Our Unique Process

Phase 1:

EDUCATE

We will not only help you better understand what you currently have, but also examine everything that is available to you in order to ensure your dollars are working as efficiently as possible.

Phase 2:

EMPOWER

We want to empower you to make decisions with confidence. It’s not enough to have a good financial plan, you must understand the “why” and trust that the strategies will help you get to where you want to go.

Phase 3:

EXECUTE

Once your plan is in place, we are here to help you execute that plan. Whether you work with us or other professionals, we are here to guide you every step of the way.

Finding the right solution for your personal or business needs requires us to pay special attention to the circumstances of your unique situation. This is why our Financial Services Representatives take a needs-based approach to our insurance sales strategy. Our three-step process of analyzing, recommending, implementing your strategy will help ensure that you get on course to achieving your goals, and remain on course as life unfolds.


Phase 1 : Educate

Before we recommend any product or service, we ask questions and get a clear understanding of your financial goals and objectives. We use a secure method of collecting information on your current investments, insurance policies and budget. The documents we collect are not just to be evaluated, but we are trying to save our clients' money in every single way possible and have having this information is crucial to our process. We then analyze your insurance portfolio to identify any gaps that may exist in your policies.


Phase 2: Empower

We firmly believe that this is not our financial plan but our clients financial plan. Therefore, we do not tell our clients what to do but rather educate them, so they are empowered to make the best decisions for themselves. With each client we do a deep dive educational session on the following:

  • Cash flow management
  • Risk management: including emergency funds, employee benefits, car and home insurance, and life, disability and long-term care insurance.
  • Debt and leverage: How to pay down toxic debt, how to use other people's money to build your net worth, and how to use the right credit cards.
  • Investments: From old 401ks to new brokerage accounts, we want to make sure that every single dollar is working in unison with each other to build your wealth.


Phase 3: Execute

After the evaluation and education portions are done, we will be delivering an extremely comprehensive financial plan. This plan will help you evaluate where we currently are and what we need to do to get you where you want to be. Whereas we hope to get the evaluation and education portion done in a 2 to 3-month period, the execution phase is a lifetime exercise because the only thing that is constant is change.


Once our process is completed, our relationship will primarily consist of ongoing reviews. Because your financial situation is bound to change, we work with you over time through periodic reviews to help you monitor the strategies in place, and their capacity to continuously meet your goals.

Our "Why"

This is our why; what's yours?

So you can live to the fullest

While a sound financial plan certainly helps people reach their big life milestones, it can also manifest itself in the form of relieving stress in a relationship, allowing a family to spend more time with each other by staying on vacation one day longer, and/or finding extra dollars to donate to the church or charity of their choice.

So you can sleep better at night

We believe that everyone possesses the power and the right to create and realize their fullest lives, and that a sound financial planning helps turn those dreams into reality. We work with our clients to customize their financial plan in a way that prepares them for future obstacles, while helping them gain momentum towards their unique wants and needs. Our goal is that our clients can sleep better at night knowing that they are protected from life’s unknowns, and wake up each morning with the optimism that their tomorrows will be better than their yesterdays.

So you can feel confident about your plan

Everyone has a financial plan, the question is how accurate, comprehensive, and sound is it? A sound financial plan can act as a fire extinguisher to many issues that may arise, while ignoring financial planning might inflame these issues and add undo stress.
