Of course, you would choose the swing! The Financial Institutions have products, which we call the clubs. To play the game of Golf, you need both the swing and the club, but we take our clients first to the practice tee to improve their skill before going to the club rack to pick out a set of sticks. Simply put, we want to spend time teaching you the efficiencies of how money really works. Traditional planning tends to take you to the club rack first, in hopes of finding the perfect “club”, or product.
At Steele Financial, we dedicate time to discussing your life, desires and dreams. We want to guide you in developing winning strategies that are suitable for your unique financial situation. We believe that empowering our clients with knowledge and skills is the only way for them to succeed at the financial game. This is where our Money Coaching and Retirement Counseling sessions can make the important difference.

This is one of the most important areas of development in the financial services industry. So many people are contemplating retirement without the knowledge and awareness that is needed to giude their course. The issues are important and complex and emotional. The concerns involve health and family. Considerations of lifestyle become more paramount that ever.
