Getting Started

At Wealth By Design, we help you optimize financial possibilities as you unfold life’s potential as you enter your unique version of “retirement.” We want to get to know you!


Are you considering a transition in the next 5-10 years?  Our Journey of Financial Health™-Pre-Retirement (below) and our service levels for Investment Management is for you.

Have you already crossed over that line known as “retirement” and are curious how to optimize the financial resources you worked hard to build?  Our Second Mountain Journey is a great way to give you peace of mind in creating your unique version of wealth.

We know we can’t work with everyone, so the fit needs to be right for both of us. When you are ready to meet us and allow us to get to know you, e-mail or call Molly to set up a exploration meeting. Molly will gather some basic information and send you a bit of reflective “homework” to prepare for this meeting.

The exploration meeting is a time to get to know each other. Talking about finances can be a bit uncomfortable—it is our job to put you at ease in a safe, comfortable setting. This first meeting will guide us in determining how we can best assist you. You will feel confident that you have an advocate and educator to walk alongside you as you look forward to retirement or as you move into and through your fall season of life.

Learn more about how to start your Journey of Financial Health™-Pre Retirement or Second Mountain Journey below, or call us at (970) 927-3909 and we will assist you in unfolding and implementing your vision of the “rich life.”
