Prioritize your cash flow. Grow your net worth. Make work optional. - Jake Northrup, CFP®, CFA®, CSLP®

We help travel-loving young families who don't buy into the "9-5, work-until-you're-65" concept find the responsible balance between paying down debt, investing for the future, but also experiencing life now.

Hi there! 

We're the EYW team. Established in 2019, our home "offices" are based in Rhode Island (Jake), Tennessee (Marie) and Arizona (Mike) as we operate remotely and work with clients from all around the US.

We provide virtual, fee-only financial planning services to travel-loving young families who don't buy into the traditional "9-5, work-until-you're-65" concept. We help you find the responsible balance between paying down debt, investing for the future, but also experiencing life now.

Furthermore, we specialize in helping clients that have >$200,000 of household income and one (or more) of the following:

- Young kids

- Equity compensation (ISOs, NSOs, ESPP, RSUs,)

- Business or aspiring to own a business

- >$100k of federal student loans

Our team includes Certified Financial Planners (CFP®), Certified Student Loan Professionals (CSLP®), a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) and a former Certified Public Accountant (CPA) as we love to nerd-out on the technical side of financial planning, but our true passion lays with the "personal" side of personal finance - helping our clients articulate & visualize their dream life and then best align their financial decisions with their life.

We're shaking up the financial planning industry by bringing modern, life-centered financial planning advice and personal CFO-level service to our clients. We are completely remote, paperless and meet clients over Zoom with frequent guest appearances from kids, dogs, cats and whatever fun animals that may be around your home.

Disclaimer: We can't work with clients who don't like dogs. 

Hi there! 

I’m a travel enthusiast, local cuisine explorer, dog lover (especially pugs!), Tom Brady fan boy and ex-baseball player back in the days. However, my true passion lies in financial planning to help clients make the best possible life-centered financial planning decisions and run a modern, high tech and cutting-edge financial planning firm that is redefining how financial planning is really done. 

I love what I do – seriously, I nerd-out for it. I’ve spent countless hours learning as much as I can about financial planning and being involved in the community. Here are a few ways how:

  • Named to the 2020 Investment News 40 Under 40 Class
  • Named as a Top 23 Financial Planner for Millennials by Business Insider in 2020
  • Named a Young Advisor To Watch by Financial Advisor Magazine in 2021
  • Named a Top 100 Advisor by Investopedia in 2022
  • Earned the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (CFP®) designation
  • Earned the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) designation
  • Earned the Certified Student Loan Professional (CSLP®) designation
  • Taught Retirement Planning and Employee Benefits at Boston University’s CFP® program

When I’m not wearing my financial planner hat, you can find me traveling around the world with my wife. Some of our favorite trips include Antarctica, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Egypt, Iceland, Croatia and Greece (where we got married!).
