Helping Clients Preserve Their Assets, Grow Their Wealth, and Take Care of Loved Ones

Financial planning is not a product—it is a process. Just as life changes, so too, does your financial plan. Working with recent widows, career changers, and even those just getting started, we believe that everyone—no matter their stage of life—deserves an independent consultant.

About Us

Our responsibility is to understand your “why” and implement financial strategies that help you live your best life. Just as every fingerprint and snowflake is unique, we believe your financial plan is unique to you.

Stewardship is the key fundamental that we hold steadfast on our team. We aim to empower our clients to make wise life and money decisions based on their current life stage, goals, ideals, and value systems. As independent financial consultants, we are not tied to any product or service. We always act in the best interest of our clients, serving as stewards at all times.

Timothy Johnson 

Financial Advisor, RJFS

Timothy is originally from South Bend, Indiana and graduated with honors from Bethel College with degrees in both Business and Liberal Studies focusing in Christian Ministries. While attending school, Timothy was introduced to the financial planning industry by his golf coach. Upon graduation, Timothy moved to Knoxville and assisted Travis Cullman in building the Knoxville office.

Using Biblical stewardship principles regarding money, Timothy specializes in working with career changes and recent widows. Timothy believes that financial planning is a process and not a product. The relationship between a trusted advisor and his clients are paramount to any affiliation with investment products or companies. Some of the areas of focus include tax planning-helping clients systematically lower their taxes owed, estate planning-ensuring clients’ wishes are honored, risk management-helping protect clients from potential pitfalls, and investment planning-designing strategies to grow wealth and help clients meet their goals.

Outside of working with clients, Timothy enjoys playing golf and studying golf course architecture. Most of all, he enjoys spending quality time with his wife, Keilan, and their son Grayson. They live in Knoxville and attend First Apostolic Church of Knoxville.
