Hi, I'm Shawn

Hi, I'm Shawn Tydlaska. I founded Ballast Point Financial Planning in 2016 as an independent fee-only practice dedicated to helping young professionals and families set and achieve their financial goals. 

At Ballast Point, we are passionate about using personal finance as a tool for empowerment to help you take control over your financial life. Together we will work as partners to get you on a path towards financial independence. As a fiduciary to you and your goals, we will help provide peace of mind around your money so you can focus on the things that you love in your life.
