About LifeRaft

At Mainsail Financial Group, we empower clients to take control of their finances and plan for a retirement by design. But what if there was a simple way to build your financial knowledge and take control of your finances for those who may be early in their journey?

Adam and Brandon of Mainsail Financial Group are bringing many of their strategies to the LifeRaft Education Platform by providing straightforward, easy-to-understand course material. Adam and Brandon will guide you through the steps and considerations you need to make as you create a thoughtful financial plan, including learning about investments, social security, estate planning, taxes, and so much more!

Why Financial Education is Critical

From speaking to many clients at Mainsail Financial Group, and even some of our own advisors, we have learned that often finances are not a discussion that we’re used to. While many grew up with what they needed, very few families are set up for financial freedom.

Talking openly about finances is something critical in today’s world to avoid financial mistakes. We believe that talking openly about finances can prevent hardships and can be as easy to start as talking about money around the dinner table. Unfortunately, many resources and books covering financial topics are too complicated, leading to inaction. Alternatively, many resources are oversimplified, causing folks to not be able to prepare for the whole picture.

That’s where the LifeRaft comes in.

The truth is that financial freedom doesn’t have to be rocket science. However, by taking action today and taking control of your financial education, you’ll be ready to build a pathway to a successful financial future!

By joining LifeRaft, you’ll be ready to:

  • Learn how to get started with investing

  • Understand how to pay off, manage, and utilize debt

  • Create an effective distribution strategy

  • Build out tax strategies for retirement

  • Map out your Social Security

  • Plan your next steps for wills, beneficiaries, and estate documents

“Joining LifeRaft is taking that first step in your financial journey. By working through the exclusive course materials, you’ll be in a position to take control of your finances and be on a strong path forward to retirement and beyond.”
