Your life, your plan.

For all of the stages in your life:
Invest in your future.

The Advice for Life approach recognizes that we’re all on a special journey – and that each of us requires a road map to help us get to where we want to be. This disciplined planning process helps clients manage debt, better understand the financial decisions that support their situation, and improve family communication regarding money issues.

We believe that adopting a holistic planning approach that focuses first on your life goals and aspirations has the potential to improve the chances of achieving the future that you envision.

Don’t let your dreams fade. Call today for a consultation.Together we’ll chart a path to your future.


Advice for Life is a client-centric, holistic approach to financial guidance that reflects your priorities and specific life circumstances.


Before we get down to crunching numbers, we’ll talk about the things that are most important to you - family, community, pastimes, church. We’ll ask a lot of questions about what you’re really thinking, feeling, worried about; your experiences with money; and what you’ve accomplished so far. Together, we’ll figure out where you are now.


Based on what we discuss in the Discovery phase, we will assess your personal situation, gauge where you are now relative to your life goals and priorities, and consider what gaps exist. We will weigh the financial implications of each goal we discuss and construct the framework for a plan that supports them.


A benefit of holistic planning is that it provides a comprehensive view of all areas of your financial life. During this phase, we will recommend specific solutions to address each of your goals. This is where we implement your customized plan.


Just when you make plans, life happens - and events large or small can change everything. The monitoring stage incorporates tracking systems to keep your plan on target. We’ll help you plan for the unexpected, anticipate change, and adjust your plans over time, as necessary.

What is your tolerance for risk? More importantly, what are your goals? A successful investment plan will account for those key elements and more. Turn to First State Investment Services to successfully invest in your future.
