Phase 1 — Beginnings
This phase of life involved lots of new beginnings, including finishing education, starting a career and settling in for the second phase of life. Creating your budget using the Three Circle Savings Plan creates the habits which are the building blocks for a more comprehensive plan as life expands in its demands.
Phase 2 — Slammed N’ Messy
During this phase, savings continue and a comprehensive plan is developed which supplements direction into areas of protection needed, such as life insurance, health insurance, estate & tax planning and much more.
Phase 3 — Simple Pleasures
You’ve made it and congratulations! This phase of life fully allows you to enjoy all you have saved for and dreamed of doing. Giving back and spending cherished time with friends and family enrich this phase of life.

Investors of all stripes care about the world our children will inherit. While Socially Responsible Investing has been around for decades, new innovations are exploding into the marketplace so we can genuinely Wrap Your Conscience Around Your Capital™. It begins with the ancient belief that individually small moves really add up with the other like-minded investors. We can integrate this approach into your strategy and maintain the same data-driven process that is the hallmark of modern portfolio science.
As successful investors you share the desire to preserve your wealth and to impact things larger than yourself and generations to come. It’s also important for you to pass on the values and beliefs that are inseparable from the wealth you’ve accumulated or created. These principles are at the heart of who you are and part of your aspiration to the life you deem well-lived, a worthy example for others to follow.
One of the greatest risks to your legacy may be the financial inexperience of your heirs. That’s why financial education for children and grandchildren is a critical piece we offer to help realize your intentions of your family wealth legacy.
You feel blessed and you want to pay it forward. Today, modern tools abound for giving back in triple-win ways. Whether a trust, foundation or donor-advised fund, these tools create a strategy that’s best aligned to fulfill your deepest heart’s desire.
