Our first meeting provides an opportunity to explore whether our approach is a good fit with your situation. I will ask questions about your financial goals and what is important in your life. Also, I’ll explain how I use the CFO process to help manage my clients entire financial situation.
As with any plan, progress comes faster when you have a goal to work toward. I’ll help set financial goals that make sense given the personal and business information we revealed in the Discovery Process

Based on my analysis, I’ll recommend strategies for tackling the complex issues you face. You’ll sleep better at night knowing that we’ve organized your financial affairs and taken care of important financial issues such as preparing for business succession and ensuring you are not overpaying taxes.
