I always say that I am an anti-financial advisor, but I used to be a financial advisor. I didn’t leave because I wasn’t making money, I was at the height of my practice when I left. It wasn’t because it was stressing me out either, it was out of pure integrity.

“I couldn’t keep living a lie. I would never teach you anything that I’m not doing myself.”

“There’s a lot of assumptions that ruin everything and it is what poked little holes of doubt in my financial planning, and I had to leave.”

“When the market is going up, don’t put money in. It’s too expensive.”

“Figures won’t lie, but liars will figure.”
