About Don Hance Jr., EA, CFP®
Welcome! I am a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™, an IRS Enrolled Agent, and the founder here at LifeSighted. We are a fiduciary financial planning and tax prep company focused on helping clients simplify their finances so they can focus on living a life that they love.
Before starting LifeSighted in 2017, I spent several years working at a firm with a diverse set of retired, high net worth clients. Through the conversations I had with clients during that time, I learned a great deal about their histories, including how they built and maintained their wealth. Among the trends that stood out the most through those conversations is that many clients wished they had spent more time enjoying the journey of life, rather than pushing off their dreams until retirement. Wanting to make sure that my generation did not fall prey to the same regrets, I made it my mission to bring life-focused financial planning to those who wanted it, regardless of portfolio size. And thus, LifeSighted was born.
Since starting LifeSighted, I’ve been recognized as a Top 10 Young Advisor to Watch by Financial Advisor Magazine and elected as the 2020 President for the Financial Planning Association of Los Angeles.
I’m a proud graduate of the Marshall School of Business at the University of Southern California with an educational emphasis in Entrepreneurial Studies. I also obtained a Certificate in Personal Financial Planning from UCLA Extension, earning it with distinction (their way of saying I had a good GPA).
In my free time, you can find me developing software (only for personal use so far) or taking advantage of the pleasant Southern California weather by playing baseball, softball, and volleyball or enjoying a nice hiking trail or a day at the beach.
