Why Rise Up?

"I will be here as your partner to develop inner trust with your finances and use money to rise up and live more intentionally."

Annelise Bretthauer CFP®, CDFA®​, M.B.A.

I was once told by a wise man, “We spend our time working to make money, then we spend our money trying to buy time.” Investing in your health and your future self today, can pay unlimited dividends for your life. 

Money and financial decisions are overwhelming. We take the time to get to know you, what motivates and learn about what’s important to you. Let’s leave the past in the past. We meet you where you are today to help you where you want to get to tomorrow. 

Part of my job is to disarm the fear that often comes with talking about money and taking action to mold your financial future. Together, we develop, implement and monitor a plan that fits your needs and pursues your dreams. 

Part of our mission is support the chronic disease community. We do that through patient advocacy, speaking, being a guest on podcasts, and writing guest blog posts. If you have an idea or event you’d like Rise Up to participate in, send us an email!
