About Me

Hi, I'm Greg Young. I was born in Virginia and grew up splitting my time between Cape Cod, Massachusetts, and Virginia. I spent winters playing hockey and snowboarding, but spring and summer were when the Cape was like Heaven on Earth: golf, ponds, beaches, and hockey were five minutes away! Don’t forget New England pro sports!

After attending Bryant University, where I studied business management and psychology, I put my newly acquired degree to work by joining the world’s greatest Navy. I served onboard nuclear-powered submarines in the Engineering Department and was a Navy-qualified scuba diver. I found quick success by taking pride in my job and contributing to my team.

Sadly, my Navy endeavor came to an end after being diagnosed with two types of cancer and being medically retired. Just a couple weeks after my diagnoses (same day, different doctors, twice the fun) my wife Erin, a high school teacher, had our first daughter. Now, it was really time to put that degree to use.

I embarked on a new journey as a financial advisor with a major insurance provider and broker-dealer. My second daughter was born and our family became complete, and Disney trips ensued! While managing the planning and investments for my team, I continued my education and achieved the Certified Financial Planner® professional designation, Enrolled Agent, and Chartered Financial Counselor.

My education has taken me as high as earning my Master’s Degree in Advanced Financial Planning, concentrating in Taxation. My next educational journey is the pursuit of my Ph.D. so that I can be best equipped to communicate, educate, and create new, practical knowledge.

About our Firm

Our mission is to empower service-oriented professionals and families to achieve true wealth. We guide clients to optimize their financial lives providing confidence, fulfillment, and freedom to pursue their dreams.

As fiduciaries, our team at Ahead Full Wealth Management has a moral and legal obligation to do what’s in your best interest–every time. We are not transactional and don’t receive commissions of any kind, so there is no rush to sell you anything. We are committed to making sure every meeting has value.

Sometimes it helps to turn to someone with a financial compass who understands the nuances of wealth management. As experienced professionals, we value sharing our knowledge in a caring, accessible, and useful way.

Planning with us is a four step process that follows the tenets of appreciative financial planning:

1. DISCOVERY: An introductory meeting and discovery meetings to learn your strengths, successes, personal, and professional values. This gives us the opportunity to determine if we’re a good fit.

2. DREAM: Articulate your values and objectives to answer the “why” and “what are we trying to achieve” questions. We establish your time horizon and capacity, appetite, towards risks and your vision for your business, family, and future. We will identify goals and objectives to create an actionable strategy.

3. DESIGN: We’ll layout different options with their anticipated outcomes. We’ll establish action items and receive your feedback to help determine which course to take, then share timelines and metrics that empowers you to achieve your goals. We'll also build a policy with guidelines to keep your portfolio on track and manage emotions during the ups and downs.

4. DELIVERY: After you choose your plan, We'll periodically check in on your progress. This allows you to identify what’s working and what's not, re-balance the portfolio to within design confines. We'll adjust your strategy as-needed and communicate any progress to make sure you never get off course.

Once your course is set, we will continue to help you on your financial journey. If things change, we will help you adjust your course to align with your desired path. You’ll have ongoing access to our services for questions, to share in life’s joys and challenges, or to be a sounding board. We will go on the adventure with you.
