Aligning your spending with your values creates space to work, play and give.

Financial planning for solo business owners & their families.  

Every now and again an idyllic moment sneaks into your day. The light is just right, the temperature is perfect, you’re doing something you love and sharing it with the people you love most.

In that moment, the future seems so clear. Then the light shifts and the feeling fades. Doubts about the future creep in. You love what you do. You’ve got creative control, flexibility to set your schedule, time to pursue your passions.

But there are a few things missing -- like corporate benefits and a health plan you can rely on.

How do you fill the gaps and make sure you’re protected and prepared for the future?

It’s not about money, it’s about a fulfilling lifestyle.

Growing up I enjoyed my parents’ involvement in my life and activities. They were in the community, the PTA, the Little League board, and building a Boys & Girls’ club. While other parents spent long hours commuting to and from the city, my parents traded high power careers for businesses that fit the lifestyle they desired.

Knowing I wanted the same flexibility with my own family, I followed their example in 2009 and started my own solo-practice. I traded the security of a larger firm for the ability to coach my daughter’s soccer team and volunteer on community boards. I’ve never looked back.

I made a plan and I built the lifestyle I wanted all while securing the future stability of my family.

Now I help my clients build financial plans for their families that fit their entrepreneurial career choices. Working together we cut down the stress that comes with being out on your own and give you more time to pursue what you love.

With a financial plan in place, you’ll have more time, energy and confidence to enjoy the things you love most. You’ll spend less energy stressing over finances and you’ll let go of the guilt that can come with spending money.
