We provide a customized service to help assure that the lifestyle you enjoy and the business you built can stay in place for as long as you desire.

Personal Planning

We incorporate personal planning into the business planning conversations. We are your “total wealth manager”, meaning that we assist you with managing your liquid wealth and your illiquid wealth, the wealth trapped in your business.

Identify Value Gap

We help you identify your “value gap”. This is the difference between what you receive for your business net of taxes and fees, and what you need to support your current lifestyle.

Professional Team

We work with your existing professionals and have also identified other specialized professionals that we call on when needed.
