Paul Adams

CEO & Founder

As CEO and founder of Sound Financial Group Paul leads a team of financial professionals dedicated to helping clients define their financial goals then developing unique, tailored strategies to reach them. Paul tells his clients often that they should always make their financial decisions based upon indisputable math and independent scholarship, not based on media hype, hearsay, or trend.

In addition to his specialized financial coaching, Paul is an accomplished speaker, conference panelist and author who has published two essential financial guides – Stop Burning Your Money; and Sound Financial Advice. He has been interviewed by Forbes, Entrepreneur and Inc. magazines to share his knowledge and passion for helping his clients maintain healthy balance sheets, stop forfeiting money unnecessarily to the IRS, and building and protecting their plans for the future. In 2014 and 2015 he was recognized by Seattle Magazine as a Five Star Wealth Manager and was also chosen by Advisor Today Magazine as one of the industry’s Four Under Forty.

Paul lives in Mill Creek, Washington with his wife, Kristen, and their three children – Andrew, Reagan and Vivian. He enjoys traveling, hiking and continuing his personal and professional education. One of his great pleasures in life is spending time outdoors with his family, for example, in 2015 he took his family on 15 camping trips, rain or shine. That is the type of "next-level" dedication and devotion he has for doing what he loves.
