I help people use money as a tool to enjoy life today, while still planning responsibly for tomorrow.

My name is Eric Roberge. I'm a CFP®, the founder of Beyond Your Hammock, and provide fee-only, fiduciary financial planning in Boston.

My goal is to help you achieve financial clarity, make mindful and informed decisions, and use your money as a tool to design a life that you love now and in the future.

Henry Ford once said, “Whether you think you can, or you think you can't--you're right.” I’m here to help those who think they can achieve financial freedom actually do it.

Over 10 years ago, I made a decision that surprised my friends and family and made a huge impact on my life. I left my comfortable job as an investment analyst to venture into the unknown. I started my career as an independent financial planner in 2007, right before the economy crashed.

The next few years were financially challenging to say the least. My situation forced me to pay close attention to my finances. I learned firsthand the difference smart money management can make, and how focusing on the fundamentals leads to financial success.

After spending the first few years of my new career working for several small financial planning firms, I knew it was time for me to launch my own company. I founded Beyond Your Hammock to guide motivated professionals in their 30s and 40s to build solid relationships with their money and create financial strategies that actually work.

I now spend my days helping clients organize their finances and create practical financial strategies that provide clarity and peace of mind. I also educate students about the value of money and speak to other financial planners at conferences across the country to transform the way financial advice is delivered in our society.
