About Ryan Stith, CFP®

My name is Ryan Stith, and I am a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™. I am also the founder of Pivot Point Wealth. I founded Pivot Point Wealth to help families, like my own, develop a better understanding of their financial lives in a way that provides clarity, simplicity, and purpose in their decision-making. I believe this is best achieved when our decisions around money and life match our values.

We are all on a financial journey guided by the actions and decisions we make along the way. As a financial planner, I feel it is my job to serve as a guide, whether that means helping you discover what values are truly important to you or simply acting as a signpost to point you in the right direction when you come to a crossroads.

On a more personal note…I’m a ginger by birth, planner by nature, and teacher’s husband by choice. I was born and raised in the small town of Brandenburg, KY where I live with my wife (DeAnna), our two kids (Madeline & Henry), and our dog, Penny. I’m a huge University of Kentucky basketball and football fan (Go Big Blue!), as well as loyal English Premier League football follower. In my spare time, you’ll find me outside running, in the garage tinkering and finding any excuse to use power tools, or on a patio enjoying time with friends and family.

Patience and Perspective

June 21, 2019

“Markets take the stairs up and the elevator down” is one of the first lessons learned in the self-study course that is Behavioral Finance 101. Progress and the climb up tends to feel slow and hardly noticeable, while drops tend to happen more quickly inducing feelings of uncertainty, fear, panic, and a race to the […]
