Are you smart?  I don't mean in finances, I mean in general.  Ask yourself again, are you smart?

I remember years ago attending my first educational seminar about investments.  There my appetite was wetted enough for me to want more and more until I turned my passion for financial education into a career.

This may come as a shock to some, but financial planning is mostly education.  I believe that anyone can make a good financial decision as long as they have the tools to make that decision.  In other words, I believe that people are smart.

What I would like to accomplish here in this blog is education.  One of the best ways to do that is to draw on experiences that I have had over the years of being a financial planner.  Here I will give the tools that you need to make good decisions about your financial future.

Warren Buffet once said "Risk comes from not knowing what you're doing".  Keep in mind that every situation is different so please contact me for a personalized plan.
