~ Your Financial Independence & Wealth Management Architect ~

My Mission: Postively Impact Your Life & Legacy Beyond the Balance Sheet

I am passionate about changing our world one individual, family and business at a time by helping you continually align values and intentions with financial decisions and actions

Understanding, protecting & optimizing your true FINANCIAL CAPACITY  frees you to pursue your life's purpose & heart's desire, at each stage of life.

It's my privilege and pleasure to help you envision, then best prepare for the years and life ahead. Regardless of what the future holds, planning by design vs. by default, unconstrained by possibly false assumptions and boundaries, helps assure the best possible outcomes, with maximum flexibility, choice and dignity along the way.

Your plan may involve certain complexities best left to experts to design,implement and monitor. But most simply put, I help you make smart decisions with your money.  Who can afford not to?

Our Process: Develop a goals and values-based, holistic planning BLUEPRINT facilitating clarity, conviction and confidence. 

HOPE is a great feeling, but not a very good STRATEGY. As four-letter words go, PLAN is the one you want, if to be as SURE and CERTAIN as possible is your GOAL.

Sheila and her team excel in serving:

  • Pre-post retirees with wealth management and income optimization through a unique strategy designed to preserve and manage your wealth, protect against risk and provide you with predictable steady income for life, and
  • Widows, divorcees, single professionals, couples and families wishing to educate their children and help assure current lifestyle and retirement security/flexibility for themselves, and
  • Individuals wishing to plan their estates in a most efficient and self-directed manner.

Having your "Financial House" in order requires a well-thought out and expert blue-print, a solid foundation, and skillful, disciplined and attentive execution/management.

We'd like to be your PARTNER  - your Financial ARCHITECT, if you will - in that effort.  

Your secure & envisioned future isn't just our mission; it's our PASSION!

Sheila Roesler featured speaker at Northwestern Mutual's 2012 Annual Meeting

Sheila is pictured here presenting to peers on Northwestern Mutual's cutting-edge Retirement Distribution Strategy at the July 2012 Annual Meeting in Milwaukee, WI. This honor culminated almost two years of heavy involvement in the launching and rollout of this industry-leading capability.

The patent-pending modeling and related strategy integrate not only investment management (which must look different in the 'spending' vs. 'accumulation' stage for most of us!), but also the very real risks of extended longevity and long-term care events, cash management needs, and legacy desires. Hundreds of possible inflation and investment return are also modeled vs. our simply 'estimating averages' in a straight-line fashion. The strategy helps those with adequate assets and income resources optimize - and assure to the extent possible and practical - that retirement income generation, risk management, and estate planning strategies optimally position one to realize retirement financial security and legacy goals and thus, lead as worry-free and enjoyable a life in this 'next third' as possible.

Sheila was chosen to help launch, refine, train on and publicize this strategy as one who is already heavily utilizing the component principals and strategies actively in her financial planning practice. If you are approaching 50 or beyond (or a great 'younger' saver), and are wondering how to best position yourself to live your ideal life, it's never too early to begin setting the stage, nor to optimize your outcomes even if already knocking on the door of, or actively into retirement. Sheila would love to share these capabilities with you and others you know who might benefit from our perspective and passion around this and related planning topics.

Plan Now for Your Future

Life’s complexities leave little room for "standard" approaches, so Sheila uses a four-step approach in working with her clients:

Planning Horizon graphic

Sheila Roesler's planning process is unique.  She starts at a different plane than other advisors:  above the planning horizon, focusing on helping you clarify your Mission, Vision, Values and Goals.

Then she focuses on the issues below the horizon – Strategies, Tactics and Tools.

By staying above the horizon and gaining clarity around your goals, Sheila can help you make wise choices about the solutions below the planning horizon.

Working in the best interests of her clients is Sheila's business, and she takes this role very seriously.

Whether you're concerned for your own planning needs, your family or your business, Sheila Roesler can help you find the right answers.
