Building relationships with clients is what drives us. We utilize a broad spectrum of risk and investment products to help our clients achieve financial goals for themselves, their families and their business.
Building a business is one of the greatest challenges you’ll ever face. Becoming profitable is a challenge, but maintaining consistent growth over time is the true test of success. The time and money you invest in your business should be protected and rewarded.
You know what it takes to build a successful business. It takes vision, preparedness, skills and desire – not to mention a focused dedication to achieving your goals. If you are like most business owners, you’ve worked hard and made many sacrifices to grow your business. That’s why you should put just as much energy into protecting it as you did building it.
Whether you have an established enterprise or you are just starting- up, it’s never too early or too late to begin planning. Personal, retirement, estate and succession strategies all have to be considered while plotting your course.
Ask yourself these important questions:
- Do I have a plan for my business when I retire?
- Is my business capable of continuing its success in the event of my or my partner’s untimely death or disability?
- Is my family adequately protected if something were to happen to me?
- Have I done everything I can to attract, retain and reward the key employees that are critical to my business?
If you answered “no” to any of these questions, you may want to consider implementing a formal business planning strategy. Proper planning can help you protect your business, attract and retain key employees, and help ensure that your business transfers in the manner in which you choose.
No business plan is complete without a financial strategy for the unexpected. Start by exploring all your protection options. Then develop a long-term strategy that can help protect the continuity of your business should you, a partner, or key employee decide to retire, leave the business, or unexpectedly dies or becomes disabled.
Most business owners spend the majority of their time working in their business instead of on their business. We can help take care of the business protection needs that are critical to the long-term success of your business.

Our team approach helps ensure proper life care planning for the individual with special needs and their caregiver. We provide education, resources and financial solutions for families so they can focus on caregiving.
Special Care Planners works with you and your professional advisors – your banker, accountant or financial planner, lawyer, social workers and health care providers – to review your financial picture and offer options that make sense for your situation.
The Special Care Planner receives advanced training and information in estate and tax planning concepts, special needs trusts, government programs, and the emotional dynamics of working with people with disabilities and other special needs and their families.
If you are caring for a person with a disability or other special need—a spouse, a child, sibling, dependent parent or other relative or friend—we can help. The SpecialCareSM program, developed exclusively by Massachusetts Life Insurance Company (MassMutual), is an innovative outreach initiative that provides access to information, specialists, and financial products and services that can help improve the quality of life for people with disabilities and other special needs and their families and caregivers. By following a person-centered life care planning process, you can keep the person with a disability or other special need as the primary focus, and develop a life care plan that helps enable that person to obtain the best quality of life possible.
Call out: A life care plan is a coordinated program of social, medical, financial, and legal strategies for people with disabilities and their families that continually changes to adapt to the needs of the individual throughout his or her life.
