Our Client Stories
Holly had climbed the corporate ladder and was well rewarded for it. She loved her career, she loved what she had accomplished, but now she was encountering the “why” in the road. Why keep going? Should she stop?
When Holly came to us, she knew what she wanted to do; she wanted to get out of the corporate world and spend more time with those she loved, and pursuing those bucket list items she never had time for in a world full of deadlines.
Holly wanted to know when she could get out, and what life would look like if she did. Could she really afford someone to come by and clean the house and do the yard work if she didn’t have a paycheck coming in anymore?
We sat down with her and came up with a plan. Not only to make it to the places in the world she had always wanted to go, but to do it with those she loved most. Not only to keep her dream house, but to care for it the way she wanted to (yes, with the cleaner and the lawncare).
Now, Holly gets to reflect on her amazing career and accomplishments while living the life her hard work earned for her.

Some specific planning opportunities for Holly
We worked with Holly to determine what her monthly spending was, and what she would WANT it to be if she were pursuing her dreams the way she wanted to. Once we determined what that should look like, we helped her put together a long-term plan so she could live that life, but still be able to provide after her passing for the causes she cared about.
Holly came to us with Restricted Stock Units (RSUs), company benefits, and the funds she had accumulated herself. We helped her make sense of it all and reduce the risk in her portfolio so that her plan was solid.
With all that compensation and all those stock grants, Holly had a complicated tax picture that resulted in a lot of her earnings going to tax payments. We came up with a plan to diversify her net worth, while also doing it so that she didn’t have to pay huge tax bills.
Holly had worked hard, and she had saved well. We reviewed her insurance coverages to make sure that all of her hard work and her assets were covered. A few million dollars in an umbrella liability policy wouldn’t cut it, so we helped her shop for one that would be sufficient for her needs.
Holly cared deeply about making the world around her a better place. We came up with a plan that allowed the causes she cared most about to be furthered, whether she lived only one more year and 50 more.
