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 Wade Calvert, CFP®, CVGA

What does wealth mean to me?

Wealth to me means freedom. Specifically, I believe that you are “free” when the cash flow from your investments is enough to cover all your essential expenses. When you reach that point, you have the freedom to choose how you want to spend your time. Maybe it is going on a family vacation, or perhaps it is pursuing a passion project; whatever drives you and energizes you, you are now able to pursue that without having to think about the financial implications of a particular decision. In my mind that is freedom.

What inspires me about the work I do?

Ever since I was a child, I have been fascinated by investing and the markets. My mother joined an investment club when I was 13 years old, and I have been immersing myself in information ever since. My experience was unique, and unfortunately, most people never learn about finance or investing. Our schools fail to teach this critical skill.

I have a passion for investing and for teaching people about the markets. I get inspired by being able to share a new way of investing, focusing on cash flow, that many people have never experienced. I believe this empowers people and makes them better overall investors.

Why do I work with business owners?

Entrepreneurs and business owners think differently. They are go-getters and calculated risk-takers. They have different needs than other individuals. Different needs require different guidance.

My father ran his own lifestyle business for many years, and it allowed him to live a comfortable life. However, when he was ready to exit no one was there to guide him through the process. Most financial advisors get paid by managing assets, yet most business owners have most of their wealth tied up in their business. The traditional advisory model is broken.

I have worked tirelessly to create a new model that allows me to work side by side with business owners. The result is creating a more resilient company that allows the owner to maximize the value of their company and to exit confidently, whether it is in 1 year or 20 years.

Fun fact most people may not know about me:

I enjoy hiking and traveling and try to visit at least one new national park every year.

Dawn Mabery Chestnut, CFP®, MSPFP

About Dawn Mabery Chestnut, CFP®, MSPFP, MPAS™, CFEI

Financial advice can be intimidating and complex, but I’m not your average financial advisor. I strive to make managing money simpler by speaking plainly (no jargon!) and offering genuine help instead of hard sales tactics. I prefer a more informal approach – without the stuffy suit.

When I’m not crunching numbers, you might find me tending to my backyard garden with my ducks waddling around, jogging (though trotting is more accurate), or biking with friends – an activity made even better at night thanks to colorful glow-in-the-dark lights we put on our wheels. My recent fascination is learning to sew clothes. I also have an amazing and supportive husband.

I am a natural planner and numbers lover, so it’s no surprise that I became a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ with a master’s degree in personal financial planning. I actually enjoy pouring over document details and making sense of the data. To me, it’s like putting together a puzzle. My favorite class in school was accounting – numbers don’t scare me. Beyond that, my work allows me to get to know people – their values, goals, and challenges, beyond their paperwork.

My brief behind the facts and figures journey is this. Growing up in a large family where money was tight inspired me to teach basic financial literacy voluntarily. My adult students wanted advice on retirement or social security (more info than the basic curriculum provided). This lit the spark for me to start my financial planning business! I still teach financial empowerment in underserved communities by contracting with local non-profits. I’ve had my own business for over ten years.

These experiences taught me that many people can find money talk difficult and sensitive. I’m here to provide honest, objective, and judgment-free advice for your money questions (big or small). No question is too embarrassing for me – I’ve made my share of money missteps too and I also just didn’t know a lot about money because it was not taught to me.

As a fiduciary, I’m committed to putting your needs first. With your commitment, follow-through, and patience, I can help guide you through the confusing world of money so that you can make informed decisions in reaching your idea of success.

Thank you for considering me as your advisor. Call me for a free discovery call where you can share with me about your financial needs, and I’ll share with you about my services.

Mike Metzger, CFP®, CRPS®

About Mike Metzger, CFP®, CRPS®

When I got started in financial planning over a decade ago, I didn’t understand how the industry could ignore real estate as a valuable investment. It was from that early experience that I knew I didn’t want to conform to the industry norm.

In order to offer objective advice, it was going to take rebuilding the financial practice model – to include real estate investments.

Owning real estate investments myself, and having a spouse as a Realtor, I know the benefits that real estate brings to the overall financial picture. Real estate professionals are the hardest working people I know. But with so many pieces, it can be difficult to make the most of your business, properties, investments, and family life.

Having helped hundreds of individuals, I bring a real estate focus to help successful real estate professionals seek to reduce their tax burden, increase their cash flow, and put a plan in place so that they can retire one day pursuing a steady and consistent income stream.

As your financial partner, my goal is to give you the financial confidence to focus on what you enjoy most!
