2. Vision Meeting

In-Person or Virtual | 120 Min | Financial Life Planning Meeting

The first step in our Financial Life Planning process is to identify your “why.” We will use our What Matters Most exercise to discover your “Essential Elements”—the most important things you need to arrange your life and priorities around to have the life you really want. The work we do for this meeting will establish the foundation for all we do together!
