Our Mission

Reduce — Reuse — Retire

Our mission is to comprehensively advise our clients on nearly all things financial. We put our clients’ needs first and strive to create a relationship that is based on trust, honesty, integrity, and hard work. IE will help the general public and its surrounding business’ with insurance, investments, mortgages, taxes, real estate issues and other money matters. We will strive to be “The Complete Advisor” in our quest to comprehensively advise our clients. We have a goal to create a one stop shop for nearly all things financial.

Why do we do what we do? What’s our purpose and belief?

We believe Mainers need to know more about their money and financial situation so that they can retire more comfortably than they ever thought – sooner than they think. We know people can decrease their stress by increasing their knowledge and ease of dealing with money… whether it’s debt, taxes, real estate, or a monthly bill. We reduce stress and increase peace! We do what we do to educate the client and eliminate the sale. We teach our clients what and how to buy, and not to be sold. We do what we do to eliminate the sale, guilt, and moving through fear and emotion. We do what we do to educate, enlighten, and elevate our clients to a better financial place for them and their family legacy.

How we do what we do?

We do it by connecting with people not on a business level, but on a personal level. We get to know the people and learn about them, not just their finances. We learn about their family, feelings, beliefs, personality, and their goals in life – then we learn about their financial concerns.

Our cycle is based on a minimum 2 appointment process:

1. The first appointment is just an information gathering session.

2. The Second Appointment is information dissemination – most times a third appointment is required. This will allow the client to make a decision on their own to “buy” and not be sold.
