Nancy’s Passion for Planning
Helping people is my passion. I love what I do. I want to get to know the person because all my clients become my friends.
“When I meet with a new person, the first thing I want to do is to get to know them. How many children and grandchildren do you have and where do they live? What makes you happy and what is the positive place that takes you out of your negative mood? What are your hobbies? Do you have any major health issues? Do you like to travel and visit new places? I want you to think about your future income. What is important about money to you?
Eventually, “I take a look at the portfolio they come in with and review their goals. What is the money for? Do you need income, or growth, or legacy or health care? At a later meeting, if we have some problems we work together, and if necessary, together we do some behavioral coaching, step-by-step. This helps people adjust to a different mindset about money and their future -similar to approaching a new recipe.”
One of Nancy’s favorite expressions is, K.I.S.S: “Keep it Simple, Sweetie.” Because cooking is a hobby she enjoys, she uses the analogy of breaking down the financial planning process step-by-step, as one does with a recipe, so that it is not overwhelming. “When I begin working with a new client, I take a look at the portfolio they come in with, review their goals, and then together we do some behavioral coaching, step-by-step. This helps them adjust to a different mindset about money and their future – similar to approaching a new recipe.”
“Together, we develop a new recipe for their financial future,” she says. We focus on future income and financial health. “Once we get the basic financial recipe in place with provisions for unexpected risks, we can always tweak it and spice it up or tone it down, depending on what works for that person.”
Nancy goes on to explain that most people in this demographic will need to plan for what she calls an “encore” career. “I coach them to develop a hobby they love that will keep them mentally and physically active and earn some additional spending money.”
“It is equally important for people to have a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (CFP®) as it is for them to have a medical professional,” adds Hite. “In this way, they will have a coach for their financial health and a coach for their medical health to help increase the likelihood of quality of life for the future years.
