When you contact us, we'll provide a brief description of our services, philosophies, methodology and fee structure, and schedule a Get Acquainted Session (GA.)

Step 1: Community Outreach or Initial Inquiry

If our services appear to fit your needs, we'll schedule a Get Acquainted Session (on the phone or in person). You can review our introductory materials, or visit our web site if you wish to learn more, then contact us for Step 2.

The GA allows us to exchange information and further discuss which  services are right for you. We will also provide an estimated fee quote.

Step 2: Get Acquainted Meeting or Teleconference

When you decide to engage our services, we will give you a list of additional data or information which we will need to begin formulating your financial plan. One-half of the estimated total fee is due at the time of this engagement. 

When we receive your information, we begin to review and develop your financial plan. We prepare initial reports to discuss at our optional Step 4 meeting.

Step 3: Data Gathering and Initial Preparation

In Step 3, you gather the data requested, and complete your cash flow worksheet and risk tolerance questionnaire. You may fax or mail this information to us before our next meeting. Upon receipt of it, we will schedule our Step 4 meeting.

In this interactive meeting, we discuss and clarify the information you have provided. We continue to refine your financial goals and objectives. 

Step 4: Interactive Goal Setting Meeting or Teleconference

In this optional Interactive Goal Setting Meeting, you have another opportunity to clarify your current situation, financial goals and objectives. Come with any additional questions or concerns you may have.

We run plan scenarios as applicable. We conclude our research & analysis, and produce final reports. We add our recommendations to the plan.

Step 5: Analysis and Plan Formulation

As we move into Step 5, you schedule a meeting or teleconference 1 or 2 weeks after our Step 4 meeting. The ball is in our court in the interim. 

 We present and review your personal financial plan. We discuss all reports and provide you with a written summary of our specific recommendations.

Step 6: Presentation of Your Financial Plan

Congratulations! At this point, you will hold a personalized blueprint, custom designed to meet your financial goals. Full payment of the balance for actual fees incurred is due at the conclusion of your plan presentation meeting.

If you want our help with plan implementation or follow up, we will discuss what might be an appropriate approach. Periodic meetings & reviews may  be recommended.

Step 7: Plan Implementation and Follow Up

Proper implementation is crucial to reaching your financial goals. Whether you now implement and monitor the plan yourself, or engage us to provide a portion or all of these services for you, we urge prompt action.
