I’ve recently joined the XY Planning Network, which is a network of Fee-Only Financial Planners who want to serve Generation X and Generation Y clients, people who typically aren’t served well by the traditional investment management industry because they don’t yet have a large amount of money to invest.
This really aligns well with my philosophy. I’ve had folks say that they’d give me a call when they came into some money. That’s not where financial planning should be. I’ve always thought that was rather like making a decision to wait on going to the gym until after one has gotten into shape. It’s working through the process that gets the results you want.
Good financial advice from an experienced CFP® Professional can get you to where you want to be, making good financial decisions along the way. And rather than charging a percent of your assets, can be a reasonable monthly fee, often less than you may be paying for your cable or cell phone bill.
