Serving Independent RIAs Since 2004

Our Company

We only serve Independent RIAs across the US.

We are a small boutique firm just outside of Portland, OR. We have more advisor clients on the east coast than the west. So time zones do not matter. Just deadlines. In fact, a copywriter working on your project might be closer than you think.

We are excited to work with you. Separate your firm today!

How everything started.

How everything started.

In the early 2000's, Matt Peterson was helping semi-retired father begin a new venture. Wally Peterson had 30+ years of experience within the financial services industry. Much of which was as the Vice President for a major firm.

“'Make it a great day' was (and still is) the phrase my father uses on his voicemail message. I also remember him using it early on in his long financial services career. He would mention it at the beginning of presentations to his advisors.”
- Matt Peterson

Matt discovered a strong need for better marketing within the independent RIA space. He launched Make It A Great Day, Inc. (MIAGD) in the fall of 2004. Over the years, MIAGD has evolved with great partnerships, new cutting-edge technology and best-in-class services.
