dil•i•gent – characterized by steady, earnest, and energetic application and effort

(Webster’s New Collegiate Dictionary)


The purpose of Diligent Wealth Management is found in the name…using thorough and persistent effort to guide you in the stewardship of your financial resources.  This starts by listening to you, learning about your situation, your likes, your dislikes, your values, and your goals.  This forms the foundation of your financial plan.

By providing you with the knowledge, alternatives, and  recommendations developed specifically for you, you can choose the path toward your financial goals.

When we travel, we cannot control the weather or predict where each traffic jam will occur.  Yet we do not throw everything to chance.  We pack, prepare, and select the route that seems best suited to reach our destination while remaining flexible to adjust our course as needed.  In the same way, your financial journeys deserve and require attention and forethought.

The plans of the diligent lead surely to advantage, but everyone who is hasty comes surely to poverty. – Proverbs 21:5
