“A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play; his labor and his leisure; his mind and his body; his education and his recreation. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever he is doing, and leaves others to determine whether he is working or playing. To himself, he always appears to be doing both.” – Lawrence Pearsall Jacks
We help discerning and passionate professionals save time, alleviate resource-related anxiety, and pursue fulfillment through Financial Planning. Our clients are creative, hardworking, aspirational individuals who value their time, and desire to explore life from a place of abundance.
While we typically work with young professionals and entrepreneurs, we do not have an ‘ideal client’. We enjoy serving individuals from all walks of life who fall anywhere on the ‘spectrum of success’; however, our most fruitful engagements have been with individuals who are serious about pursuing their ideal-selves, have a passion to make a difference in the world, those who love to explore life’s possibilities, or who understand the value of collaboration and leveraging their resources.

“How can we create a layer of financial protection to ensure we are not knocked off course by aspects of life that are beyond our control?”
“What is the most effective way to handle stock options (business equity, RSUs, ISOs, etc.) to help minimize the tax bill and maximize flexibility?”
“As a professional with uneven cash flows from a base salary plus commissions, how do I build a strategy for resilience and growth as life unfolds when a significant portion of my income is uncertain?”
“I run a small business and haven’t been great at keeping cash flow separate. How should I develop a plan to help make sure that I’m clear on where I stand financially personally and professionally?”
“How can I strike a balance between optimizing my current lifestyle and life experiences with decisions that set my future-self up for success and opportunity?”
“We have a lot of student loans we want to pay off, but we also want to invest money and save for a down payment on our first home. How can we figure out our options to accomplishing these goal”
