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.

The ultimate goal? To provide you meaningful insights and understanding into your own financial situation. Not so much what you already know, but from different perspectives into what you don't know and see YET. That's the purpose of better financial education. Here's just one example of a perspective for retirement planning for a couple that illustrates perspectives, insights and understanding: "What Are the Phases of Retirement?"
