Is Tax Reform on the Agenda? It Was the Best of Times, It Was the Worst of Times The Cost of Procrastination When Special Care Is Needed: The Special Needs Trust

Welcome to Zuma Financial Advisors!

Think about your dreams as a child.  Did you want to be an engineer or a teacher?  Did that change to become an businessperson, health care provider, attorney?  Did caring for family, getting an education, health or other aspects of life alter your destination?  Life does happen doesn’t it.  We, in the meantime, still dream of vacations, education for the next generation, retirement with fewer financial stressors.  

The point is to focus on dreams and goals.  

At Zuma Financial Advisors, we listen to and plan with clients to uncover and envision dreams and goals, build savings strategies during everyday life towards pursuing those goals.  Personally, Zuma Beach in Malibu, California is my “Happy Place; a beautiful, peaceful setting we look forward to spending more time.  Therefore, as part of my monthly budget, I set aside savings each month for vacations with my family as we did recently.  The memories and realization of a goal set and achieved are priceless treasures.

We believe in practicing what we preach to deliver our mission.  Vickie and I have found with vision and commitment to implementing strategies, one can pursue great things.  For our clients, it may be a home or car purchase, a family education plan, understanding income choices throughout retirement, together we dream, discuss, and consider a variety of things, making it fun to strategize for the future!  

Our mission is to sit on the couch in a client’s new home, look out the window and smile. Or help to pay off an education loan, recognizing that the payment can go towards savings for another goal.

Paying it forward has been and will continue to be powerful.
