Business Advisory Services from Cornerstone Financial Group

You’ve achieved the American dream, owning your own business and forging your path to provide for your family, your future.  But are you ready for what's next?  Our business advisory services can help enable your continued success in the next chapters of your business, your life and your legacy.

If you are like most business owners, a majority of your wealth is tied up in your business. This puts you in a different position than others that have pensions or more liquid assets such as a 401(k).  Are you relying on the proceeds from the business to support your retirement?  Are you aware of your business's value and the tax consequences of a transition?   We can help.  Our expertise is in coordinating your business and personal planning details and providing order to the process - maximizing your business value, providing insight on the transition process and helping you meet personal income and legacy goals throughout your life.
