Welcome to Steady Climb Financial Planning, a fee-only financial planning firm located in Boise, Idaho, serving clients locally and also nationwide through virtual meetings. We are dedicated to serving high earning professionals in their 20’s-40’s. Helping them develop a plan that balances their goals for the future while living their best life today.

If you have questions such as:

  • What do I want my future to look like and what financial decisions do I need to make to get there?

  • I just received a large bonus, should I put it towards paying down my mortgage, invest more for retirement, or something else?

  • What’s the best way to balance saving for my kid’s education while meeting my own financial goals?

  • Should I refinance or consolidate my student loans? How do special student loan programs like PSLF, PAYE, and ICR work?

  • I haven’t looked at my home, auto or life insurance policies since I bought them. Do I have the right coverage?

  • I make a decent salary but I don’t feel like I’m saving enough each month, what should I be doing differently?

Balancing your financial priorities can be a challenging task. It helps to have someone who understands your current situation as well as your goals. We take the time to get to know our clients so we can help you craft the strategy that balances your future goals while living your best life today.
