Personal Notes

There is an old expression that says “If you knew better, you would do better”

I have been working in the financial services industry for nearly 20 years and have learned that people have gaps in their knowledge and understanding of money. I’ve seen this gap create issues, problems and/or unrealistic expectations. Also, having taught business and finance at the college and graduate level with over 10,000 student classroom hours to my credit has taught me people are not educated on the subject of money. Only a limited number of states require formal classroom training in personal finance. As a teacher and a Registered Financial Advisor this represents a problem to be solved. I have accepted this as my unique challenge and opportunity to share my knowledge and abilities with those of you that need to know, those of you that want to know and those of you that don’t know what you don’t know so that we all can live better lives.
