Message from the FounderDebi Baydush

The Life, Evolution, and Spirit of Our Company

When I was very young, my mother asked only that I do my best. I took that message to heart and set out to prove to my grandfather and great-uncle that it wasn’t necessary to be a man to succeed in business and investing. My experience with big brokerage houses motivated me to create a client-centric firm that provided fee-only objective advice. A strong independent streak and lessons learned from raising three children drove a firm culture that values being smart, exercising compassion and, critically important, having fun.

Gratifyingly – BSW mirrors that ambition, providing a best in class experience for clients, colleagues, and employees; a fee-only model to ensure objectivity; and carefully guided conversation that engages, challenges and nurtures individuals to tune out noise, identify goals, then build a plan to achieve them.

Perhaps easier said than done. But I do know that having the right partner creates a safe space for honesty. Thoughtful discussion gives rise to new awareness. The dots connect and the endgame comes into sharp focus. I myself know the truth of this because two years ago I realized my life-long dream of a ranch in the mountains, off the grid, where I live with the freedom to wander where I will (in the buff if I please!) with just the occasional moose or bear to see me. Having your dreams come true is better than you might imagine and something I hope all of our clients and staff will experience. Here’s to BSW continuing as a critical partner on the journey to identify and manifest life’s full potential.
