Financial Planning Can Change Your Life
Without Planning You May…
Get Hammered in Taxes
Tax preparation only looks backward at how to reduce taxes from last year. Without tax planning, you could pay hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxes over your retirement.
With Planning You Could…
Save in Lifetime Taxes
Keep more of your money by planning how to reduce taxes not just this year, but over your lifetime. We’ll pay every dime in taxes we owe, but let’s not leave a tip.
Lose Money in the Market
Everything changes when you start taking money OUT of retirement accounts instead of putting it IN. Without a plan, a temporary decline may become a permanent loss.
You only lose money when you sell low. By having a plan in place for when not if downturns occur, you can avoid permanent losses and preserve your money.
Run Out of Income
Will your retirement income survive 2-3 DECADES of rising costs? Without planning, your income may not keep up when the cost of everything you want and need to buy doubles or triples.
Create Lasting Income
With a Plan for 3D Retirement Income, your income will last longer than you, rise faster that the cost of living, and flex with your variable expenses.
How Do We Start?
We’ll meet to discuss your situation, your goals, and what you hope to accomplish. You can ask us questions and decide whether you could see working with us. Bring as much or as little information as you want to this first meeting.
Before you hire us, you’ll want to know if we can improve your situation. If the Discovery Meeting was comfortable for you, we’ll gather your data (statements, tax returns, etc.). We’ll sift through it so we know exactly what we’ll be able to do for you.
We’ll meet again, still with no cost or obligation, and we will share some strategies that will improve your specific situation, even if you don’t work with us. We’ll also quote you a fee, and you’ll leave knowing what you will get and what it will cost by working with us.
Sleep On It
Rushed decisions are bad decisions. If you are trusting us with your retirement, we want you to be confident in it. We insist that you sleep on it before deciding to hire us. Then you can let us know if you’d like to move forward and get the rest of your plan.
What do We Get?
Over 2-3 meetings, we’ll teach you, in plain English, about what you have and strategies to make it better. Even clients with limited prior financial knowledge will finally understand and be confident in their retirement.
Using eMoney, we’ll show you where you might be before and after we make changes to the strategy. Seeing the long-term impacts of today’s actions will help us to make better decisions and successfully retire.
We’ll deliver a 1-page action plan summarizing everything we need to do. No 120-page binder of boring charts and graphs. Just simple statements to help you reduce taxes, invest wisely, and retire secure.
Help Getting it Done
With a plan in hand, you may also choose to engage us to help you get it all done. From managing investments to preparing taxes, to even completing estate documents, we’ll help you go from “should” to “did.”
