Your Advisors

Natalie Slagle, CFP®

Can you remember one of your first experiences with money? What was so memorable about it? My exploration of personal finance began at a local grocery store. I was a bagger, paid $5.15/hour. My first paycheck was 12 hours of “paper or plastic”. Ok, so that means 12 hours x $5.15 = $61.80. Nice! That's a pair of jeans at Abercrombie and Fitch! But low and behold, I got my paycheck and it was less than that. I took it to my father and said, 'What the crap, Dad? These crooks took my money!' My dad sat me down and explained line item by line item what each deduction from my check meant.

I knew from that moment that there was this whole universe of personal finance that I wanted to master for myself. Little did I know at the time, it would lead me to where I am today - working in personal finance for nearly a decade, obtaining investment licenses, and earning my CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ designation. Along the way, I started dating a guy who shared the same interests in money empowerment.

Fast forward a bit to today: a collective desire to share our secret sauce with other driven couples.

Natalie and I connected while helping her study for an investment license. I must have been a good tutor because it led us all the way down the aisle. That’s one investment that paid off!

I’ve worked in the financial industry since 2010 having earned my CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ designation. During this time, I have helped wealthy clients reach their financial dreams. But one thing has always bothered me - why is no one working with our generation? After many conversations with friends and colleagues, one thing is apparent. The financial lives of the next generation are complicated. Think life event, and it ALWAYS involves money. We are at a point where we are making good income, getting married, buying our first home, relocating for work, negotiating salaries, and starting our own businesses.

Natalie and I are fortunate to understand the benefits of being financially aligned and we are excited to share our philosophy with you and your partner!

FAQs

Why work with Fyooz Financial Planning?
Your relationship is one of the most valuable and vulnerable aspects of your life. It deserves time, energy, and resources to make it flourish. Financial Wellness in your household is essential to a successful relationship. Who can support you and your partner? What are your options?... (newsflash: your parent’s financial advisor, the individual who talks about your 401(k) plan once a year, and your insurance agent are pretty much it). Fyooz Financial Planning was created to fill this void. Our mission is to help couples use money as a tool to become closer, not tear them apart.
How do you know if someone is a good financial planner or advisor?
Just about anyone can use the title “financial planner," and in today's world, it doesn't take much to start posting financial advice on a social media platform.  As a consumer, you have to be careful where and who you are getting your information from.  Most people think that all financial planners are “certified”, but that isn’t true. Just about anyone can use the title “financial planner.”

Only those who have fulfilled CFP® Board’s rigorous requirements can call themselves a CFP® professionals. CFP® professionals are held to strict ethical standards. What’s more, a CFP® professional must acquire several years of experience related to delivering financial planning services to clients and pass the comprehensive CFP® certification exam before they call themselves a CFP® professional.  Oh, and by the way, both Natalie Slagle and Dan Slagle or CFP® professionals. 

It's also important to make sure the person or entity you get advice from is from an institution that is regulated by the U.S. Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) or the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority FINRA.
What does it mean to be “Fee-Only”?
The Fee-Only method of compensation is the most transparent and objective method available. This model minimizes conflicts and ensures that your financial planner acts as a fiduciary. Fee-Only planners are compensated directly by their clients for advice, plan implementation and for ongoing management of assets. All NAPFA members are required to work only within the Fee-Only structure, accepting no commissions for their work.
Why do I need a financial plan?
Some people decide to do their own financial planning, but you may want to seek help from a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional if you:
  • Want to better manage your finances, but aren’t sure where to start
  • Don’t have time to do your own financial planning
  • Want a professional opinion about the plan you’ve developed
  • Don’t have sufficient expertise in certain areas such as investments, insurance, taxes, or retirement planning
  • Have an immediate need or unexpected life event
Where are your clients located?
We work with clients from coast to coast. Our highest concentration of clients is in Minnesota, California, and New York.
