Thoughtful Journeys

Life is an ongoing process and so is effective financial planning. While many of us have great intentions about managing our financial lives, rebalancing our investments, etc., but with everything else on our plates, we tend to fall short when it comes to actually doing it on a regular basis, with a consistent strategy.

Thoughtful Journeys is holistic, broad-ranging, ongoing financial planning, coaching, and investment management for a monthly fee.

Thoughtful Journeys includes, at a minimum, the following:

  • Initial meeting (meetings may be in person or virtual) – up to two hours

  • Follow up meeting to deliver and discuss initial recommendations – up to 120 minutes

  • Written financial planning recommendations (paper and/or electronic) – updated annually

  • Follow up meetings are scheduled online by the client as needed or preferred, but at least 1 time per year. Although we may meet more frequently in the first few months, meeting 4 times per year is typical to check on progress and adjust recommendations as life, financial or otherwise, continues to evolve – meetings are generally 60-120 minutes long

  • Regular accountability check-in emails to help client stay on track are available upon request

  • Phone or email access to answer questions

  • Ongoing non-discretionary investment management

  • Ongoing access to me to help address questions affecting your financial life as they emerge


Generally the monthly fee for Thoughtful Journeys will be the larger of: 

  • 1% of the balance of your total savings and investment assets divided by 12 (discounted rates apply on asset levels over $500,000 click here for details, refer to page 8), recalculated annually.


  • $200/month for a single person, $300/month for a couple (or for a married person planning individually).

Fees will be agreed upon in advance. The fees for Thoughtful Journeys are separate from, and in addition to, any trading or transaction costs. These costs may vary and are generally paid by you directly to the institution where the assets are held.
