Wealth Advice Simplified

We work with Entrepreneurs, Business Owners, Investors, and High Level Executives to improve cash flow, pull Equity out of the business, and Grow  overall Net Worth.

You can Improve the Value of the Assets you have. There are Options for you to use Cash Flow from investments, or businesses for an Exit Strategy, or Retirement, or to Retain Top Talent without giving up Equity Positions.

You have to understand Risk, so as to adapt and manage it as best as possible. If you do not know how to Pull Equity out, then the help of a Good Advisor becomes more important. We are the Advisors who Understand your Situation, because we have been  all 3 – Entrepreneurs, Business Owners, and Executives.

Process for Tax Protetcion 

Control Your Capital by Using the Tax Code to Reduce or eliminate Taxes can be one of the biggest things you do to Increase your Financial Security.

The Objective is to move more of your money into a long term Tax Free position. 

It is Important to have your Funds Separated into 3 Types of Accounts:

  • Taxed – Normal W2 income (1099, salary, etc.), Investments (maybe Taxed at lower Cap Gains rates)
  • Tax Deferred – Typical Retirement Accounts like 401K, IRA
  • Tax Free – Insurance Accounts, or Roth IRA

Most professionals have all of their money in the Taxed, or Tax Deferred category, which Lacks Balance. This creates a Problem. All of Your Money is Exposed to either the Current Government Tax Code, or the Unpredictable Future Tax Code. Either way, you have Less Certainty of what you will pay.

EK 101 Concepts


Game Plan 

= Offense/Defense

It’s not all offense, or all defense, it’s the combo of both – balance.




= Acquire Assets

Assets that appreciate over time are the best way to keep and grow wealth.



= Exit Strategy

Business Professionals need a long term plan, to enhance their options.
