If you expect to live a long-prosperous life, the it makes sense to prepare for the kind of future that you would like. This workshop is designed for those persons who donít already have a detailed, written financial plan in place. During this program, weíll help you develop an effective financial plan that meets your needs. So whether you are young or older, single or married, starting a family or just raising one, just starting life or well-established, buying a business or selling one, planning for retirement, or just a nice vacation, it's never too late to prepare for your future.
Whether you will enjoy your retirement or not might depend on the decisions that you make today.

Each person has different financial needs and requirements. This workshop will offer you specific advice and direction to help you advance your retirement planning.
Tax Planning & Savings
Just mentioning the word "taxes" will get most people's attention. Even country music star Willie Nelson is featured on TV ads for a tax preparation firm to emphasize the negative lessons of poor tax planning. This special tax planning workshop is designed to help you avoid being over-taxed and show you how to start saving you money. The average American spends little time in tax planning and, as a result, we pay more than is necessary in state and federal taxes. After all is said and done, one of the quickest ways to make money is to save more of what you presently earn. Don't you owe it to yourself to ensure that you are not giving more money to Uncle Sam than you have too? This workshop will introduce several important tax savings concepts to help you leverage your income and reduce your tax obligations.
Wealth Accumulation: A Long-Term Strategy
Risk, reward, and liquidity - they all play an important role in your investment decisions. Each investment vehicle that you choose has a different set of benefits.
