As a fee-only financial planner, my focus is to offer unbiased financial advice to help you achieve your life goals. - Wendolyn Forbes, CFP®

Fee-Only financial planner located in Waynesville, NC, serving clients locally and across the country

Wendolyn Forbes is a Waynesville, NC fee-only financial advisor serving clients locally and across the country. Wealth Transition Finance, A Member of Advisory Services Network, LLC provides comprehensive financial planning to help womenorganize, grow and protect their assets through life’s transitions. As a fee-only, fiduciary, and independent financial advisor, Wendolyn Forbes is never paid a commission of any kind, and has a legal obligation to provide unbiased and trustworthy financial advice.

My name is Wendolyn Thurston Forbes. I am a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER ™ practitioner. 

At the core of my work in financial planning is my desire to help people experience the joy of aligning their values with their finances, of breaking through their fears and concerns about money so they feel confident about the pursuit of their financial goals.

As the oldest of three children in a single-parent family, I grew up observing how money was hard earned and hard to keep. Independence, determination, and grit are the building blocks of my being. On my own since the age of 17, I have experienced the anxiety and fear associated with credit card and student loan debt, of working 2 to 3 jobs while attending (and paying for) college as full-time student. I have also experienced blissful breakthroughs as I learned how to eliminate debt and effectively manage my habits around money to achieve my financial goals.

The values of my financial services practice include personalized service, timely communication, and the delivery of practical advice with transparency and integrity.

Over the years, I have collaborated with a variety of people and, I believe, helped them to achieve confidence, knowledge, and understanding about finance. I tailor my approach using financial planning principles that align with individual situations and circumstances.

I founded my financial services practice to help women manage wealth, navigate life transitions, and gain confidence about finance because I wanted to be the kind of woman that I didn't know back in my younger days- someone with whom the values of personalized service, timely communication, practical advice, transparency and integrity about personal finance were shared.  

As a fee-only financial planner, my financial planning and investment management services are available for either a one-time or on-going cost. My practice provides clients with flexibility in their approach to financial planning.

Whether you are a do-it-yourself investor who wants to engage a professional for financial planning services or an investor who prefers to lean into the guidance of a professional for ongoing investment management, I invite you to connect with me so we may discover whether we collaborate and explore your financial situation together.
