Clint Haynes, CFP®
President, Certified Financial Planner®
Thanks for checking out NextGen Wealth. Feel free to reach to me through our Contact Us page or on Linkedin. I always enjoy meeting new people and learning about how they got to where they’re at today. I’m also happy to make introductions if there’s a good fit.
Who am I? It seems like I can be many different things depending on the day, but for my profile's sake, I will stick with my professional title of Financial Planner (although you could go with Financial Advisor, Financial Consultant, etc., but they’re really all one in the same). I’ve actually been in the financial planning and financial services industry here in Kansas City since 2001. It’s all I’ve ever known as a career choice and I hope it stays that way for as long as I’m capable.
So if you are still reading my profile (appreciate it), you’re probably thinking to yourself that you know all kinds of financial planners or financial advisors and most seem to be no different than the next. I would agree with you in that assertion as it’s definitely true for many individuals in the financial planning field. With that said, though, please keep reading below and I will do my best to differentiate myself.
I am married to my best friend, Christa. We live in Lee’s Summit, MO and I grew up right down the road in Raymore. Christa grew up in Wichita and crazy enough I actually knew her parents before I knew her. We love food, wine, and hanging out with friends. Thanks again for viewing my profile and I hope you check out the rest.
After being in the industry a few years, it became quite apparent to me that if you didn’t have a $1,000,000 or $2,000,000 in investable assets, you weren’t going to get much help from the majority of financial planning firms out there – and if you did, most likely it was going to be the same generic advice they give to anyone no matter their situation.
With that being the case, I wanted to create a practice that was centered on working with individuals who didn’t exactly fit that mold, but were certainly on their way and needed quality individualized planning advice – the truly overlooked and underappreciated. So that’s exactly what I did in creating NextGen Wealth, where we specifically cater to successful business professionals, entrepreneurs, and small business owners.
It’s been an exciting calling as I’ve been able to build a great financial planning practice working with individuals and families who are all going through similar situations and share many of the same needs, wants, and goals. We strive to serve those individuals who do not think they have the assets or the need for a financial planner. While this type of planning used to be reserved for only the wealthiest investors, it is our passion to bring these services to the people who need it most.
We have a real passion working with HENRY's (High Earner's Not Rich Yet) and DINK's (Dual Income No Kids). However, we do help clients from all walks of life no matter their age.
