We help travel-loving young families live a life they never want to retire from

We Aren't Your Traditional Financial Planner



Our Core Beliefs:



Don’t build your savings without building your life.

You don’t want to climb a ladder your whole life to realize it was leaning the wrong way. Get clear on your values so you know where you want your money to take you.

Experiences > things.


Your favorite stories come from experiences, not the things you buy. Don't let the consumerism culture dictate how you spend money.  

More money ≠ more happiness.

True wealth is the ability to spend your time in a way that is aligned with your core values. More money can't replace your kid's missed soccer games. 

The concept of retirement is obsolete.

Don't defer your life until "retirement". Work part-time. Take a year off. Start a business. Travel the world. Who cares? Never live your life wondering "what if"?

Build optionality into your financial plan.

Nobody can predict where you will be in 30 years. Live in the moment and plan for optionality in the future. 

The most important financial decisions occur in your 30s and 40s.

Life transitions = money transitions. It's better to prevent financial mistakes than to fix them in 20 years.

Meet Our Founder: Jake Northrup, CFP®, CFA, CSLP®

Hi there! 

My name is Jake - I’m originally from Massachusetts and moved to Rhode Island in 2019 with my high-maintenance wedding planner wife and dog (yes - both high maintenance).  

I previously worked at a financial planning firm in the Boston area helping families with ~$5 million+ in net worth which taught me a very valuable lesson. Time is finite, whereas money is infinite. 

We get trapped sacrificing our finite time in the endless pursuit of infinite money when we don’t know how much money is “enough”. We make unnecessary sacrifices to save for “retirement” because that’s what we’re supposed to do… right? I’d argue no.

And thus, Experience Your Wealth was born. I launched EYW in 2019 to help travel-loving young families experience their money throughout their life and not just in “retirement”. 

We're shaking up the financial planning industry by bringing modern, life-centered financial planning advice and personal CFO-level service to our clients. We are completely remote, paperless and meet clients over Zoom with frequent guest appearances from kids, dogs, cats and whatever fun animals that may be around your home. 

Disclaimer: We can't work with clients who don't like dogs 🙅‍♂️
