Our Story

Nobel economist Richard Thaler observed that people are predictably irrational  and do not always make rational decisions, even if they may be good for them. 

Guilty as charged. I know that I put off making some of the most important financial decisions of my life - forming a trust & will, getting a financial advisor, purchasing life insurance, to name a few - for longer than I should have. The only reassurance was that I was not alone - when I realized that nearly 43% of American adults do not have any life insurance coverage for their families. And another 18% take the shortest path by signing up with whatever their employers offer - often Group Life - which is rarely enough, and typically goes away when you change jobs.
