Planning Assessment

A three step introductory process works like this:

Step 1: A 15-20 minute phone call gives us a chance to discuss the planning you are looking to put in place, as well as gain a sense of whether we will also be a good fit as business partners to move forward. 

Step 2: Planning meeting #1: In person or virtually. During this one hour meeting we will focus in on your goals, needs, and concerns. A lot of questions, and information sharing. 

Step 3: Planning meeting #2: All of the information provided will be consolidated, and reviewed at which point I will offer my findings and recommendations. Essentially, this meeting will be used to simplify, and outline the process to move forward.

Under no circumstances will there be a hard sell for you to say yes. I am looking for long term partners, not transactions.
