“The Talk With Aging Parents”

2017-03-09T22:47:39+00:00

By Cass Grange

2017-02-10T22:24:28+00:00

Our client, Darci McIntyre, the newly published romance novelist, submitted this piece on how empty nesting gave her the opportunity to pursue a hobby that had always interested her, and to meet a goal that she had always dreamed of.  While her newfound free time presented her with the opportunity, as you’ll see, it still […]

Putting Down Roots

2017-01-20T16:19:01+00:00

By Chaney Barton-Nichols

At the end of last year, my husband and I bought the first home that we visited in person.  You could say I have always had a knack for “love at first sight.”  For example, the wedding dress I wore when I got married happened to be the first wedding dress […]

In early November, six middle-aged guys set off on a challenging wilderness adventure that would take us deep into the heart of one of the most remote and inhospitable regions of the United States.

Moving to Retirement – A Client’s Perspective

2016-11-11T16:40:44+00:00

By Margaret Lewis

I had developed a formal financial retirement plan with my […]

The Power of Introductions

2016-11-05T00:30:56+00:00

By Cass Grange, Senior Advisor Associate and Chaney Barton-Nichols, Marketing Assistant

We frequently share that many of our clients come to us during times of transition.  Perhaps it’s children going off to college, parents growing older and passing, or retirement, a divorce, etc.  All these examples of transition require a great deal of planning – financially […]

It Can Start with a Conversation

2016-11-05T00:30:58+00:00

By Glenda Summers, CFP®

“Getting Your House in Order” – We often associate this with something that only sick or dying people should do. “We are in great shape – what’s the need?” or “We will do this later when we get old,” are thoughts many have when they hear this phrase. But what if we took […]
