About Michael Hock
As husband, father, brother, son, and someone with firsthand experience riding the rollercoaster of small business ownership, Michael is passionate about helping families and small business owners to gain financial clarity and establish a solid financial foundation through planning and advice.
When working with clients Michael uses a holistic approach which focuses on five areas of a clients financial situation:
1.) Income and Expenses
3.) Retirement Planning
4.) Risk Management
5.) Estate Planning
Each of these areas are interconnected and should be looked at holistically to uncover potential blind spots and make sure all five areas are working together.
