How do I know what my consultant is working on?

During the initial engagement process, we will have regular meetings with you and your team to set expectations and update you on our progress and activities. Because we are your partner and believe in keeping our client base small, we are always here for you to answer questions and provide support.

How do we start the engagement?

We begin with an engagement letter to set the stage for the mutual relationship between you and RockRidge Financial Services.  Here, we establish the scope of the work, time to be spent and expectation of our deliverables to you.

How do you charge for your services?

Each level of consultant has a different billing rate. We bill hourly and invoice monthly. We generally request a small deposit when the engagement letter is signed, to ensure mutual commitment to the relationship and process. We are committed to assigning you the right level of consultant for your needs so you can stay on budget and get the best service.
