Matt’s Story
After college, I stumbled into my career and out of Nebraska - never really had much of a desire to leave. Luck led to very exciting work with great people and lots of opportunity. I met Michele in Arizona and we started our family in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Even with all that was going right, there was a nagging feeling there ought to be more. That nagging feeling evolved into MJB Financial Planning, LLC.

Although I began my career as an engineer and spent more than a decade working for Intel Corporation in Arizona and Oregon, I’ve discovered that my analytical but compassionate personality is well suited to owning a business that helps people with their finances. The company tagline “Simply More Life!” is personally meaningful to me and was consciously chosen to reflect what I want to accomplish for myself and others. “Simply More Life!” means more focus on what’s personally important to you. This might mean less of your energy is directed towards your personal finances.

I have been told that I’m well organized and focused on goals. It’s probably less that I am organized and more that I see the value in how structure and process make achieving long-term goals possible. I credit my Nebraska roots for giving me a combination of patience, quiet stubbornness, and the ability to think for myself. So, this is what I do and do well. It is one of the benefits my clients receive when working with me.
