From Sheila: Introducing our LifeStyle Financial Second Opinion Service

Our new second-opinion service offers a deeper level of assistance to our clients and those they care about. We only add a handful of new relationships into this select group each year, enabling our team to have a major beneficial impact in their lives.

Why now? It seems there has never been so much money in motion or so many people wanting someone to “check under the hood” of their financial path. We’re here to take potential clients through the same discovery and analysis process you experienced, gaining clarity on their current situation and where they’d like to go, examining gaps along the way.

We may find out they are in good shape, or we may discover they could better their situation. Our team will work hard to find gaps in our clients’ current plans and provide a significant advantage as they work toward their goals. However, if we’re not a perfect fit for their situation, we’re happy to point them in the direction of another suitable financial advisor. There is no pressure, but plenty of opportunity.

To schedule a time to discuss your financial future and the possible role of insurance or investments in your financial strategy, contact us today at or 763-496-1232.

We are an independent financial services firm helping individuals create retirement strategies using a variety of investment and insurance products to custom suit their needs and objectives.
