At Willis Johnson & Associates, we use a customized planning methodology, based on the various stages in the ARC of life, which enables us to carefully identify your passion and create a personalized roadmap that allows us to accompany you on your journey.


Regardless of your age, we guide you through a process that allows us to Understand You, conduct a thorough Financial Analysis of your current situation, tailor a Financial Plan based on where you are headed, and Implement that Financial Plan in such a way that allows us to accompany you on your journey.


In order to really understand you, we’ll talk at length about what’s important to you. What are your goals? What motivates you? What does success look like? We’ll also gather personal, financial, and legal data, including taxes, wills, and any other relevant information about you, your family, and your current situation.


Once we conduct a thorough financial analysis, we’ll educate you on your options so that you can make informed decisions about maximizing all of your resources (including your company benefits) to meet your financial goals.


During this phase, we’ll show you several ideas and plans that are tailored to meet your financial goals.  We’ll then discuss and ultimately facilitate the implementation of the option that makes the most sense to you.


What do we mean by continuously planning? Well, once a plan of action is put in place, it needs to be monitored and adjusted as things change. In order for us to effectively accompany you on your journey, we’ll set up a personalized meeting schedule that allows us to have an ongoing conversation.
