Small Business Focus

"What do you need to start a business? Three simple things: know your product better than anyone. Know your customer and have a burning desire to succeed." -- Dave Thomas

At Legacy Wealth Management, we believe small businesses are paramount to a small town like Charleston. You are the lifeblood of our community, driving job creation and providing our small town with fresh, innovative ideas and solutions.

As a small business owner, we know you’ve got a lot on your plate, between working long hours and ensuring the viability of your business, all while handling an incredible number of tasks of your own. There can be constant pressure to always perform at the top of your game—in every area of your business.

For this reason, we would love to partner with you to take some of the endless tasks off your plate. We know as a small business owner you are always striving to deliver more than expected. We want to provide that service for you as well. We encourage our business owner clients to think of us as the first phone call to make when navigating any major financial decision. Our financial advisors can help you address tax mitigation strategies, succession planning, improving your company’s retirement plan, and diversification of your wealth outside of the business. Our role is to make your life simpler and easier and to serve as a central point of contact for all your financial professionals.

We can provide you with seamless financial advisory services including:

  • Budgeting & Cash Flow Analysis
  • Tax Planning
  • Calculating SEP Contributions
  • Retirement Planning
  • Risk Management
  • Succession & Exit Planning
  • Retirement Plan Advisory Services
  • Estate & Legacy Planning
  • Collaboration among your financial professionals

In Charleston, we’re a community that takes care of each other. By working with us to manage your finances, you can gain invaluable time that can be better spent on necessary business operations and gain confidence that your finances are in good hands.

Above all, we partner with our neighbors to invest in our small town and make sure we can keep enjoying the great benefits your small business brings to us. When you do better, we all do better.
