Feel organized and in control, optimize taxes, and have more discretionary time for LIFE.
As an executive, Jennifer has a six-figure income. She has many responsibilities and dreams:
Having time for LIFE and spending time with those who matter most
Optimizing taxes and eliminating debt while maximizing investment dollars
Building a “retire smart” plan for her future
There were 2 obstacles in her way preventing her from accomplishing these things:
She lacked time and execution in her plan.
Being a busy executive, Jennifer felt she did not have the capacity to plan for her own finances as she was managing a large corporation. Jennifer felt like she had the capability and really wanted to be involved but needed a partner who could help guide her and assist with her planning efforts, taking the lion share of the day-to-day off her shoulders and allowing her to have a greater level of involvement in her personal life.
After being turned away from the large brokerage firms, her priorities shifted. She needed an expert. More importantly, she needed someone she could trust 100% with her money.
Initially Jennifer came in with certain expectations, she expected to talk about products and fees, instead we listened.
Listened to her goals, pain points, frustrations, and most importantly her dreams. Her dreams of living a life she wanted through her working years while keeping an eye on her retirement someday. She wanted a plan, but a plan built for her and her situation.
1. We focused on developing a plan with the end in mind, creating a long term plan with Jennifer's specific goals being paramount. Organizing her investments to produce better investment results, optimizing taxes, and ensuring her income was protected.
2. We established her secure online client access to all of her accounts and her living-breathing plan. This created a sense of organization and calm that allowed her to, at a glance, look at her entire financial world and understand how things were working together, and created more TIME.
3. We helped her to establish her emergency reserve account, within a liquid money market, that was paying her a significantly higher interest rate than her local bank.
THIS WAS JUST THE BEGINNING
