In a nutshell, we view the planning process as finding out where you want to go; where you are currently, and then we determine the optimal strategies to help you reach your destination. That may be a straight-line approach to achieving goals, but laying the foundation of a well-prepared financial plan can create the needed structure and clarity to deal with future uncertainty. Inevitable changes in financial circumstances and goals may require modifications to planned strategies. However, a solid plan foundation will make it easier to make changes if necessary to keep the focus on long-term objectives.
