I have worked for three different financial advisory firms through my professional career. One common theme that I have observed throughout my career is that financial literacy amongst the majority of people I speak to is much lower than I would like to see. Financial illiteracy in this country is a large part of the cause for financial fraud as well as improper personal financial planning. I am trying to do my part to help increase financial literacy.
In discussing money specifically through this blog I try to focus on broad concepts. I speak in broad concepts, because every person has a unique situation and often times there is not one correct answer. Trends change, tools change, but concepts rarely change.
