    We believe in growing wealth on purpose, with intentionality, and for the long term;

    And growing wealth for a purpose, using money not as a measure of significance, but as a tool to create significance.

    Our Purposeful Money™ process will show you how.

Welcome to Purposeful Money

You have goals. Dreams. Ideas about what you want the future to look like.

You want to help your kids through college.

Live comfortably during your retirement. And, perhaps even start that business you’ve been dreaming about.

Life is more complicated and busy than ever. Between hectic schedules and the never-ending to-do list, it’s tough to keep our finances in tip top shape- and stay on top of changing tax laws and the financial landscape to boot. That’s where many of our clients are when they come in: with the nagging feeling that there just might be something they’re missing.

But by going through our Purposeful Money process together, working through each of the pieces of their finances, they soon find a sense of relief, many times right from the first meeting. You can have that peace of mind too.

If that sounds like you, you’ve come to the right place. While those questions can keep you up at night if you don’t address them, the good news is once you start, you’ll feel better before you know it.

At Purposeful Money, we help you make the choices that are best for you, so you can have the peace of mind that comes with knowing you’re making the most of your opportunities.

And because we’re a fee-only financial planning firm, we promise we won’t sell you anything along the way. You can rest easy knowing we have your best interest at heart.

-Erin Baehr, CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™

Purposeful Money™ Process

Smart financial planning considers all the pieces of your finances, not just one or two. While each part of your plan has its own purpose, none exist in a vacuum; they are dependent upon each other. Through our Purposeful Money Plan process, we look at your entire financial picture and make sure the pieces add up to be an effective, purposeful whole.
