Our Team

It’s not about us. It’s about you!

You can find out all you want about us in our disclosure document (ADV Part 2).

In the meantime, here is what we want for you:

We believe that the fundamental purpose of personal life planning is to help you achieve your ideal selves. We want for you:

  • To experience passion and vision in your life.
  • To feel a sense of safety and peace of mind.
  • To recognize that it’s not about the money, it is about what you want to experience and your life goals. It’s about your family, friends, loved ones and your dreams that may or may not cost money.

Welcome to Intrinsic Wealth Counsel

Real Planning for Real Life

“We yearn for you to experience the impact and benefits life planning has to offer. We seek to provide real planning for real life. What we know is that the life planning experience benefits the individual beyond money. Clients who embrace and honor themselves by investing in themselves experience a greater sense of safety and security, peace of mind, better connections with friends and family, higher self-esteem and life satisfaction than those who do not. They possess a greater sense of control of their lives that encompasses every area of their life.

What you want is a safe place to help you sort out your money and your life. You want to know that you have a trusted friend and advisor who has your best interest in mind and heart. You want an advisor who is not concerned with how much time you need to make sure things get done. This is your life and it is worth your time and our time to help you succeed. We believe that success is an individual or couple’s ability to achieve their goals in life, whatever they may be.

We want to help you pursue true wealth and happiness. We know you know that happiness is not about how much money you have and wealth means far more than money. We also know you want real planning for your real life. To realize and enjoy both life’s journey and the destination of life goal achievements.”

The Story Behind Our Name

When it comes to planning, we believe that intrinsic motivations are far more powerful a force for life goal achievement than extrinsic motivations. For example, we think Steve Jobs was clearly an intrinsically motivated individual who aspired to make a dent in the universe. We specifically chose counsel over management as we believe that there are few, if any, that enjoy being “managed”. However, most of us recognize the need and benefits of seeking counsel from a trusted advisor or friend. We aspire to be both.

Friendship…The comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them out, just as they are – chaff and grain together – certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping and with the breath of kindness blow away the rest.”

— Dinah Mulock Craik (1826-1887)

Important to the success of the personal financial planning process is the monitoring and periodic review (focusing on the plan – goals) of the plan to assure that it continues to meet the individual needs (dreams in motion).”
