Welcome to My Front Porch
Welcome. I’m Craig Wright, a financial advisor, and I’d like to invite you to experience a different kind of financial guidance. For some, financial discussions can be unfamiliar, somewhat confusing, and, frankly, a little boring. Even so, a careful evaluation of your financial well-being is a crucial foundation for pursuing your dreams. I’ve found it’s much more beneficial to have these conversations with a refreshing lemonade in hand while enjoying a gentle breeze and swinging on the front porch when the weather is pleasant. There will be ample time to run detailed evaluations, create graphs, and construct a comprehensive plan for your today and all your tomorrows.
Let’s get started by spending some time together on the front porch where families used to gather, where neighbors would stop by to visit, and where real relationships were forged. It is that “front porch experience” that breathes life into the financial guidance you will receive. I look forward to visiting with you and helping you pursue your financial dreams. There’s no day like today to get started, so come on over and sit a spell!Contact Us
