About Justin Green, CFP®, MS PFP

The real me.. (keep scrolling for the professional version)

In my free time, I love to spend time with my fiancée, family, and friends. I’m usually in a gym or somewhere by the water during the summer (I hibernate during the winter). I love to read business and personal growth books, listen to podcasts, binge documentaries, or watch Boston sports during my downtime.

My fiancée is a travel nurse, so we currently bounce around the United States every 13 weeks.

I believe that life is too short to take it seriously all the time, so I try to inject humor often. A little laughter goes a long way.


Certified Financial Planner™ Professional

Master of Science in Personal Financial Planning, Kansas State University

I decided to pursue my interest in personal finance a few years after receiving a Bachelors of Science in Sports Management from the State University of New York at Cortland. I was living in Manhattan, Kansas (the Little Apple) at the time and I decided to enroll in the Personal Financial Planning program at Kansas State University.

In 2016, I completed the education requirement of the CFP® certification and entered the profession at a small fee-only firm on Cape Cod, MA. During that time, I became a CFP® Professional after fulfilling all of the necessary requirements. In December 2019, I graduated from K-State with a Master of Science in Personal Financial Planning (MSPFP).

At some point, I will probably add more designations and add to the alphabet soup after my name.

Why fitness coaches & fitness entrepreneurs?
“I had a decision to make. Pursue fitness coaching as my future? Or become a financial planner?”

When I was around 23 years old I realized I was in the wrong job and the wrong industry. I went to school for Sports Management but for the past 3 years I had been selling cheerleading uniforms…

Since I was a teenager, I’ve been passionate about two things: Fitness and Finance

Therefore, I had a decision to make. Pursue fitness coaching as my future? Or become a financial planner?

It was very close! But ultimately I chose to keep fitness as my passion and continued to consume fitness coaching content.

Fast forward to March 2021 when I launched Assist FP, I found myself in a position to work with anyone I wanted to.

And I chose you!

I chose online fitness coaches and fitness entrepreneurs.

Because you’re my people and I believe the work you’re doing is going to change lives!

About Alex Rezzo, CFP®, CFA, CPA

Like so many of the great XYPN financial advisors you’ll find on this platform, I founded Andante Financial to provide best-in-class, independent financial planning and investment management services. But what makes my firm unique? Here’s three things to start:

-After-tax performance is never an afterthought
We use robust tax-loss harvesting tools and processes to enhance your after-tax returns.

-Investment management: we take it personally
We construct personalized investment portfolios for each client; none of our investment management is outsourced or “copy and paste”.

-Our values go beyond an account statement
10% of Andante Financial fees are donated to charity and we donate to charities that clients care about so we can redefine “shared values”

When I work with a client, I take the responsibility of helping them protect and grow the fruits of their labor seriously; I earned my CFP®, CFA, and CPA marks to expand my knowledge and make the most of any opportunity I get to help a client succeed. But my favorite part of this work is curating a network of clients that I truly enjoy working with and rooting for.

Please reach out for an intro call – I’ll enjoy the opportunity to chat and help you get the right person in your corner, whether its me or not.

About Christina Empedocles, CFP®


If you want to drop off a some documents, and in return get a few pie charts with hundreds of pages of confusing filler — this is not for you.

If you want to take control of your finances, learn the tools to grow assets, and be an active collaborator in your financial future — then you’re in the right place! Insight’s mission is not only to craft the perfect plan to fit your life and goals, but to educate you on the mechanics of how money works so that you’ll no longer be a by-stander in your own financial life.


This program is part education, part rollup-our-sleeves planning, and all collaboration.

1. We’ll talk. I get to know my clients really well and want to understand your motivation, biggest fears, values, and aspirations. This is essential for building an effective plan, because when you add your real life to your money you’ll have a real reason to act.

2. I’ll put you to work, and our time together could feel a little like being back in school (the most relevant, totally empowering, useful school you’ve ever attended!). From our meetings, you’ll be given highly targeted ‘homework’ that will get you digging into your financial data, history, and habits, revealing a clear picture of what’s happening.

3. We’ll look at your goals, and determine timeframes, costs, and assign numbers. So, what was once just a dream, transforms into a detailed blueprint.

This process is hands on. If you want to do something ambitious and start putting the pieces in place for your extraordinary future — the time to start is now, and the most important ingredient is you. This plan will work, because you’ll help create it, you’ll understand it, and you’ll know the steps to take.

Our work will be formatted for easy ‘project management’ that reads with the intrigue and clarity of an illustrated travel guide. Contrast that with the thick, impenetrable plans that are output from ‘Big Finance’ and you’ll know instantly, why my strategies work: Because I’ll take you from Point A to Point Z highlighting all the manageable steps in between. Big Finance offers plans that will leave you confused and dependent. Which feels better to you?

Insight will be your ongoing mentor, to make sure your action items get done. We’ll be your partner in monitoring and adjusting your course of action, to make sure you don’t fall behind.
