Do the right things now to help achieve your goals in the future. Financial planning is that simple.

Hi, I’m Will Butler, PT -- Northwestern Mutual Financial Advisor. My role is to be your advocate, to keep you grounded so that every financial decision you make is consistent with your long-term goals.

Together, we will review what you are currently doing to lay a secure financial foundation for your family. Are college savings in your future? When do you want to retire? How much income do you want to receive each month during retirement, and from which sources?

Most importantly, what do you need to do now to help you get there?

Only once we have reviewed where you are financially now, and where you want to be someday, will we review specific solutions designed to fit your needs.

This way, you can leverage existing opportunities (such as employer benefits) while protecting yourself from supposedly “common sense” decisions that might have you doing the wrong things with your money, at the wrong time.

Through this process, you will feel empowered – simply because you understand what decisions make sense for you.  You can live life more intentionally.

When you accurately understand your financial situation, you know exactly what to do next.

Yes, you want a trusted advisor for your financial future. Why Northwestern Mutual?

My family became a Northwestern Mutual client years before I joined the organization!

Northwestern Mutual’s mission is to create financial security. Having lost that as a young man, I know how important it is to have a solid foundation in place.

The same goes for your dream home. No, you probably won’t look at the construction site and say, “What a beautiful concrete slab!” Yet without that reliable foundation, you would never even dream of moving your family inside.

If the best time to plant a tree is 15 years before you need shade, the best time to create your financial plan is long before you start taking distributions.
