Hourly Financial Planning

Financial planning is both an art and a science. The science part is about the numbers, generating reports and analyzing data. The artistic side of financial planning is all about listening and bringing the pieces of your situation together to create a masterpiece. The advisors at Compass know that education can lead to confidence. Our philosophy is all about learning together so you can make positive financial decisions for you and your family. Some advisors out there believe in making decisions for you and then talking you into their recommendation. Not at Compass. We listen, then we listen again, and finally we listen some more.


Every plan we assemble is unique to each client, from the reports and tools used to illustrate your situation to the personalized recommendations that make the plan practical to your life and circumstances. A holistic perspective produces decisions that fit the multidimensional lives we all lead. We would love to come alongside you in pursuit of your dreams.

Your financial plan may include (but is not limited to):

  • Net Worth Analysis

  • Estate Planning

  • Education Planning

  • Cash Flow Management Techniques

  • Retirement Income Planning

  • Insurance and Risk Analysis

  • Investment Evaluation and Strategy

Retirement Planning

Retirement planning is vital to one of the most significant life transitions — moving from a career into retirement.

Your retirement planning should address the following:

  • A process for shifting your assets from a growth mode to an income mode.
  • A realistic shift in assessing and confronting the risks of health care needs and long term care.
  • Some hypothetical models to show the 20-30 year impact of the immediate decisions you have to make.
  • A thorough understanding of the retirement lifestyle you desire and its impact on your net worth.

We have included a few tools here that we feel are both informative as well as helpful to your financial planning journey:
