Who We Are
 
Too many financial advisors seem to offer
the same solutions for every client.

Who We Are

Our work is client-centered. We listen, to learn about your life, what is important to you, and how you see money. With this understanding, we can create a personalized financial strategy for your tomorrows.

The process of making money (and making it grow) has always fascinated us, and that’s why we’ve spent our combined 20 years of experience helping clients plan for their financial futures. For us, it’s very fulfilling when our knowledge and experience can help someone else reach and exceed their goals.

We take a comprehensive view of each client’s financial situation, and we’re passionate about guiding our clients toward success. We also have the distinction of being connected to the Bank On Yourself® program. (Both of us are Bank On Yourself® Professional.) We use this process to enable our clients to have a rock-solid financial plan and a predictable retirement income – with no luck, skill or guesswork required. We help our clients become their own source of financing and get back what they pay for major purchases, so they can have a richer lifestyle in retirement that isn’t directly dependent on the ups and downs of the stock and real estate markets.

We want to use our knowledge and experience to help you get a strong financial foothold so that you feel truly confident and peaceful about your financial future. With reliable advice and a stable plan, you can begin working on your ideal future and your lasting legacy.

You website can be a powerful tool for your business. However, if your potential customers cannot find it or cannot find the information they are looking for on it, they will likely return to Google and find another site that provides what they are looking for. We offer you the tools to take control of your website's content. Ensure your placement in Google's ranking and increase your leads and conversions by keeping your content up to date and relevant with runCMS. runCMS does not rely on third party plugins that are prone to breakage. Instead, it is actively developed, hosted, and supported by the friendly and experienced staff at Run Business Solutions. That means that you don't need to worry about dealing with hard-to-reach, unreliable web hosting companies. runCMS is powerful and easy to use. We would love to show you how it works. Powerful Tools RunIT CMS gives users powerful and easy to use tools to make managing website content easy. These tools are managed independently and the pages update automatically. This reduces (if not eliminates) the need to use third-party tools to accomplish goals. However, RunIT CMS allows for complete integration with custom CSS and JavaScript. Galleries A Gallery is a collection of images. RunIT CMS gives users the ability to create multiple Galleries. Users can upload and re-size image and add them to a Gallery. Images can be re-ordered, deactivated and given a hyperlink. ALT tags are fully accessible. Galleries can be added to pages as thumbnails, slideshows, or thumbnail slideshows. The slideshow is powered by the Nivo Slider by Dev7studios. Libraries A Library is a collection of Resources. A Resource is a file with a Title and Description. A Library could be seen as a collection of files made available on a website with a title and description. Library Resources can have an expiration date added which will cause them to no longer appear on the website when the expiration date passes. Libraries can be added to pages as simple lists of Titles that are download links or as tables with the Title, Description, File Name, and a Download button. Library downloads are tracked and are reported in the Analytics Dashboard. Blogs Blogs are a great way for users to publish fresh content to the world. RunIT CMS includes a Blog tool with Categories. Blog Posts can have a cover photo, can be deactivated, and are edited with the Custom Content Editor. Blog Posts have an optional expiration date. All non-expired, active Blog Posts are added to the site's automatically generated sitemap.xml file and the site's RSS feed. Blog Posts can integrate with Calendar events, allowing users to create a blog post and a Calendar Event at the same time. Calendars No full-featured CMS is complete without a calendar. The RunIT CMS Calendar tool allows users to create multiple calendars, each having a name and a custom color. Events can easily be added to a Calendar. Events have a Title, Description, Start Date/Time, End Date/Time, option for All Day Event, Reminder Date/Time, and RSVP Required. The Calendar displays on the page as either a calendar or a list of events, each being hyperlinks that open details about the event. If RSVP Required is selected, the event details will allow users to RSVP. RunIT CMS Custom Content Editors are present throughout the system. They are WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editors that allow for content to be added and formatted in a Microsoft Word like manner. Our editor is one of the best on the market. RunIT CMS Custom Content Editor Toolbox The Custom Content Editors include a wide array of features for formatting text, pasting from Word, and pasting as HTML. Users can apply a CSS class from the site.css file to images and text. There is a full multi-level undo/redo mechanism with action trails like Microsoft Word. The editor includes a spell checker, find and replace tool, and a table builder. The editor also includes a powerful hyperlink manager, image manager, and document manager. The image manager allows users to edit images. The RunIT CMS Custom Content Editor produces clean, semantic HTML markup that users can view or edit with the click of a button. This allows for advanced users to embed videos, add custom scripts or styles, and generally take total control of how the HTML is going to look. Content Blocks There is no reason to repeat the same action (such as copying and pasting) to update multiple pages. No one enjoys manually updating each page of a website in order to update a hyperlink or an image. It is our goal to eliminate duplicate work when it comes to editing web content. That's what Content Blocks are all about. A content block is a piece of formatted content that can be added to pages and updated in one place. Content Blocks are edited with the Custom Content Editors, giving users complete control over the formatting (and advanced users control over the actual HTML). An example of a use case for a Content Block is a navigation sub-menu that exists in a subset of pages. Another example is a YouTube video that needs to be displayed on many pages and is subject to change. Site Layout Users have complete control over the way their websites look. Everything contained in the tag is editable using a Custom Content Editor. The system includes several macros for the purpose of adding the site navigation and page content in any place desired. There are also macros to get the site root, the current date/time, and to add CMS tools to the layout.know your purpose.
