Can you answer the question, "If we were sitting with us in 5 years from today, what has to happen for you to feel good about the work you are about to do with Herod financial Services?"   

What do you think of when you think of your finances?  Do you go straight to panic mode?  Are you aware of financial planning but feel unknowledgeable?  Are you on top of things and want to make sure you continue to prepare wisely so your money doesn't run out?  Regardless of how you feel about money, a financial planner is an important partner in your life and a financial plan is a key document to ensure your financial resilience. 

Financial planning for families is not a one-time event.  A financial planning is not a document set in stone.  Planning is an ongoing process that allows your financial plan to evolve, change and respond as your life moves forward.   The role of a financial planner is that of a coach.  They create a plan for the game, life, you are about to play, live.  During the play, they will make changes, substitutions and additions, as needed to ensure the overall success of the game in each inning, period or quarter.   

Financial Planning for business owners is often two-sided: personal financial planning and planning for the business.
