Ben Wacek is a Member of the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors

The National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA) is a leading professional association of Fee-Only financial advisors - highly trained professionals who are committed to working in the best interests of those they serve.

NAPFA members live by three important values:

  • To be the beacon for independent, objective financial advice for individuals and families.
  • To be the champion of financial services delivered in the public interest.
  • To be the standard bearer for the emerging profession of financial planning.

Do you ever worry that your financial decisions won’t get you where you want to go in life? Here at Guide Financial Planning, we give people the confidence to know that they’re on the right path.

We start by getting to know you, your values, and where you want to go in life. What do you dream of? Retiring early to spend time with the grandkids? Quitting your job to start a business, raise your children, or go on the mission field? Just being extravagantly generous? Money is simply a tool that we use to make these dreams come true.

You face a lot of important decisions when it comes to your finances. There’s so much information out there that it’s hard to sort through it all or even know what to believe. We’ll help you narrow down your options, consider the pros and cons of each, and even look at how the Bible applies to the situation. Our goal is to give you all of the tools and resources you need to be confident that you are making the right decision for you and your family.

We will create a financial plan for you, a written document that will work as a map, guiding the way as you navigate this journey called life. And if you want, we can also partner together long-term, being there with you every step of the way, guiding you through new situations as they arise and helping you to stay on track.

We are fee-only, meaning we don’t earn commissions, have no asset minimums so that we can work with people in all seasons of life, and utilize technology to serve people all over the world.
