My Services

Financial Advice & Consulting

Analyze your present retirement plans, including company sponsored profit sharing, 401(k) and pension plans or self- employed arrangements and how they meet your projected retirement needs.


Financial Planning for Individuals

To make this process work the planner must be an excellent listener and be able to help you articulate your financial and personal goals. Then all the relevant data must be collected and analyzed. The planner then develops a plan for achieving your goals. Where I further differentiate my approach is that, I let you decide what involvement I will have in implementing your plan. It can vary from being available to answer questions, to showing you how to manage your own investments, or to implementing part or the entire plan for you. For more complex plans, I will make use of other professionals or work with your CPA, attorney or other financial professional.


Financial Planning for Businesses

If you're a business owner, a retirement plan can be one of the most valuable employee benefits you offer. A retirement plan is not only a tax-efficient way to save for the future but also a powerful tool to attract and retain quality employees. Whatever the size of your company, a Blossom financial advisor can put you in touch with retirement plan specialists who can help you meet your needs.
