“I had been working with individuals and small businesses on tax saving strategies for years before I really became aware of the financial planning profession. As I began to delve further into the extensive services that a fee-only firm like HFG provides, I became more and more convinced that I had a lot more to offer clients than just tax advice. By combining tax planning with retirement planning, estate planning, education funding, and the other holistic financial services HFG provides, I’m able to add value and simply life for my clients at a whole new level” -Paul Hansen, CPA
