At Holistic Wealth Advisors, we call it Financial Wellness Strategies.
When you hear the phrase financial planning does it make you cringe? Do you think of a big binder full of graphs and words that you pay a lot of money for, read it once and never look at it again? Most people think of this as a tedious process and a lot of work so they never do it!
Financial wellness is about looking at your whole body of financial health. When you go to the Doctor do you expect a comprehensive review of your physical health? Of course you do. We look at financial planning in the same way.
We start with our Holistic Wealth Checkup. This process examines five key areas of your financial health which is designed to expose the areas of strength and weakness so you know and we know the “red flag” areas we need focus on. This comprehensive understanding of your current financial wellness gives both the client and us a clear path and strategy to move forward. Does it require a little time commitment on your part? Of course. The end result is that you will be empowered with a better understanding of your current state of financial health as well as a strategy to keep you financially healthy! We will be your partner to help you make the prudent decisions toward growing and maintaining your financial health and pursuing your financial goals.
What makes our Holistic Wealth Checkup different than other financial plans? We customize the Checkup based upon your age. If you are 50 years old, the areas we examine are slightly different than those of a 30 year old or a 70 year old. While there may be some similarities, we purposely examine specific areas that are critically important based upon your stage in life.
Areas we commonly cover in our Checkup include:
- Cash flow and budget planning
- Debt management (student loans, mortgage, credit cards)
- Tax planning strategies
- Estate planning and wealth transfer strategies
- Wealth management
- Investment analysis and asset allocation
- Retirement income planning
- Social Security planning
- Employer benefits review
- Small business & corporate benefits
