John Scott Kline is the founder and President of Advanced Financial Solutions Group, LLC (AFS Group), a full-service accounting and financial planning firm in Frankfort, Kentucky. Scott and his team have been helping clients achieve financial “Peace of Mind” for twenty-plus years. Scott accomplishes this by providing clients with his proprietary “Financial Swing Solution”. This detailed process helps clients three-fold by avoiding financial mistakes, improving cash flow for current expenses and taking advantage of opportunities while protecting their family and financial life.
At eight years of age, Scott began working with his father in a lawn care and landscaping business after school and on the weekends. His father and mother were raising four children, and times were hard. This taught Scott two valuable lessons: that if you want something in life you have to work hard for it, and you must learn to save money for a rainy day and for your future financial well-being. After high school graduation, Scott spent nine years working as a full-time volunteer Bible educator while maintaining a part-time job.
It was during this time that he and his lovely wife Mary were wed. After five years of marriage, the couple welcomed their first child Ross, and three years later their lovely daughter Savannah came along. The family made the decision that Mary would stay at home with the children while Scott worked full-time. In choosing a career, Scott decided to combine his passion for teaching and helping people with his love for numbers. In 1993 he started an accounting and tax business, what was then Kline’s Accounting and Tax Service, with the purpose of helping individuals and businesses reduce taxes, grow their business and create financial “peace of mind”.
Although he began his practice with a tax and accounting focus, in 1998 Scott had become concerned about the incomplete financial planning advice his clients were receiving. It was at this time that he expanded his business to include financial tools that would help them achieve their financial goals. Scott chose independent financial planning firm and broker dealer Money Concepts Capital Corp. This relationship has enabled him to provide comprehensive financial planning and thus provide a complete financial solution with a focus on the client’s desires and needs, not a company’s agenda.
Scott has helped thousands of households to navigate through confusing and sometimes treacherous financial waters. Scott has developed a proprietary system called the “Financial Swing Solution,” which is a customized process tailored to serve each client’s goals. It starts with his “Financial Swing Analysis” which is designed to identify where clients are having difficulty with their financial “swing” causing inefficiencies, slowing down or totally preventing them from reaching their financial goals. Each prospective client receives a complimentary financial analysis consultation.
Scott has achieved the RFC® Designation from the International Association of Registered Financial Consultants.
