But Why Is This Interview On a Financial Advising Site?


We are financial planners. So, why is a financial advisor not only talking about my 401k, investments and retirement options? Great question.


While we are absolutely interested in the financial success of our clients and growing their wealth, we believe we have failed as an organization if we have not equally led them to a more fulfilled life.

A better quality of living is so much more than excess of wealth and it is so easy to feel stuck in our lives. Emily is an incredible voice for pursuing life satisfaction and overcoming boundaries in multiple aspects to experience your greatest joys.

We believe in "quality of life" and that growing your wealth for the only purposes of acquring more won't lead you to feeling fulfilled.

It is one of the greatest joys of our business to meet with clients, hear their dreams, and then see them live our a plan to achieve their goals.

We are More Than Money because we believe in you enjoying your life AND growing your wealth.

This interview hopefully reminds you to take small steps toward the life you want and money may be a part of that for you. In our opinion, money is a tool to reaching the future that you want, but a better quality of life for you, your family, and our community can't be fully measured by the size of your bank accounts.
