Jason DeMarre’s articulate financial advice can help clients build a retirement fund, save for their kids’ colleges, or reach a passel of other long-term goals. With today’s deal, he’ll spend up to 12.5 hours fashioning a personalized plan of action for each client over the course of one year. A series of about five face-to-face planning sessions commence with a one-hour introductory meeting, followed by a profile meeting, during which Jason will build a detailed SWOT analysis to highlight a client’s portfolio’s strengths and weaknesses and to counter potential financial threats, such as the fire-breathing dragon living inside their filing cabinet. Then, he’ll unveil a full plan for a monetary makeover at a 90-minute strategy session, after which he’ll meet with clients again to pick products to invest in, such as stocks, bonds, and high-value Monopoly properties. Finally, a closing meeting will discuss plan implementation. ING Financial Partners is not a captive agency; Jason can pick and choose products from all financial services, not just ING, to assure the best possible match.

Wedding and engagement shots come to life under the careful eyes of each photographer as they seize rare moments and trap them in frames to be displayed like trophies from a hunt. High-school, child, baby, and family portraits keep precious memories locked in time for clients, who can peruse an online gallery of their images after their session.
