We start with an introductory "Personal Needs Assessment" meeting, designed to allow you to share basic information about yourself and help us to understand your goals and objectives. From there, we move to our "Strategic Planning Phase" where we shape and define a tailored client-advisor relationship based on the scope of the work. We work closely and collaboratively to help educate you and bring clarity on economic and financial concepts. Our customized approach is designed to allow your goals and resources to work together.
