Provident Financial Planning


Paul S. Michel, CFP®


☏  (469) 500-5200

Paul created Provident Financial Planning in 2017, however, starting a boutique financial planning office has always been his goal since the very first day he started working for an investment company in 2008. 

He and is beautiful bride Marchelle and fun-loving daughters Collins, Cora & Quinn live in north Dallas/Fort Worth where they spend most of their evening time on the playground swing-set. 

Prior to working with clients at Provident Financial Planning, he was a Financial Consultant to high net worth clients as part of the Fidelity Investments Private Client Group. He focused exclusively on building complex financial plans for over 400 families across many states.

Paul is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ and has created hundreds of individualized financial plans for high net worth families entering retirement and high-income families accumulating wealth. He also specializes in working with clients who are new to wealth due to inheritance, completion of residency and business success. 

With over a decade of experience working for regional and national investment firms, Paul has witnessed that clients often experience:

  • Too Much Cost, Not Enough Value
  • Too Much Speculation, Not Enough Investment
  • Too Much Complexity, Not Enough Simplicity
  • Too Much Counting, Not Enough Trust
  • Too Much Business Conduct, Not Enough Professional Conduct
  • Too Much Salesmanship, Not Enough Stewardship
  • Too Much Management, Not Enough Leadership
  • Too Much Focus on Things, Not Enough Focus on Commitment
  • Too Many Twenty-First-Century Values, Not Enough Eighteenth-Century Values
  • Too Much "Success," Not Enough Character

The listing of these themes originated from the book 'Enough' by John C. Bogle. Ask Paul for a copy of this book.
