At 360 Wealth Consultants, we strive to empower our clients to make informed financial decisions through education, communication, and service that exceeds expectations.

We view ourselves as your knowledgeable partner in all things financial; we will help you develop and implement a plan based on your specific needs.
Building out your financial profile and retirement plan is very similar to building a house. Michael Shelton is our President and lead Financial Consultant, but you can think of him like your general contractor who will oversee every aspect of your financial project. Michael will meet with you to learn about your current financial situation and your goals for the future. Once he understands your needs, he will put together a custom financial plan just for you. He will present your plan, gather your feedback and input, and then tweak it as needed. After you and Michael agree on your financial plan, he will work with his team of professionals to implement it. Just like a general contractor has electricians, plumbers, carpenters, and painters to step up and help build a house, a financial consultant has specialists that they can work with as well. Michael has established relationships with strategic partners such as attorneys, tax experts, insurance advisors, and more.
Our goal at 360 Financial Solutions is to provide independent and sound investment advice, whatever your current financial situation. Michael and the entire team will develop a personalized strategy that’s on target with your needs by mitigating risk and implementing strategies to help reduce your personal financial exposure. We will confidently implement your financial plan completely and responsibly as we partner with you every step of the way.
We are excited to turn your FINANCIAL problems into SOLUTIONS.
