Helping busy professionals and their families find greater peace of mind
Michael and Jennifer are a busy couple in their late 40s with two kids in middle school. Jennifer is a successful corporate executive and Michael is senior manager considering turning his current “side-hustle” into full-time consulting business.
As a dual-income, mid-career power couple, Michael and Jennifer are smart, hard-working and busy professionals. Jennifer is a sales executive at a Fortune 500 healthcare services firm. She has successfully managed the family’s balance sheet on her own for years. She has made several smart financial and career moves, and she feels they are relatively financially secure. However, the demands on her time from family obligations and increasing work responsibilities has made focusing on financial planning for the future feel overwhelming.
Michael is a talented senior manager in a privately owned engineering and construction firm. He has deep domain expertise and is frequently sought out for additional ad-hoc consulting opportunities.Jack wants to evaluate the financial implications of a transition to being a full-time self-employed consultant with a more flexible schedule, especially given the acceleration of Jennifer’s career opportunities. While this couple does not feel stressed about their expenses, they have no idea where their money is going each month. They're not sure they're saving in the right type types of accounts. They're not 100% confident their net worth is where it should be. The increasing complexity of the family’s income sources has created unexpected stress in their marriage about which strategies make the best sense and whether the time is right for Michael to leave his job. Additionally, they want to start planning to send their middle school age kids to college.
