What is the 3rd Decade?

Financial security is more about good money habits and decisions rather than how much you make. Poor financial decisions early in life can compromise your financial security (health) for years. At a minimum, we want you to have the knowledge, skills and confidence to make good financial decisions.


Here’s What You Get:

  • specific strategy that’s built around your goals, needs, wants, and wishes.
  • An easy to understand plan that prioritizes what needs to be done in the exact order of when it needs to be done.
  • An easy to comprehend implementation strategy that you’ll actually be able to do yourself. 


The 3rd Decade® Is For You If…

  • You’re ready to take full control of your financial life.
  • You want to speak with a financial mentor who isn’t  going to try and sell you something.
  • You’re tired of feeling overwhelmed about not having a plan in place.
  • You’ve done a good job saving over the years but feel it’s time to start working with a professional.


This isn’t for you if…

  • You want some get-rich-quick scheme that will allow you to retire tomorrow.
  • You think the government is going to collapse and should start stocking up on gold.
  • You don’t take your finances and financial future seriously.


Empowerment is the foundation for all of our work.

Classes are held twice a year, in the spring and fall. We highly recommend early enrollment as space is limited and classes fill quickly.
