A Beautiful Mind.

What four individuals, living or dead, would you like to eat dinner with the most?

I would meet and eat dinner with my ancestors from 10 generations ago. There would be 1,024 of them. I guess we’d play rock paper scissors to narrow it down to the final four.

What are you currently watching on Netflix?

The latest season of “One Day at a Time” before it was canceled, “All American” because I never catch it during normal programming, and waiting for the new season of “Ozark.”

What will I learn on this call?

It’s hard for anyone to look at a website and say “yes, this is for me, please help me with my money”.  Finances are deeply personal, and talking to someone who can listen and determine what will help you the most is just one simple and confidential call away.  In 15 minutes or less you will have a better understanding of what’s available to you and if you are a good fit for Facet. 

If it’s clear we can help, and you want to learn more about working with Facet, then we will share what the service will cost based on the complexity of your finances.
