The Comprehensive Planning Process

There is a lot of complexity when you're trying to fit all the pieces of your financial puzzle together.  Having Modern Cents walk you through that journey can help to set your mind at ease with respect to your most pressing concerns, educate you on all matters related to your financial picture, and give you the confidence to make decisions regarding your finances as you move forward.

Our Comprehensive Financial Planning engagement is a six-step process, throughout which we cover all aspects of your unique financial situation.  



































Our discovery process involves a web-based, in depth quantitative data dive, followed by a qualitative conversation to best understand your planning priorities and needs.

Business Discussion



After our analysis is complete, we will engage in thorough discussions of our findings. We will provide you with financial education where needed, and assist you in making decisions on key issues.

Inspecting a Ring



A thorough deep dive of your current financial picture will be undertaken, to ensure suitable options and recommendations are made in our following discussions.  We will interact when needed via Asana.




We will assist you in creating a timeline of 'to-do's, involving other professionals if and when needed. This is critical to ensure you are successful in following through with the recommended options.
