Financial Planning

What is Comprehensive Financial Planning?

Financial planning is an ongoing process to help you make sensible decisions about money that can help you work towards achieving your goals in life. It's not just about buying products like life insurance, an IRA, or stocks.

Marci Bair, CFP® is a fee-based CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ Professional, she and her team who adheres to the fiduciary and ethical standard of the CFP Board. This means we work for you and not an investment or insurance company.

We are concerned about your whole financial well-being not just selling a product. We will help you analyze what you own, help you figure out why you own it and how it works with your financial goals.

Just like with an iceberg in the ocean there is a lot below the surface you don’t see. The same is true with Financial Planning. As the image shows, there are a lot of major issues that impact your financial life that can only be addressed with a comprehensive Financial Plan.

Review our process below on how we work with our clients.

Our Process

As CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ Professionals, our process begins with getting to know you really well. We want to understand what makes you tick, and what is most important to you personally and financially.

We will create a safe and comfortable environment for you, so you can share not only your financial goals, but also topics that you may be concerned with or scared about. We believe your personal goals and passions are equally as important as your financial ones. Once we know your concerns and objectives, we can help create a custom financial plan to help you work towards accomplishing them.

Through our refined Bair Financial Planning 7 Step process we are able to help you identify your personal and financial goals. We will help you organize and prioritize your goals, then create a game plan to help you work towards accomplishing them. We will meet regularly throughout the years, and support you as your personal and professional life changes. We will set up your personal financial website to help you get organized and stay organized.
