About Me

Hi, I’m Mike Hunsberger, the Founder and Owner of Next Mission Financial Planning. I loved my 25-years in the Air Force but wanted to do something different when I retired. I’ve always enjoyed financial planning for myself as well as for friends and family. I help clients build the life they want by balancing living today with building wealth for the future. Gradually increasing savings rates and staying invested over the long term is the best way I found to do that.

I’m going to date myself, but I still remember being excited about having a little passbook savings account at our local bank through a program at school. We’d bring in our money in an envelope each week to deposit at the bank. I was amazed that the bank was going to give me more money just for doing that. This was back in the 80s when you could actually earn interest income. I was hooked.

Part of my learning curve was purchasing insurance and very high-fee mutual funds sold by a company that focuses on military personnel and who I believed had my best interest in mind. This is part of the reason I want to help military families… I don’t want them to make the same mistakes. I desire to educate you about your options, provide advice that is always in your best interest without having to sell specific products.

I help clients build out the vision of their best life and values. We then put together a plan for how to realize their goals. We do this by ensuring that all the pieces of your financial life are integrated. That includes cash flow, debt management, investing, insurance, taxes, as well as retirement, education, and estate planning. Making the plan is only the first step. To achieve your dreams, we’ll continue to work together to implement the recommendations, monitor your progress, and make any changes necessary to keep you dreams on track.

I’ll be excited to talk with you to see if we would be a fit and work together to achieve your Next Mission.

About our Firm

Finances can be challenging… Military life can introduce an additional level of anxiety and concern.

We work with you to better align your resources and values…balancing living, saving, investing, and protecting.

We also understand that flexibility is key as your life can change rapidly, be it deployment, military retirement, career change or final retirement. We partner to help you achieve your dreams.

✅ Financial Planning: Achieve your goals and live your best life with our values-based plan

✅ Investment Management: Your portfolio tailored to your goals and risk tolerance

✅ College Funding: You've saved and prepared for college, but how do you ensure you're getting the best value for your money? We help you find schools that won't break the bank.

Next Mission Financial Planning was founded in 2021 to provide comprehensive, values-based financial planning and investment management services for senior military and military retirees.

Our foundational principle is we will always act in your best interest when giving you our recommendations. In financial planning jargon that means we act as a fiduciary.

We’ve found the best way to implement that is as a fee-only firm. As such, we are paid only by you, our clients, and not for selling financial products or making specific recommendations.

Your next mission is too important to do anything else.
