Every Journey Starts with a First Step 

Behind every great idea there is a clear path that has helped to guide and direct that idea into something greater. For Jay A. Finke, CFP®, founder of Clarity Wealth Management, the path towards the practice started with the purchase of a 98-year-old cattle farm. Jay and his wife discovered that the farm had become overgrown and it was difficult to get to various places on the farm because the paths were obstructed by over-grown weeds, bushes, and trees. With proper planning, preparation, tools, and personnel, Jay and his wife were able to clear the paths, allowing them to experience and manage the farm in a way that they could have never imagined. 

It is out of this experience, that Jay and his partner Matt created The Clear Path Process and Clarity Wealth Management with a goal to provide their clients financial paths that lead to tomorrow, today. Similar to those who helped Jay clear the paths on his farm, Jay and Matt serve as financial guides to help their clients walk the right path to a comfortable financial future and retirement.
