The Comprehensive Financial Planning Process
Establish and define the client-planner relationship with an initial client meeting.
This initial meeting is an opportunity to discuss your financial situation, goals, and areas where you might want our help. It is also an opportunity for you to get to know us and our services. It is an opportunity to see if we have a good fit for working together on such an important aspect of your life.
