The Team

Guidingpoint Financial Group

We’ve been in business a long time, and over time, we have developed a process for working with our clients that puts them in the best position to succeed.

The first step of that process is asking the right questions to get a picture of your financial situation and where you are today.

The second is understanding what your goals are for the future.

The third step provides an honest assessment of how attainable those goals are. Which goals are most realistic? Which are your priorities?

The fourth step is to explore what actions we need to take to get there.

Then finally, we have a conversation about how comfortable you are with these actions. Are they things that you think you can do? How can we help you stay on track? We’ll build on this conversation and every check-in. Having a tried-and-true formula like this provides a firm foundation so you know what to expect and can feel confident that we are being thorough.
