FEE-ONLY | FULL-TIME FIDUCIARY | WHOLLY INDEPENDENT
FINANCIAL PLANNING WITHOUT JUDGMENT
PROVIDING HOLISTIC FINANCIAL AND TAX PLANNING TO HIGHLY COMPENSATED EMPLOYEES WITH LOCAL AND VIRTUAL SERVICES
THE FIRST QUESTION WE USUALLY GET:
"WHAT ISSUES SHOULD I CONSIDER REGARDING MY INCENTIVE STOCK OPTIONS?"
Our clients are Highly Compensated Employees (HCEs) who make $150,000 or more per year and can save money but are subject to different 401(k) rules. Retirement plans, HSAs, stock options, IRAs, eliminating debt, and reducing taxes all require planning. We normally see high-net-worth individuals come to us who have gathered assets along the way due to diligent savings, but ask themselves, “have we done the best we could?”.
Where do you start? Our clients are looking for holistic and comprehensive Financial Planning that encompasses both Tax and Estate Planning. Our clients have an expectation that all of this works together in harmony.
Every decision we make is framed in how we can deepen value for you. You own the relationship and that is why this website was created for you, the clients, not us!

How Our Pricing Works
We believe transparency & trust are at the center of any healthy relationship.
That's why we've laid out exactly how our subscription works here.
Onboarding Fee: $999-$3,000
Most onboarding fees are $999-$1,500. The amount depends on complexity. This fee is charged upon engagement.
Annual Retainer: Begins at $300/Month
Most clients' annual subscription is determined by the sum of 0.5-1.0% of gross household income plus 0.0-0.5% of net worth. The exact percentages of these figures are determined by the complexity of the situation.
In certain situations when assets and income are not an adequate gauge of the work needed, we will collaborate to agree upon an appropriate subscription. We always notify you in advance of any cost changes.
Reasoning Behind Our Fees
Our goal is simply to have a fee that is fair for both of us. We believe paying a small portion of your income and assets each year to have advice designed to help you manage the rest significantly better is worth it. This can assist High Earner, Not Rich Yet (HENRY) along with our legacy clients who have high net worth but lower incomes.

WHAT'S YOUR RISK NUMBER?
FIVE MINUTES IS ALL IT TAKES TO FIND OUT
The first step is to answer a 5-minute questionnaire that covers topics such as portfolio size, top financial goals, and what you're willing to risk for potential gains. Then we'll pinpoint your exact Risk Number to guide our decision making process
After pinpointing your Risk Number, we'll craft a portfolio that aligns with your personal preferences and priorities, allowing you to feel comfortable with your expected outcomes. The resulting proposed portfolio will include projections for the potential gains and losses we should expect over time.
We will also review your progress toward your financial goals by building a Retirement Map. When we are finished, you'll better understand what we can do to increase the probability of success.
