It’s time for practical, real-world solutions that truly work for you—personal financial strategies based on unbiased research, sound principals and your particular circumstances. FINANCIAL PHILOSOPHY.
There is but one purpose of financial planning: to help people spend, save, invest, and insure wisely to achieve financial independence
. Strategic planning emphasizes a lifelong perspective and helps you structure your finances to meet the anticipated and the unexpected challenges ahead.
The financial sales and advice industries are not particularly interested in typical American families and individuals. Yet, these are precisely the people who will benefit most from expert financial coaching and advice. The big banks and large financial institutions cater almost exclusively to the highly affluent, and largely ignore the needs of everyone else—those for whom every dollar counts. The FocusYOU approach begins with understanding.
We take our time to learn about you, your goals, aspirations and expectations. We then evaluate your situation from a cross-disciplinary perspective to identify strategic gaps and planning opportunities. This approach ensures that your strategic plan is well coordinated and works effectively to meet your financial and life goals. A well-conceived strategic plan serves as your basis for sound, educated decisions and as a catalyst for action.
A well- executed plan will allow your resources to work for you, and save you time and frustration on the road to financial independence. INVESTMENT PHILOSOPHY.
