It is about how you get from where you are right now to where you want to be.
It is about achieving your personal financial goals and enabling you to enjoy the fruits of your labors without having to worry if tomorrow will be a good or bad day in the markets. It is important to plot your path, have a plan how to get there, and get the right advice along the way.
Unfortunately, too many people do not get the "right" advice, and they are at risk of not accomplishing their financial goals. Of those who do make it securely through retirement, some will get there simply because they were lucky, but most will have created their financial security because they had a strategy. They will have saved and invested and grown their money in the right way, protecting it from unnecessary risks and fees. They will work with advisors that will take the time to get to know them, communicate clearly and help guide their way. Advisors that work for them, that have a fiduciary responsibility to watch or for their best interests, and not the interests of some big brokerage firm that may be telling what they can and cannot do based on their own needs and not yours. If you are looking to get somewhere -- to get "There" – we, the team at Harwood Financial, know how to set a course, it is what we do and we do it well.

Our holistic approach is about you and helping you achieve your personal goals, and it is integral to coordinate your finances, taxes and estate planning. Remember, it is not what you make, but what you keep that matters.
I learned as a pilot and officer in the Air Force to always have a plan, to remain flexible and make adjustments as necessary, and that even small improvements can make a significant difference over time. We, myself and my team at Harwood Financial Group, are about always seeking those improvements and constantly trying to improve on what we believe to be the right approach to investing and financial management. The decisions we make financially will affect more than ourselves and it is important to not accept anything less than always trying to do as best you can.
Wherever you are now we can help you get to where you want to be. The road between here to there can be better for those who know the way. We call the financial road map we provide our clients their personal "Retirement Navigator." It helps you "navigate" the often-choppy waters of investing and growing your money. Your personalized Retirement Navigator is a written financial plan that is specifically design for you: based on your goals, your objectives, and your needs. It is your personal financial roadmap, and it covers important items that may affect your financial security such as: outlining your goals and expectations, what investments make sense, and where we will take the needed income. Your Navigator will provide you with tax reduction strategies, it will stress test your current investments looking for unnecessary risks that you may not be aware of, provide simple to implement asset protection and tax reduction strategies, and most importantly provide you with our investment recommendations to help you get and keep your finances on track. It is the Harwood Way: we provide you clearly communicated, written guidance, and investment advice that is always in your best interest. We are Fiduciaries and we take the responsibility seriously.
