IQ + EQ = MQ
Money Quotient focuses on both the practical and emotional factors that either enhance or hinder financial satisfaction and quality of life. According to our underlying philosophy, an individual’s “true wealth” (MQ) is comprised of two essential components: financial knowledge (IQ) and emotional intelligence (EQ).
Therefore, rather than using net worth as a snapshot of financial status, we take a more holistic approach to measuring financial health and maximizing quality of life.
With this goal in mind, we have created a distinctive 5-E Financial Life Planning Process for nurturing successful client relationships.
In addition, we support your implementation success by providing
a library of practice management resources,
frequent continuing education opportunities, and
access to a community of like-minded professionals.

In his long career at Stanford University, Albert Bandura, world renowned psychologist, has made tremendous contributions to our understanding of human behavior and motivation. One of his main areas of focus has been the concept of self-efficacy, a person’s belief in his/her ability to succeed in specific endeavors.
The strongest foundation for the financial plans you create will always be your clients’ heightened awareness of the nature, influence, and importance of their values. Therefore, in your discovery and data gathering activities, it is essential that you engage your clients in a process of thoughtful reflection to help them identify and clarify what is truly most important to them as individuals.
