Welcome to W.J. Yost Financial Services ...

... and thank you for visiting my website.  My name is Jason Yost and my team and I have been helping Dave Ramsey listeners in Savannah, GA and the surrounding areas for over 10 years. We serve clients from Savannah, GA to Pensacola, FL to Beaufort, SC and all over the U.S. including our military overseas.  We look forward to seeing if we can serve you and your family.

As a Dave Ramsey SmartVestor Pro we provide the same type of philosophy and responsible financial planning that you’ve come to expect from Dave Ramsey, Financial Peace University and The Dave Ramsey Show.

Our goal is to help you answer your questions and put a plan in place to help you reach your goals. Ask yourself the following:

Do you have all of your financial pieces organized and in one place where you can easily view and update them?

Do you have enough in savings?  Are you protected if something happens to you?

Do you know where all of your investments are and how they work together?  Do you have confidence in the way you are invested?

Do you know what it takes to reach financial independence, and what does financial independence mean to you?  

What about your kid’s education, and your other goals?

If not, you can ... and we can help.

We can help you set and work towards reaching your financial goals, keep track of your investments, and help you better understand your financial options.

To learn more please contact us directly at 912-201-3753 or send me an email at jason@wjyost.com.

We look forward to helping you make the most of your circumstances and plan for your family’s future.
