Our Process

The process at Benson Financial begins with getting to know you and your needs.  This usually entails learning about you and your business concerns and goals.  We will learn and evaluate your current situation in the areas you desire us to look at and discuss your concerns and objectives.  We offer a complimentary one to two hour introduction meeting for this purpose and to evaluate whether it is beneficial for us to work together.

 

If your need is simple and we can address it quickly, we will do that.  If it's more significant, we will work with you to identify your objectives and priorities and propose some next steps.

 

We normally bill by the hour, but we may bill by the project if appropriate. The hourly rate varies depending on the amount of work involved and its complexity.  We do not bill for short phone calls or emails, or for a first visit of one or two hours.

 

We help you stay on course to financial growth and security.
