Custom Approach to Financial Planning

The 3P Approach© to financial planning is a dynamic process we follow when meeting someone for the first time.  Our team developed and refined this proprietary approach through years of experience which has resulted in long-term clients and generational planning.  Our goal is to help you retire when you want to, or get to a “work-optional” lifestyle.

The process relies on a partnership philosophy.  We follow a series of steps and meetings that guide both of us through creating  your unique plan.  The 3P part means that together we Plan your financial future, help you Prosper, and ensure we Protect what you worked hard to build.

A Good Fit for Both of Us

Before entering into a partnership, we have learned that ensuring the potential for a satisfying relationship, mutual trust, and respect is paramount for successful planning.  We also realize we cannot be all things to all people.  We believe that an important aspect of any process is discovering if there is a good fit and whether we both determine to move ahead with the relationship.

Clients as Partners

Our clients are partners and together, we have a single goal of reaching your financial dreams today and in retirement.  With you as CEO, we work as your personal CFO to help ensure you stay on track by managing your fears and natural responses to them.  It is in these activities that you begin to see the results of the 3P Approach©.

  2. Fit Call – After a period of reflection, we connect again and discuss any possibility of moving forward
  3. Fact Finding – If we both agree there is a fit, we move on to the discovery phase of the process
  4. Development – This phase helps both of us gather information and apply several tools to create a flexible plan that is unique to you
  5. Implementation – After running your plan through a variety of scenarios, we move toward implementation
  6. Review – We continually review your plan as your life evolves, applying the 7 Pillars as needed
