Our mission is to create financial peace of mind for individuals and business owners.
We do this by educating, empowering and guiding you in your financial life.



Our Vision is to be the leader in wealth management services, systems and solutions.
Improving the financial wellbeing of individuals and businesses manifests into a
better community, economy and sustainability.

We do this because we see debt is growing per household, cash flow is out of control,
small businesses are failing and retirement goals are not being met.

At the age of 10, Stacey had moved 10 times. Her Dad was a caring giving man, but he didn’t have the financial choice to build the stability she was yearning for as a child. His job drove his life, which meant moving his family to a different city every year. The arguments between her parents were primarily around money. Once her Dad realized his job was driving his life, he started his own business. Being an entrepreneur can be an on-going battle if you don’t have your finances in order.

This integral part of Stacey’s past is one of the reasons she strives to empower financial literacy so others can drive their life to financial abundance.

When you don’t have the financial stability it affects every part of your life, but if you have financial abundance you control every part of your life.

Stacey began her career as a financial advisor in 2005. After spending 25 years in a family business in retail clothing, she wanted to become more active in helping people with their finances through education and plan development. Stacey is a partner with Path2Wealth and their first priority is protecting assets, maximizing tax efficiencies and ensuring retirement plans are in place.

Stacey has been featured on ProvinceWide with Daiene Vernile, Living Health with Dr. Phil McAllister and been involved with several groups presenting financial literacy.

Stacey is an active member of her community belonging to many groups and associations, Chamber of Commerce: Guelph, Guelph General Hospital Planned Giving Committee, Lakeside church to name a few.

She is a mother of three grown daughters and married to her best friend and partner in business John for 30 years. Stacey is deeply devoted to her family and loves to spend time skiing, hiking, reading and golfing.

Stacey Aarssen is empowering success every day!
