FINANCIAL PLANNING SERVICES
Organize your cash flow. Make educated financial decisions. Reach your goals.
Every financial plan is unique, so we start with a discovery process. The first step in our financial planning services is a brief 15 minute phone call to get acquainted and see if we may be a good team. No cost and no obligations. While we are located in Carlsbad, California, just north of San Diego, we can work with you virtually anywhere.
WHAT TO EXPECT
In-Person or Virtual Meeting
After our initial phone call, we schedule a 45 minute initial meeting to get started. We will review your current financial progress in detail and answer your questions about our financial planning services. If we both agree that Centered Financial can assist you, we define the scope of our work for you in a financial planning services agreement and schedule the next steps. This initial meeting can take place at our Carlsbad office in North San Diego County or through an online meeting.

Upcoming changes or challenges
1 Meeting (In-person or Virtual)

A cash flow statement comparing the current situation and proposed action items

We also build specific action plans for your goals and future financial decisions by looking at:
Major purchases or expenses
Business launch or exit
ACTION & UPDATES
Ongoing Financial Planning Services
The key to a good financial plan is flexibility, this is because we each are living a unique life and we know that life doesn't go as planned.
Once the plan is created, we work side by side to take action. We assist in making recommended changes and then we help you track short term benchmarks to work toward your goals.
As life changes, we make updates. As a team, we work together so that you feel confident on your path to success.
Our whole process is guided by an experienced CFP® professional.
It's time to center your money on what matters most to you. We are excited to help you get started!
