Welcome to Better Financial Education

You, the client, are empowered to make decisions. Most people have a general idea of what they want to accomplish but don't know how to connect those ideas, goals and wishes with their personal finances to get there. You have real world goals and desires which have financial ramifications.

You're in charge ... I work in the background with you to guide you with how the pros and cons of choices may affect your decisions.

Some clients want guidance and then want to do the rest on their own. Others want both guidance, and assistance, to be sure more is done behind the scenes automatically for them and their investments earmarked for their goals and desires ... most importantly, for retirement. The choice is always yours; I help you decide and can work with, and for, you.

Do I work as a Fiduciary with you (please click here to see my signed oath)? Yes! And, I am a Fee-ONLY adviser (NAPFA Mission, Fiduciary Oath & Code of Ethics). Fiduciary 101. You may read about my Credentials, Registrations and More here, that are important to better serve you.

Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn. - Benjamin Franklin
