Step 2:  Gather Date

Step 3:  Analyze & evaluate your financial status

Step 4:  Develop a Plan

Step 5:  Implement the plan

Step 6:  Monitor the plan & make necessary adjustments


Set realistic  financial and personal goals.

Assess your current financial health by examining your assets, liabilities, income, insurance, taxes, investments and estate plan.

Develop a realistic, comprehensive plan to meet your financial goals by addressing financial weaknesses and building on financial strengths. 


Put your plan into action and monitor its progress.


Stay on track to meet changing goals, personal circumstances, stages of your life, products, markets, and tax laws. 


Making sure your assets can generate the retirement income stream you need today and keep up with the rising cost of living that inflation pressures can exert requires expert planning.

Helping you plan your income in the most tax efficient manner to meet your needs involves a well thought out plan to evaluate your special needs concerning risk of assets, liquidity needs for emergencies and feeling comfortable with the possible changes in your income needs from changes in the cost of where you live to changes in the cost of your health care.

2 questions can help you establish your risk comfort level.

First Question:

How would your lifestyle change if you had a 30 to 50% gain in your investment portfolio

Some might respond that they might spend or travel a little more, or just feel more secure.


Second Question:

How would your lifestyle change if you had a 30 to 50% loss in your investment portfolio?

Some people respond that they would be devastated or have to move to a smaller home or drop a club membership or some other dramatic change.
