Does this replace the need for a Financial Planner or Financial Adviser?
A financial adviser deals primarily with the assets you have to invest and they manage them for a fee. They can cost between $2000 and $7500 per year and often require a minimum investment. We do not invest or hold your money. We are an independent resource.
A financial planner helps you organize your information and make decisions about your money. They charge generally $1000 - $2000 to put your information together and then a monthly retainer of a few hundred dollars.
AFIREfi guides you through a fun process of organizing your information with habit changing knowledge. Questions are presented to set you up for long term success.
If you believe you will need a financial planner or wealth manager, it would be a good idea to set up your information first in AFIREfi.
