Our Approach

Our team is uniquely positioned to partner with you as you prepare financially for the unexpected and evaluate options should you change jobs, start a business or otherwise need to protect your income.

Becoming a Business Owner

Becoming a business owner can be both exhilarating and frightening. Be sure to map your strategy.

The Why

Ask yourself why you want to start or own a business, and identify the specific skills and expertise you have to lead your business to success.

The What

Which industry, product or service will you choose? Perhaps you wish to purchase an existing firm. What are you most knowlegeable in or passionate about?

The How

Will you work alone, or will you have help from a spouse, family member, partner or other employees?

The Financials

Budget for or secure funding for the planning stage as well as after you launch. We’ll help you determine what you need and provide the best options for funding your operation.

The Market

You might have what appears to be a sure thing – until it isn’t. Market research can help you determine your existing or potential competition, potential customers and the best ways to connect with them through methods like surveys and focus groups.

Changing Jobs

Whether you're leaving your job voluntarily or involuntarily, be sure to plan for the short and long-term financial impact.

Use your network

Research positions and companies and reach out to your network to connect with people who might be willing to provide their insight.

Save more money

Make sure you have enough in savings or an emergency fund to cover expenses during your job search. Aim for at least three to six months in expenses – more if you can.

Set goals

Determine what you want to accomplish with your career move. Perhaps you are seeking higher pay, better benefits, more responsibility, a higher profile, job flexibility or a chance to travel.

Prepare to negotiate

Consider what you are seeking in total compensation, and be prepared to respond if an offer falls short of your expectations.

Location

If you are interested in relocating for the right position, consider where you would be willing to move and what the cost of living would be.
