1. Description of Services
Fearless Finance is a personal finance advice service that allows you to understand how you can organize your finances, track your spending, and understand your financial situation to improve your financial wellbeing. Fearless Finance allows you to input your information and gather some information for free (without charge). However, if you want to speak with an advisor or link more than three accounts to the App, which contains your data, you must pay a monthly subscription fee.
Atwood Financial Planning, LLC offers personal financial planning services on a subscription basis through its brand, “Fearless Finance”. Subscription-based services combine financial planning with a free platform (for up to 3 linked accounts) and spending tracker mobile app that includes real-time support from one of our Associates.
The base subscription, “Smart Starter,” is offered at no charge and includes access to the mobile spending tracking app where users can link up to three accounts and can opt to receive notifications and alerts related to their spending. Subscribers to Smart Starter can also text an Associate with informational questions. If the Associate deems the question to be too complicated for a text response, the Associate can suggest meeting online for 30 minutes ($95 per 30 minutes), at the discretion of the subscriber.
“First Time Adulting” – This subscription service offers all of the features of the Smart Starter base subscription in addition to a Cash Flow, Balance Sheet and Retirement Contributions inventory in a thirty-minute session with an Associate. The Associate will look for areas where the Subscriber can save money or spend less in their Cash Flow as well as a recommendation on how much to save each month. Associate will assess weak areas in the Subscriber’s balance sheet such as the need to increase cash reserves or pay off consumer debt. Associate will also provide recommendations on the percentage of contribution a subscriber should make to his/her retirement plan.
“Leveling Up” – This subscription service offers all of the features of the First Time Adulting subscription and additionally provides a full hour of time with an Associate per year instead of 30 minutes. In that one hour of time per year, subscribers will receive the Cash Flow, Balance Sheet and Retirement Contribution inventory as described in First Time Adulting (30 minutes with an Associate), and either a general investment portfolio inventory focused on asset allocation, fees paid for investment services and investment strategy, or the user can discuss a financial planning topic of his/her choice or split the remaining 30 minutes over several short calls with specific questions over the course of the year-long subscription.
