Guaranteeing lifestyle is the goal of financial planning. It starts with identifying your dreams, short term and long term goals. Financial planning includes what you are currently doing, should be doing or perhaps be doing differently to achieve your desired goals.
Accumulating wealth is one aspect of good planning. Having control of and protecting your assets and planning for your family in the event of illness, disability or death while you are healthy and alive is another part of good financial planning. Much frustration, stress and loss of value of assets can be avoided by taking the time to plan now for you and your family or other important people in your life.
Having as few assets as possible transferred to your estate can avoid probate fees and income tax. This allows you to pass on a larger legacy to your family or loved ones.
Financial planning is not static; it is a process that needs to be reviewed as events occur or change in your life. If you’ve taken the first steps in planning, then it is time to review what you have in place. If you haven’t started to plan, then now is the time.
Our goal is to assist individuals, families and small businesses in achieving their financial planning objectives. We can create a plan that meets your financial goals and life style. If you already are working on a financial plan I compliment you on taking an active course in planning for your future. We would be happy to meet with you and review your current plan.
