Client Centered

At GBB, we see you not just as a receiver of financial advice
but as an active collaborator and
builder of your family's financial future.

Our Vision

Imagine you're starting a home project. Instead of hiring a full-time contractor, you're looking for guidance and tools to do it yourself. That's what our relationship with you is like. We provide you with the tools, guidance, assurance, and materials to construct your own financial blueprint. Through our collaborative approach, we ensure that your financial plan is uniquely tailored, aligning with your individual goals, values, and vision for your family's future.

Indicators You'll Excel with GBB

  • Catching Your Own Fish: If you're comfortable shaping your financial future, guided but not handheld, you'll align with our approach.

  • Investment of Time and Energy: Being a good fit with GBB means more than just investing money. It requires a commitment to your family's financial well-being, including about one evening a month to nurture and discuss your financial plan.

  • Tech Savviness: Comfort with technology, akin to a college student, is key for excelling with GBB. While we offer support, navigating our tools and software is essential.

  • Living Your Core Values: Believing that prosperity is more than wealth, and understanding that true success is grounded in meaningful values, indicates you'll thrive with GBB.

Who We Serve Best 
   

  • Newlyweds: Planning the future together, from home buying to family planning.
  • Parents with School-Age Kids: Alongside balancing current needs and planning for future education, we aid parents in cultivating early financial literacy for their children.
  • Parents with Teenagers: Parenting teenagers introduces a new spectrum of financial decisions that influence both the family's current well-being and long-term goals. This critical phase is a balancing act, requiring attention to immediate needs while laying foundational stones for future milestones.

When GBB Might Not Be The Best Fit

  • Complex Financial Management Concerns: If managing your finances feels intricate and you can't envision handling them on your own, even with guidance, our approach might not align.
  • Income and Investable Assets: If your annual income exceeds $250,000 or you have investable assets over $3 million, there may be services better tailored to those specifics.
  • Outsourcing Preferences: If you're searching for a hands-off approach and prefer not to be actively involved in financial planning.
  • Reliance on Direct Financial Commands: If you're looking to simply follow instructions without understanding or participating in the financial planning process, our collaborative and empowering style may not be the best match.
