Michelle Gass is a Fayetteville, AR and Dallas, TX Fee-Only Financial Planner serving clients across the country and around the world.. Paradigm Advisors specializes in providing objective financial planning to help clients build, manage, grow, and protect their assets through life's transitions. Michelle Gass is a NAPFA-Registered Financial Advisor and a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ Professional.
I have always had a passion for helping people and resolving complex issues. My diverse experiences working in different areas of finance – accounting, tax, family office environment, hedge funds and ultimately becoming an entrepreneur – make me uniquely qualified to serve your needs.
My professional career started with three years in public accounting at Arthur Andersen, where I learned firsthand the positive impact of strategic tax planning on wealth accumulation. I transitioned into investment management at a Dallas-based family office before venturing into non-traditional investment strategies and founding Paradigm, where we successfully managed hedge funds for over two decades. I received a Masters of Accountancy with a concentration in Taxation and a Bachelor of Science in Business with a concentration in Accounting from the University of Tennessee. I am a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and Certified Financial Planner (CFP®).
When I'm not helping others plan for their future, I'm enjoying time with family and friends. My favorite activities include walking, bridge, savoring good food and wine and traveling anywhere and everywhere...connecting with others along the way while I explore local cultures.
At Paradigm, we value objectivity, integrity and transparency. We provide fee-only financial planning focused on guidance and support. Our advisors don’t collect commissions on any investments we recommend, allowing us to offer truly objective advice.
We’ve created a three step process that makes it easy to collaborate and customize a plan tailored to your goals.
Step 1: Design
We want to understand who you are and where you want to be, both now and in the future. We’ll work together to aggregate your information, then we’ll design a plan that works for you. Paradigm Advisors uses Riskalyze to help discover your patented Risk Number®.
Step 2: Implement
We’ll help you take the second (and sometimes scariest) step: putting your plan into action. Whether we’re diving into the details around purchasing a new home or revising your estate plan, we’ll come up with solutions together. We provide strategic direction, asset allocation and investment advice.
Step 3: Live
Living your life with peace of mind should be a priority, but we’re all human. We know that life is unpredictable and its only constant is change. As questions start to arise, feel confident that a team of advisors at Paradigm will support you each step of the way.
