Financial Planning

"Set your course by the stars, not by the lights of every passing ship."

Omar Bradley

We believe that utilizing our Proactive Wealth Process will  help create a disciplined approach to wealth management. Our standard of care is designed to allow the client to rest easy knowing that it covers and addresses most aspects of one’s financial life.

Proactive Means Considering The ‘What Ifs’ In Life.  We’ve all heard the phrase, “What you don’t know won’t hurt you.” At Sherrill Wealth Management, we know that nothing can be further from the truth when it comes to your financial security. That’s why identifying risks, such as loss of life, incapacity, liability, and legacy are paramount to protecting your wealth. We evaluate your potential risks and can design fire drills and strategies to address small issues before they become bigger problems. Because we are not tied to any particular product, provider or solution, you can count on a clear, objective assessment of your overall exposure to risk and recommendations that help minimize or eliminate it.

About the Author

Welcome! I have spent my entire 25 year career helping affluent families live off and enhance their nest-eggs throughout their retirement. Much of my experience was spent as a Wealth Manager and Team Leader at a couple of the largest and most reputable firms in the nation. I greatly appreciate all I learned in those formative years but ultimately I decided I wanted to have less clients, deeper relationships, and better work-life balance than a pure profit motivated institution is able to handle.
