Mission Statement: Mission Trails Financial provides awareness, education and implementation for individuals and businesses looking to navigate their financial pathways.
What is the personal comprehensive financial planning process? First, we listen. We want to know what makes you, you. What are your personal financial goals? What trail do you want to take? If your financial goals are unclear or undetermined, we’ll help you define and set them. Second, we will help decide what gear and training are necessary to reach those goals. We’ll work closely with you to map out your financial portfolio and determine what mix of products best suit you. Third, we will walk with you—every step of the way—as you journey on your trail toward your financial goals.
What is the comprehensive financial planning process for a business? Goal setting: Where do you want your business to be in 1, 5, or 10 years? We will help you determine what drives your business and which drivers are most profitable. Together, we will build the trail to connect your goals with those drivers. Once built, we will walk the trails on an ongoing basis to ensure that milestones are reached or necessary adjustments are made.
