You are more experienced now, your bank account is larger, and it is easier to think further...
My name is Melissa Different, and I have been passionate about helping my clients achieve their financial dreams for over 16 years. In 2002, I started my career working in Credit Unions, where I learned about day-to-day banking, lending, insurance, investments and financial planning which eventually became my passion. I felt I could utilize my knowledge to help my clients make the most out of every opportunity to save their hard-earned dollars and achieve their financial goals sooner.
I am grateful for the 10+ years that I spent at Credit Unions, I had learned a lot, but I realized that I needed to make a change BUT to where and what? One day I was inspired to act, I was going to start my own Financial Planning practice! So, in January 2016 I handed in my notice and the rest is history. I feel truly blessed to be of service to my clients and my community. I take my role as Fiduciary and a Financial Coach very seriously, and above all else I value the human connection with my clients. In my practice I try to foster, empowerment, discernment, and hope with my clients. The most important aspect isn't simply the planning process, although that matters, but the real magic is your own engagement in the process.
To my clients thank you for your loyalty and friendships over the years – You are why I do what I do! To new visitors here I hope that you have found something that resonates and if you did, I hope to connect with you sometime soon to see how I may be able to help you navigate today's complicated financial world, with grace and confidence. Thank you for stopping by my website to get to know me and why I do what makes me Different!
