For almost two decades, we have been focused on building bullet proof balance sheets.
Joseph DeLisi
Certified Financial Planner ™

My calling is to help clients with one of the highest stakes games in their lives: the building and maintaining of their family’s finances. Without this it will be difficult to live a good life and protect those most important to them. This represents a failure that is not an option for my clients or me.


I have seen the world through my client’s eyes for twenty years. I have looked through the eyes of the young Physician embarking on a career. I have seen what it looks like for a retiring executive and the uncertainty that world brings. I have seen the man at the end of his life that wants to know if everything is going to be ok for his wife when he is gone.


My personal experience in life is vast, however my real experience is that which I have gained by being fortunate enough to advise so many wonderful people over the years.


My wife Jayme and I have four children and one on the way. Our entire family enjoys physical fitness and often competes in endurance races. We have a special interest in helping to raise money and fund ministries that help trafficked and abused children in the United States and the Middle East.

Sarah Dixon
Director of Operations
John Mark Fisher
Financial Representative

Sarah’s role is to make sure all promises are delivered upon. This means she handles all details of the planning process that clients are engaging in with Joe and the team.  Sarah has a unique ability where she thrives in an environment that has no predictability and is able to adapt on the fly while at all times keeping her eye on what needs to be done.  Sarah has an incredibly high desire to see to it that everyone has a great experience in working with the team.  Sarah joined Joe’s team in 2011 and immediately became the glue that held everything together.


Sarah is a native Memphian who enjoys traveling with her better half, Shawn. Her goal is to see and experience somewhere new and different whenever there is the opportunity. When not engaged with the team or traveling the world, you can most likely find Sarah at a music venue listening to live music or anywhere that involves food, whether that be the new restaurant in town or hosting a dinner party with family and friends. She loves to learn and is always looking for the next adventure!
