At Jim Garrison Financial we help you to understand all aspects of personal finance so you can make informed decisions.

Whether you have significant assets to manage—or if you are just starting to accumulate wealth—we have the experience and solutions to move you forward and closer to your financial goals.

Prior to entering the financial services field, Jim Garrison spent over 30 successful years of sales in the fundraising industry with TIME, Inc, Reader's Digest, Inc, and World's Finest Chocolate, Inc. He started as an independent sales representative and progressed to Divisional Sales Manager covering several western states.

The goal of our practice, your success, is accomplished through coaching, encouraging, and teaching our clients the fundamentals of investing and managing personal finances. Jim's investment philosophy is based on simple, "baby steps". These include establishing an emergency fund, getting your debts under control and 3-6 months of living expenses set aside.

We will provide you with the tools, knowledge, and professional advice to help you achieve your financial goals.

Jim's approach to a well-balanced life is based on the five "Fs" of life.
