Beyond Your Hammock is a business that acts as your financial guide, helping you to organize your financial life and use your money as a tool to enjoy the present moment — while also planning responsibly for tomorrow. When I was coming up with the name for my business, I wouldn’t settle for the same old “XYZ Financial” that other advisors use because that doesn’t fit who I am or what I represent. I’m not looking to be your typical financial planning firm, and I’m definitely not your typical financial planner. I threw the cookie cutter name out the window, and with it, the boring, stuffy, awkward process most people think of when they hear “financial planning.” I wanted to create something that signified freedom from societal norms; a business that acknowledged that life has changed and is no longer linear. These days, people want more for themselves. And they want it now. Hanging out in a hammock during “retirement” no longer symbolizes success… it is what’s Beyond Your Hammock that intrigues us.
