Firm Description

Many people believe that financial planning is only for the wealthy; the reality is most anyone can benefit from a well-crafted financial plan, regardless of age or income level. We believe that everyone deserves Competent, Trustworthy, and Affordable advice. We are Lodestar Financial Planning; a fee-only financial advisory practice located in beautiful Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Unlike most other fee-only firms, we don't require you to have an investment account under our management. That's right; while we do offer asset management services, we do not require a certain amount of assets for planning or investment advice.  Rather, we provide investment advice within a financial planning context.

As a fee-only practice we do not sell investment or insurance products, nor do we receive commissions or any compensation from third parties,  we simply charge for our time. Our plans are tailored to the needs of our clients and we do not impose a minimum fee for our advice.

Our services are accessible to people just starting on their financial journey, growing families, pre-retirees, do-it-yourselfers, and anyone in need of a one-time review, second opinion, periodic advice, or ongoing financial coaching.
