How We Work Together

  1. Complete a five-minute online Intro Questionnaire

    We offer everyone a complimentary, no-strings-attached Exploration Meeting where we answer your questions and get to know each other. To provide a bit of background prior to our meeting together, we ask everyone to first complete a brief online Intro Questionnaire.

  2. Schedule your FREE Exploration Meeting

    Next, we’ll schedule your complimentary, no-pressure Exploration Meeting with one of our Senior Advisors. Bring your questions—nothing is off limits! After our meeting, we will let you know exactly how we could help and how much it will cost. As a thank you, we’ll donate $50 to a charity of your choice—whether you become a client or not!

  3. Create and implement your Financial LifePlan

    Finally, once we receive a “yes, let’s work together!” from you, we get to work building your Financial LifePlan. However, a plan is only useful if it’s properly implemented! So, we walk alongside you as your life unfolds to help you stay on track, navigate important life decisions, and correct course as needed.

You first, always.

We have chosen a fiduciary business model that requires us to hold your interests above all others. As an independent Registered Investment Advisor (RIA), our success is aligned with yours. All individual LifeGuide employees are paid a salary and do not receive commissions.

Our purpose is simple.

We help you experience peace, realize freedom, and maximize your impact by providing you wisdom for life’s most important decisions.

We understand it's about more than money.

Life should be exciting, fun, and deeply fulfilling! Which is why we see money not as the end goal in itself, but simply as a tool to meet needs and turn goals into reality. Offering biblically based financial wisdom, we help our clients lean more fully into the lives they want to live and the causes they want to champion. We believe wise financial management produces peace, freedom, and impact—leading to a deep sense of fulfillment.

You have a trusted team.

We assign every client to an advisory team led by a partner of the firm. We believe that four heads are better than one. Our team approach enables us to serve you better. You won’t be left on your own if an advisor isn’t available.

We're here for you and your family.

We don’t just create a financial plan that sits on your shelf; we help you make wise decisions, manage the details, and turn your plans into reality. We answer your calls, return your emails, and talk in terms you understand. We walk with you to help keep you on the path to your goals while helping you pass wisdom and values to your children and grandchildren along the way. In the event of a loss, we are committed to caring for your surviving spouse and family members.

We look at your entire picture.

Your future is too important, and financial matters are too complex for cookie cutter answers or simplistic rules of thumb. Wise decision making must consider the tradeoffs of the many interrelated areas of your financial life, and our advisory teams bring the technical competence and curious resolve to get to the right answers for you. We continually educate our advisors, use industry-leading planning technologies, and take the time necessary to make recommendations that are specific to your unique situation.

Fees you can understand.

We have created a flexible service and fee model to allow us to provide you with the services that you need. Our engagement model allows us to work with you whether you have an abundance of resources or are just starting out. We are transparent with our clients about our fees and strive to provide the most value for our services, expertise, and care as possible. Click here for more details.
