Why is a “Game Board” so important?

The LEAP® Model is a unique personal finance tool designed to replicate your financial life and the world around you. Scientifically built, based upon the hierarchy of personal economics, your financial life can be organized, analyzed, strategized, and tracked for optimal results. Think of it as the DNA for personal financial success. Its creation aimed to find a single financial tool that would avoid hype and opinion but instead properly weigh and measure anyone’s financial data and provide a course of action aiming to achieve optimal results.

With the LEAP® Model, you can identify and measure your Present Position™ (where you are today and where you are going), visualize how various financial strategies may help you to improve the use of each of your dollars and coordinate all your financial decisions so that your long term results may create additional flexibility, wealth, retirement income, and asset protection.

The Benefits of the “Game Board”

By using a scientific approach to identifying the relationship between all your money decisions and the rules of money built-in, you can now experience a better way to manage your financial life. With a financial professional of your choosing, LEAP® lets you Organize, Analyze, Measure, Strategize, and Track your entire financial life!
