Frequently Asked Questions

Is this is a sales seminar?
Answer: Not at all. This seminar is designed to educate you on how to manage your land within an entity, now that so much has changed in our economy since the natural gas industry first moved into our area over 15 years ago

I already have a Family Limited Partnership (FLP) set up. Is there any benefit for me to attend?
Answer: Yes. It's a great time to reevaluate the pros and cons of having your land managed within an FLP versus a Family Limited Liability Company (FLLC). This seminar will help you understand the differences so you can make the right adjustments for your situation. 

Am I obligated to work with Stone House Retirement Income Planners after I attend a seminar?
Answer: No. You may sign up for and attend one of these seminars, provided by Stone House Retirement Income Planners, and then choose to manage your own finances or work with a financial advisor of your choice. 

Does this seminar cost anything?
Answer: No. This seminar is completely FREE, including the light meal and beverages! 

I don't want to invest in the stock market. Is this still for me?
Answer: Absolutely. This is about protecting your land and building your wealth by keeping more of your natural gas royalty income, growing it, and transferring it to your family over time. Many of our clients have invested some amount in the stock market because it’s a good fit for their long-term goals, but their goals aren’t necessarily your goals. We’ll help you design a plan that is consistent with your comfort level. 

I’m not preparing for retirement. Is this still for me? 
Answer: Yes! Retirement is merely a point in time. What we really do is help people manage their money, taxes, and assets over their lifetime.

We’ve been with you in this from the beginning.

When the natural gas industry entered our local area back in 2008, we were right here in Northeast PA, guiding our investment management clients, helping them to make smart decisions with their gas royalty income.

Over the years, we’ve grown and evolved as natural gas royalties have.

We’ve expanded our business to include tax accounting and we’ve expanded our expertise, growing from a team of a few trusted financial professionals to a few more trusted financial professionals.

We’ve been helping our clients be smart and feel at ease for over 20 years.

Now, we’d like to help you continue to be smart with your natural gas royalty money with Fuel Your Future Financial Planning.

Learn More about Chad through His Stone House Story.

I've been blessed in life to be surrounded by people who have supported me. From a young age, I had the support of my parents as I tested out entrepreneurship with a lawn mowing business. Rather than spend my money on toys and candy, my Dad taught me how to invest and grow my earnings and it sparked a life-long love of the stock market, business, and investing.

In college, I used an athletic and academic scholarship to graduate debt free from college. It was not easy to play football and graduate in 5 years with a Bachelor's Degree in Chemical Engineering and a Master's Degree in Engineering Management, but it paid off when I was hired by Procter & Gamble in 2004. I began my career making diapers at the plant in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, eventually making my home in Cincinnati, Ohio.

While P&G has been great to me over the years, I still find myself daydreaming about helping people with their financial planning, leveraging all the lessons my Dad taught me as we invested my lawn mowing money so long ago. After years of daydreaming, my wife, a brilliant and successful marketer, finally convinced me to pursue my passion and supported me in becoming a financial adviser.

After researching several firms, nothing felt right. I needed a team that was really behind me; I wanted to truly help people make better financial choices, I wanted to have a hand in the portfolios I managed for clients, and I didn’t want to get paid through commissions for products I recommended to my clients.

One day I was talking to a friend of mine and he mentioned an investment advisory firm that works with a lot of Procter & Gamble employees and retirees. In fact, a partner of the firm, John Burke, had worked for P&G for over 15 years, spending his last 5 years doing financial advising part-time. I didn’t expect much when I sent an email to John at Stone House Retirement Income Planners. I figured he might respond, we might have a good chat, and that would probably be the end of it.

But it was just the beginning. John asked questions about me and about my life. He asked me about what I wanted and helped me understand my options for getting there. Over the next few weeks, it became clear that Stone House was a really great company with a passion for doing what is best for the client. When I first saw their LifeStack system, I knew I wanted to be a part of the Stone House team. Holistic financial planning - not just investing - can be overwhelming, and LifeStack makes it feel natural. I could tell it was developed by someone who had worked at P&G for a long time; like most P&G systems, it makes the complex simple and focuses on continuous improvement.

Fast forward to today...as a proud member of the Stone House team, I am now a financial advisor focused on retirement income planning. With their support, I've created a schedule that allows me to stay in my current role at P&G and after hours, I help people understand their benefits and retirement options.

With all the support I've been given over the years, I hope you'll give me the chance to support you, too. I'd love to "engineer" your ideal retirement.
