Sanger D. Smith,<br/>BFA&#8482;, APMA&#174;, CEPA&#8482;<br/><span></span>

Sanger D. Smith,

Financial Advisor and Founder

Sanger is driven by a passion for helping family business owners and operators make smart financial decisions that align with their values. Growing up with a financial advisor father, Sanger's fascination with decision-making began early on, even as he navigated some of his own youthful misadventures, like spending a year's worth of allowance on a skateboard he couldn't ride.

In his professional journey, Sanger has experienced every facet of a family business lifecycle. He's been part of family business as a non-owner, he's been an owner, and he's even sold a family business. This comprehensive experience enables him to deeply relate to his clients, understanding their unique challenges at every stage in their family business journey.

After spending 10 years at his father's firm and then taking over as owner for another four years, Sanger founded Decidedly Wealth in 2022. His mission was clear: to focus on family businesses and build long-term relationships that support them through various phases of ownership.

Sanger believes in guiding clients on how to live a life that reflects their values, today, tomorrow, and even after they are gone. 

He graduated from Texas A&M University with a degree in Agricultural Economics and is a Certified Exit Planning Advisor. Sanger jokes that he chose his major because it was listed first alphabetically, only to discover that Texas A&M had a Financial Planning program in the same department.

Today, as a financial advisor, Sanger dedicates his life to helping others navigate the complex world of money decisions while infusing his practice with the same lightheartedness and humility that defined his journey.

With his extensive experience, unique perspective, and genuine commitment to his clients, Sanger leads Decidedly with a clear vision, helping ensure that family business owners find the financial significance and personal fulfillment they deserve.

Wyatt Sharpe

Financial Planning Associate

Wyatt has always had an innate drive to understand the world and find out the best way of living in it. Curiosity is hardwired in his psyche. He enjoys seeking to understand some of the most important aspects of life in order to master them, and then sharing and teaching those things to others. Learning about the practice of financial planning and advising peaked his curiosity due to the serious and important nature of money. Seeing that he could seek understanding and use that understanding to help others with such a complex and important topic as wealth creation was interesting to him. 

He loves to learn, but his love doesn't stop there. Teaching what he learns and sharing what he believes is important, is a larger driver of why he is in the people business. That is the very essence of what financial planning and wealth management is. People will assume he is just good at numbers being in Finance, which isn't necessarily false, but it's not the reason he embarked on learning the craft of financial advising.

From day one, he understood that life is deeply personal to each and every person on this planet and how each one of us uses our money is deeply personal as well. He respects and truly believes in the value-oriented focus Decidedly has, and its relationship to seeking significance and not success. Success is transient and worldly, whereas significance denotes the pursuit of some higher ideal and mission and he believes that is what God calls each and every one of us to do.

Financial advising is about more than maximizing returns or minimizing the risk of investments. It is about understanding each and every person we work with and then connecting their values and purpose with their use of their money, time and all other resources.
