Jim goes beyond providing a plan, taking a fee, and stopping with presentation of a plan. He takes pride in completion of the entire process. Recognizing that a plan, no matter how expensive, is worthless until implemented, Jim sees the process to completion, including implementation. This usually involves a minimum of two meetings, and sometimes several meetings. At Hough Financial Services, they understand that good planning is a “team sport.” Jim works with the client’s other team members — attorney, accountant, trust officer and family members — guiding each step in the process. Jim provides a regular review process, which is essential to good planning. Jim is committed to professional service, with attention to all steps in the process, and strongly encourages his clients to go through a regular, periodic review.
