and treasure in both professional and social communities.
