Is a career in financial services the right fit for you?



Financial Planning Like a Jigsaw Puzzle

"Imagine that you are starting to work on a jigsaw puzzle. Once you have dumped the pieces onto the table, what do you do next? Most folks would place the edge pieces, or sort the pieces by color. As your financial planner, I would suggest that we should look at the picture on the top of the box. The picture gives meaning to all those pieces: the green ones are grass; the purple ones are parts of a shirt. Now we have some context for putting the puzzle together. In financial planning, the picture on the box top represents the life our client wants to have right now, later, and years from now. The picture includes the goals, hopes, values, and all they want to have, to do, and to be. The pieces of our planning puzzle are the financial piece -- current income, debts, net worth, taxes, savings, investments, etc. Every time we meet, we update the picture on the box top as surely as we update our records and understanding of the pieces. Our job is to help our clients create their picture on the box top by helping them paint that picture; then to make sure they have the pieces they need and that they pieces fit together."*
