Mike Babcock, CFP®, RLP® is a Financial Life Planner at Azure Sky Financial Life Planning located in Austin, TX.


I grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah. I first became interested in personal finance when I had my own paper route and completed the Personal Management merit badge, which taught me how to create a budget.

Way of Life:

Faith, family, and community are very important to me. I enjoy working with people who value decency and goodness and who appreciate others’ unique beliefs and backgrounds. I try to live by wise words and ideas wherever I can find them; for me, these include The Four-Way Test, and the teachings of Jesus Christ. I love being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.


I live in Burleson, TX near Fort Worth with my wonderful wife, Sarah, our three kids, Duke, our English cream puppy. We plan to move to Austin soon because enjoying more of the natural beauty of the area is part of our life plan.

Experience and Training:

I’ve been helping families with their finances since 2006. I’m a Certified Financial Planner™ professional (since 2013), a Registered Life Planner® since 2021), have a Master of Science degree in Personal Financial Planning from The College for Financial Planning (2010), and specialized training in financial life planning and the First Step Cash Management System™ from Money Quotient.


I’ve helped several physicians, nurses, executives, and managers over the years. Early in my career I worked as a paraplanner for a wealth management firm that worked exclusively with doctors. I have also worked with executives and managers at AT&T, Texas Instruments, Palo Alto Networks, Raytheon, and Microsoft.
