Dogs are called man's best friend because they are loyal - always right by your side through life's ups and downs. That's one thing I love about dogs. But what does this have to do with financial planning?
I’ve been involved in taxation and financial planning for the past three decades, and I’ve been around dogs even longer. What I’ve learned from both is that a financial planner should be right by your side, too, guiding you through life’s tough decisions.
That’s what I love doing for people just like you. In fact, I got my first taste of this as a 15-year-old when my grandfather asked me to help take care of my grandmother when he was gone. He taught and modeled for me a life of responsible money choices, avoiding debt and planning and saving for the future.
I applied these principles to my own life and helped my grandmother move along in hers as a widow. And when she passed, I had the honor and responsibility of being her executor.
Not only did I get the chance to fulfill my grandparents’ wishes, but I also became convinced that this was the path for my life … helping as many people as I could navigate life with solid guidance and a freedom from financial worry.
For many years, I’ve worked hard to make life less hard for my clients, and I’ve learned a lot from each one. But when I’m not working, I enjoy boating, horseback riding, traveling and hiking with my husband, and … of course … our dog, Rangeley.

Financial planning is a life-long process, not a single event. The process of financial planning is much more comprehensive and integrative than simply managing investments.
The earlier the process is started the more easily you may achieve your goals and dreams. As a client of Rand Financial Planning, LLC, your holistic, personal financial plan will include the following:
GOALS AND VALUES.
Your goals and values are the foundation on which your personal financial plan is built. Everything else is coordinated so you can achieve your goals while remaining true to your values.
Determining how much insurance coverage you need, what risks you can afford to self-insure, where you should buy your insurance, how much you should pay for it, and understanding and maximizing your employee benefit package are vitally important to your financial security.
Estate planning goes well beyond making a will. It may involve naming a guardian for minor children, making provisions for dependents with special needs, addressing medical directives and other end-of-life considerations, such as minimizing estate taxes, determining when a trust is appropriate, and deciding how to most effectively transfer ownership of a small business.
You don’t have a choice about paying taxes, but you can avoid making the mistake of overpaying them. Tax planning helps to lawfully structure your income and take advantage of the deductions and credits for which you qualify so you pay only what you owe when you owe it.
We compile a complete inventory of your investments and analyze each for costs, tax efficiency, performance, risk and diversification. We help you to understand what you have and whether what you have is appropriate for you.
We use Functional Asset Allocation to create an overall net worth growth or preservation plan that protects you during market downswings and helps you fully participate in times of prosperity.
Retirement planning is more than simply ensuring that you won’t outlive your money. It also involves the timing of benefits, including Social Security. And beyond the money aspects, it’s about how you will make your retirement years personally fulfilling and enjoyable.
CASH FLOW PLANNING.
Deciding in advance how you will spend your money ensures you are making regular progress toward financial independence and keeps your plan on track. If you are dealing with debt and spending issues, we will help you set priorities and gain control over your money.
If you have children or grandchildren, identifying the right mix of alternatives and maximizing their use is a complex and confusing process, but there are ways for families of any income level to effectively save for future college costs.
Owning a small business can have a big impact on your personal financial plan – in taxes, in risk management, in cash flow, and in estate planning. Integrating small business planning with your personal financial plan is another key to reaching your goals.
Our open planning agreement means that, in addition to the services listed here, we provide advice via email any time you request it on financial matters that concern you.
