There are four key elements to Jeff's philosophy:

A strong personal relationship between advisor and client is imperative. Trust is the key to success.

Unless a client has a clear picture of current assets and liabilities, they cannot set reasonable goals. Know what you own and why.

Creating a financial plan is not difficult, but sticking to the plan can be very difficult without a strong advisor/client relationship. Communication leads to understanding.

The key to investing is persistence. Those who stick to a sound plan will find success.
