An introduction: the meaning behind our name

#1 blog post graphic-01.png

As this is the very first post on the Advisage blog, we feel like an introduction is in order.


What’s in a name?

Advisage RVA is named for what we do best - advise. Our tagline is “like an advisor, unlike any other advisor” and we really believe that how we serve is unlike any other advisor.  

Advise isn’t the only way our name can be broken down though. We like how the word “sage” is on the end of Advisage. Sage means wise, right? Sage advice isn’t commonplace, but it’s valuable. Sure, you can find all the pieces to your puzzle out in the world. Our value is that not only do we have all of the pieces, but we know how to deploy them for your benefit.

Ad is the first part of our name, and it’s a prefix that means toward an indicated direction, or addition. At Advisage RVA we want to put you on on the path toward your indicated direction, whether it’s by taming your taxes or boosting your books. Now watch that revenue add up!

You can read more about why RVA is in our name on our About page in the section "Our Story,"  but obviously we really love Richmond and love working with its people so we’re proud to call it home.


Going forward

Now that we’ve established who we are, what does the future look like? Well, it looks like our commitment to using education, automation, and communication to help you navigate an ever-changing world. Education, automation, and communication are living, breathing, continuous principles that we’ve employed to help you achieve your financial goals. 

Diversity is the magic. It is the first manifestation, the first beginning of the differentiation of a thing and of simple identity. The greater the diversity, the greater the perfections.
— Thomas Berry

The diversity found within our team is what brings the magic to Advisage RVA. We know that everyone (and every business) is different and therefore has something to offer. So, what’s your magic? Let’s unlock your true potential.
