As Seen In



There are no backdoor commissions or hidden costs associated with my service. Clients will never be sold a product, and I never collect a commission. 


Unlike 90% of financial advisors, I'm not associated with any financial company or broker dealer, so I give you straightforward and unbiased advice.

Flat Fee

I charge one transparent, flat fee for all financial planning and investment management. No AUM fees based on how much in assets you have.

Comprehensive Financial Planner

The vast majority of "financial advisors" are simply salesmen or money mangers. At Baskin Financial Planning, I take a holistic wealth management  approach to every aspect of your financial well- being. 

The Difference of Baskin Financial Planning

Erik Baskin
Founder, Financial Planner

In 2018, after graduating the U.S. Air Force Academy, I began my professional career as a hospital administrator. As I was sitting in my apartment in Cheyenne, Wyoming I quickly realized that the military wasn't going to be a career for me. I knew that I wanted to start a business, I just didn't know what yet. I had to build something that was mine, and gave me time and location autonomy. For the next 9 months, I read business and entrepreneurship books and looked up business ideas online. One book in particular called the $100 Startup by Chris Guillebeau said that you should find something that people naturally come to you for, and something that you are passionate about. This was a lightbulb moment. For me, that thing has always been investing and personal finance. From there on out, I was dead set on building a financial planning firm to help people live their best life, and align their money with their values. I began building Baskin Financial Planning in early 2019, turning what began as a personal passion in financial planning into a business that was formally launched in 2021.  


When I'm not busy building financial plans, I keep busy by spending time with my wife Shelley and my two Greyhounds Rafa and Poppy, coaching hockey, working out, playing golf, hunting, going to country concerts, or reading a book on my favorite subject- personal finance.
