About Brittany Goodwillie, CFP®

Hi, I’m Brittany. Prior to starting Autumn Financial Advisors, LLC, I worked as a planner at a personal financial planning firm in Maryland where I learned to love helping families reach their goals and earned my CFP® designation. Meanwhile, my husband, Erik Ringo, worked at a global investment management firm where he gained extensive investment experience and earned his Chartered Financial Analyst® (CFA), Financial Risk Manager (FRM), and Chartered Alternative Investment Analyst (CAIA) designations. We enjoyed our jobs but wanted to move to Michigan to be closer to our families and decided to start our own firm together.

At Autumn Financial Advisors, LLC, we will take the time to explain your finances and empower you to make the best decisions with your money. Having both a dedicated Financial Advisor and Portfolio Manager on our team helps us to give you the personalized attention we believe is important. We are passionate about simplifying your life and would love to see if we can help you in any way.

On a personal note, I enjoy running and most outdoor activities. Erik and I recently got into backpacking and hope to try cross country skiing soon! I love spending time with my family and friends now that I’m back in Michigan.

Visit our website to learn more about our firm, and schedule a call to get to know me personally. We can decide if we would be a good fit, and if not, I’d be happy to refer you to someone who may be. The important thing is for you to find someone you feel comfortable with so you can create a financial plan and invest your assets in a way that will help you reach your goals. Hope to talk to you soon!

A Guide to Withholding Tax from Your Income

January 28, 2019

The IRS requires you to pay tax throughout the year as you earn income.  If you are an employee, your employer withholds income tax for you based on your instructions on Form W-4.  If you are self-employed, you may need to make quarterly estimated tax payments to avoid a penalty at the end of the year.  It’s usually a good idea to review your withholding at the beginning of the year or after life changes to avoid any surprises at tax time.
