About Ben Brown, CFP®, EA

Entelechy is a flat fee-only financial life planning & investment management company. Our mission is to help people use money as a tool to realize life goals and reach their full potential.

No sales. No minimums. No hidden fees. No nonsense.

We believe in the power of financial planning as a process that continuously adjusts to the life events of our clients, and that our best work is accomplished for clients on an ongoing basis when they simultaneously engage us to fulfill their investment and tax strategies.

Financial Life Management

We call this integration of financial planning, investment management, and tax planning & preparation Financial Life Management, and charge one flat annual fee for this service that isn’t arbitrarily tied to the value of your investment portfolio or net worth. Unlike other advisors, we aren’t compensated by the sale of financial products, by charging 1-2% of assets under our management, or by a complexity calculation that attempts to justify higher fees based on your income or net worth. Our fees are based simply on the value of the comprehensive services we provide to clients who want to fully optimize their financial lives.

About Michelle Smalenberger, CFP®

I have a passion for helping others develop a path to financial success!

Through different lenses on your financial picture, I want to help create solutions with you that are thoughtful of today and the future.

I have seen in my life the power of having a financial plan while making slight changes of direction from time to time. I believe you can experience freedom from anxiety and even excitement when you know your finances are on track.

Those who are a great fit for our services are families working hard to provide for and support each other so they can be financially successful. Individuals who want to ensure they are making the right decisions to secure a strong financial foundation to build upon for the rest of their life are also a great fit.
