About Ben Hockema, CFP®

Everyone has uncertainty. What does the future hold? How do I balance today and tomorrow? How do I provide and plan for my family? How do I stop worrying about the financial side of my business and instead focus on creating the impact I feel called to make?

I work with individuals, families and small business owners on their full financial picture; everything from cash flow and paying for education to saving and investing for big goals such as retirement, to individual and small business tax planning so that my clients can gain clarity and develop a path that is unique to their own goals, hopes and dreams.

Do you know how your financial life fits into your LIFE? Are your finances working toward your fulfillment, or standing in your way? I work to empower my clients to make decisions about their money that helps them achieve their goals, find fulfillment in their finances, and prepare for their future, whatever it holds.
