"Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans." ~ John Lennon
John Lennon was probably right about life and "plans" in his 1980 song Beautiful Boy. That said, we're in the business of collaborating with clients to plan money around lives (not the other way around). And though life rarely goes according to plan, the process of planning allows our clients to pursue the things money can't buy: possibilities, passions and peace.
Jason Howell Company was recently featured in the New York Times and we are proud to offer our fee for service option (OPTION 1) for clients who want financial planning only.
Below are descriptions and pricing for our FEE FOR SERVICE and TRADITIONAL SERVICE options:
OPTION 1: (FEE FOR SERVICE)
60-90 DAY ROADMAP: Comprehensive Financial Plan
The process of creating a financial ROADMAP usually takes about 8 to 12 weeks depending on complexity.
The final report includes a one-page executive summary, a written analysis and recommendations summary of about six to eight pages and about forty pages of supplemental supporting schedules.
We document actionable analysis and advice on:
- Retirement planning- estimating income, savings and the cost of your medical care

- College planning - approximating the costs and presenting funding options
