Essential Financial Tips for Canadians
Retirement Planning: Pitfalls and Myths
“We were approaching retirement and not completely sure where we stood or if we could we afford to retire next year, as we originally planned.
When Steve broke down everything in terms of income, expenses, timing of CPP/OAS and retirement goals, we felt much more in control. The plan he laid out for us will also save us a significant amount of tax as we move forward with this next stage of our lives.
Working with Steve was a solid investment.”
– Dan and Diane T.
Financial Planning: Don’t Overlook These Details
“Before working with Steve, I was very confused with the conflicting advice I received from financial institutions, family, and friends. I was a saver but didn’t have any knowledge on how to invest my money or organize my budget.
Steve gave me a big picture of my current financial state and helped me draw realistic financial goals and provided me with practical strategies to achieve these goals. I now feel confident with what to do and also how to respond to unexpected emergencies. I think the most important aspect was that the coaching was tailored to my unique circumstances.
The Money Coaching fee was reasonable and money well spent. The hidden management fees in mutual funds would have cost far more than what I paid for a Money Coach, and I wouldn’t have benefitted from Steve’s exceptional knowledge.”
– Katherine C., M.D.
Cash Flow: Smart Budgeting to Reach Your Goals
“We were at a place in our lives where we really wanted to take charge of our finances; our savings were non-existent, credit cards were maxed out and we were stressed.
In five months of working with Steve we were able to pay off over $12,000 in debt!
My wife and I both agree that working with Steve was the best decision we could have made, and we are looking forward to walking the path that Steve has help to create.”
– J & D Peterson

Before becoming a personal finance professional, Steve relied on a traditional commission-based advisor. After poor results and receiving no personalized guidance, he was inspired to study formally, and he now holds the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER®, a designation held by only 17% of all advisors in Canada. Steve’s mission is to ensure that his clients get advice that is in their best interests.
Steve’s passion for financial education led him to become a public speaker, and he has presented at businesses and associations in Greater Vancouver on a broad range of financial topics.
