Who We Are

Founded in 2000, the Garrett Planning Network has grown into a national network of hundreds of hourly-based, Fee-Only financial planners.  Our mission is to help make competent, objective advice accessible to all people. The organization has a staff of five full-time employees and a host of professional coaches and consultants, who facilitate discussions on our private intranet forums, lead numerous webinars each month and participate at our annual conferences. Through these channels, subject matter experts share best practice ideas in all areas of financial planning practice management, including: operations procedures, technology, marketing, counseling and communications, compliance, productivity, business planning, and financial planning technical matter.


We also provide our member advisors with tools, templates and software, as well as, eLearning courses and access to hundreds of continuing education events.  However, the lifeblood of the Garrett Planning Network is its member advisors.  They are an incredibly vibrant, supportive, connected group of professionals of diverse backgrounds who’ve come together for the greater good and well-being of their clients and themselves.  Imagine tapping into the collective wisdom of hundreds of experienced, educated, thoughtful, creative minds – that’s what’s available through the Garrett Planning Network.
