Coaching

Our Retirement Blueprint Process is the foundation for your financial plan and advisory relationship with Financial Coach.

Over the course of two complimentary meetings, we go deep into what makes you tick, your relationship with money, and your vision for the ideal retirement. We deliver to you specific feedback on the areas of your current “plan” that do not match your retirement vision. Our feedback is critical to understanding where you are, why you are off track, and how to get back on course.

Our Retirement Gameplan builds the framework for your financial plan upon the foundation established in the Blueprint process.

This multifaceted approach provides the context and roadmap for the most critical decisions you will face both pre – and post-retirement. The Gameplan consists of a series of planning “modules” focused on Investments, Income, Insurance, and Estate Planning. The culmination is a comprehensive financial plan and a recommended implementation strategy.

Once the Retirement Gameplan has been presented and reviewed, it is time for its implementation.

After signing a Client Agreement, we prepare the necessary documents to establish your investment, insurance, and estate plans. Executing your well thought-out retirement plan is really only the beginning of the advisory relationship with Financial Coach. Due to the significance of the changes being made, we remain deliberate and take pains to make the transition smooth and easy.

Next: Coaching

Your Financial Coach on-boarding team creates a custom service plan to meet your particular needs and expectations.

Since life and the markets have a way of throwing all of us curveballs,  we commit to a disciplined and consistent review regime. As the benchmarks for your ideal retirement continue to move, your team will be prepared to provide timely advice, education, and necessary course corrections. Money, investing, and “making it” should be the least of your worries¦Financial Coach is determined to lead you there.

Oh, how things have changed… and stayed the same.

In business and investing alike, there is often an obsession with the attempt to predict change when a better strategy would be to spot the time-proven basics that will continue to remain the same. Morgan Housel takes a look at Amazon, a company that has continued to succeed for 22 years by developing strategies based around the “things that are stable in time”.
