About Me

Hi, I'm Don Hance Jr., 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.

About our Firm

Our mission is to help clients live a life they love by learning about what’s most important to them and then using their finances as a tool in guiding them toward accomplishing their dreams.

We believe that everyone can benefit from life-focused financial planning and that it shouldn’t only be for the ultra-wealthy. Anyone has the power to make positive steps forward with their finances, regardless of portfolio size. It’s knowing what to do, and more importantly, actually doing it that can make the biggest impact between a life you like and a life you love.

By utilizing our knowledge of personal finance to help people create lives that they love, we believe we can do our part to make the world a happier, more stress-free place. We find that developing meaningful and long-lasting partnerships with our clients tend to have the following domino effect: they are happier, their minds are freer from worrying about money, and in turn, they positively impact the lives of the people around them.

All LifeSighted advisors sign a fiduciary oath before providing any financial planning service. We minimize conflicts of interest by refusing to accept commissions or kickbacks of any kind. On top of that, we work hard to put ourselves in our client’s shoes by striving to be the type of advisor we would want for ourselves and our families.
