Sage Consulting Services









At Sage Consulting, Margaret takes a holistic, integrated, comprehensive approach to both financial planning and life planning, thereby addressing the whole of her clients' lives based on their needs and goals. She provides COMPREHENSIVE FINANCIAL PLANNING, CUSTOMIZED FINANCIAL STRATEGIES, and HOLISTIC LIFE PLANNING SERVICES - to help clients determine what is important to them, address their financial and life planning needs and goals, and manifest their dreams. 

COMPREHENSIVE FINANCIAL PLANNING SERVICES address what Margaret has identified as five cornerstones to a sound financial plan and a five-step planning process, beginning with a Financial Discovery Survey - both Personal and Business, which provides a process for clients to identify their financial needs, goals, and priorities. 

CUSTOMIZED FINANCIAL STRATEGIES are designed to help meet clients' financial needs and goals in alignment with their objectives and values. Margaret’s independence allows her to customize these strategies based on objective and impartial advice and a wide array of non-proprietary financial products and services.  

HOLISTIC LIFE PLANNING SERVICES help clients more deeply explore their inner life and life path, identify what they want to develop, accomplish, and manifest in their lives in alignment with their values, life purpose, dreams, and visions, be on path consciously and purposefully, and make a meaningful difference in the world at large. Margaret takes a holistic approach in addressing all aspects of one’s life through a dream-mapping process and workbook she has developed, beginning with a Holistic Discovery Survey to help clients evaluate if a holistic life planning and manifestation process would serve them and their life path.

HOLISTIC LIFE PLANNING SERVICES SUMMARY

Holistic Life Planning is a creative and integrative process that involves going within, exploring one's inner landscape, developing a blueprint of what one chooses to develop, create, accomplish, and manifest in all areas of one's life in alignment with one's deepest values, highest wisdom, soul purpose, and what will serve the greater whole. 

As stated by James Redfield in his book The Celestine Vision





What is your highest vision - for yourself, your family, your greater community, and the world at large? What are your deepest values and life purpose that guide your life choices and actions? What are your passions? Are you following your compass of joy? What qualities do you want to develop, goals do you want to achieve, and dreams do you want to manifest? How do you want to make a meaningful difference in the world? What is emerging in you? What is evolving in you?

Margaret invites you to contact her to learn more about and engage in a "Dream Mapping" process and workbook she has developed to help you answer these questions for yourself, be on a conscious and purposeful path, and live your dreams!

As stated by Maria Quischpe, from John Perkins’ book The World Is As You Dream It



Margaret also teaches on the topic of "prosperity and abundance consciousness" and "the energy of money" and welcomes you to contact her to learn more.

“Let your soul inform 
your money and 
your money express 
your soul.” 
– Lynne Twist,
The Soul of Money

“Holistic” refers to the treatment of any subject as a whole integrated system. It references the theory that reality is made up of organic or unified wholes that are greater than the simple sum of their parts.

SERVICES OVERVIEW 

"Physicist David Bohm called this the holographic universe: every aspect of our lives has a reflection in every other aspect. This means how you do money is how you do life."

Maria Nemeth, Ph.D., 
The Energy of Money
"Money is simply energy.
It is here to be used wisely, consciously, and with enjoyment."
- Maria Nemeth, Ph.D.,

"If our inner work is great, our outer work will be great." 
- Meister Eckhart
​“We must always go within to our highest wisdom to chart our path in life. Each of us must find our own confirmation of a World Vision that follows not from fear or scarcity, but from some greater part of our memory.” 

“The dream is everything. The way we live is determined by the way we dream.”

"We are here to be creators; We are here to infiltrate space with ideas and mansions of thought; We are here to make something of this life.” 
– Ramtha
