The entrepreneurial mind is always moving. If it’s not creating, building or managing, it’s consumed by all the details required to keep a company on its feet. Business owners face complex issues when it comes to retirement plans, portfolio management, estate planning, insurance planning, risk management, and business transfer planning. Add in the inevitable uncertainty, lack of clarity and an assortment of advisors who don’t know how to work together, and it’s not surprising that a majority of business owners haven’t found the time to finish and, in some cases, start their financial plan. Hightower Bellevue’s Entrepreneurial Services process helps create peace of mind surrounding your financial plan.
