Hourly Financial Planning
You may be surprised when you first learn what financial planning costs.
Where does it fit?
If you compare the cost of financial planning to going on vacation, you're probably going to opt for the vacation. That's understandable. But what if you compare the cost of financial planning to the amount of money that comes in and goes out over your lifetime? Investing in smart decisions over time can make a big difference in achieving your goals.

Your cost is determined by the complexity of your situation and your priorities. Abby charges $240 an hour for time spent in person and behind the scenes. She provides a fee quote before you commit, and your final cost will not exceed the quote.
How do our fees compare?
Financial planning fees are often listed in terms of percentages and automatically deducted from client accounts. Or, they might be paid for with sales commissions. This makes it hard to understand what financial planning is costing you.
Take this example: An adviser who manages money might charge 1% of your account value. This may not sound like a lot, but many advisers have a $500,000 minimum. That means you could pay $5000 or more each year, regardless of the complexity of your situation.
We believe that the cost of quality financial planning should be customized for the advice you seek.
