Core Services

Financial Planning

Let us show you how a Wealth Vision Financial Plan can help you pursue your ideal financial future.

Intentional Guided Planning

We provide comprehensive services and personalized advice for every stage in your adult life.

Guided Wealth Portfolios

This platform combines the benefits of a personal financial advisor with sophisticated technology.

Whichever step you’re on, we would be more than pleased to coach fellow spenders, savers, and investors through the Dave Ramsey “Baby Steps”. Concepts such as budgeting, “The Debt Snowball,” how people differ in their relationships with money, and building a legacy have become part of our overarching strategy at Intentional Wealth Advisors.

Brian will continue to do what he’s always done – seek to educate people, no matter their age or previous experiences, and help them to proactively make smart financial decisions in an effort to build and preserve their assets.

Personalized and intentional financial planning to suit the different stages of your life.

Intentional Guided Planning is a service that provides information and direction, helping our clients make better decisions with their resources. Our advisors are really good at meeting you where you are while providing clarity and guidance. We have classified three stages of adult life that focus on a corresponding set of financial priorities and strategies.

Getting Started

You don’t have to be an expert, but having a basic, working knowledge of things like insurance, budgets, taxes, and investment options is always a good idea.

Mid-Career Adults

At this stage in life, you have a lot of things to keep in mind such as your health, career, children, college savings, insurance, aging parents, taxes, charity work, retirement, and more. We know it’s tough, so we’re here to support you, develop a solid attack plan, and keep you focused on what’s important.

Retired or Nearly Retired

You’ve worked hard, saved, and invested as best you could. If you raised a family, the kids are now independent adults with their own financial goals. Your focus now is that sweet spot in life when work is optional.
