Hi there and welcome to my blog!  In my business, I get to help so many people with solve their financial puzzles and that’s really what it is to me. I know it sounds nerdy, but every bank statement tells a story.  Maybe you are finally launching your new business venture, getting married, about to send your kid to college or about to retire.  Whatever your situation, chances are I have seen it before. 

I love helping my clients and noticed that there were so many times they looked at me and said, “I wish I had known about this!” So that’s what this is.  My way of helping MORE people know about the things that can help them reach their financial goals. As always, I need you know that there is no cookie-cutter approach to everything so I encourage you to work with a professional (like me!)  and/or become more savvy yourself !
