Hope the second time's a charm...
Let me begin by announcing that I am NOT:
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â 1.Â A financial planner, consultant, or advisor
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â 2.Â Nor have I been, affiliated with Kiplinger or NAPFA
I am currently unemployed or, as I like to phrase it, between entrepreneurial ventures because it sounds impressive.Â The intentÂ of this article is to inform and educate only.Â I do not advocate one financial planning service over another.Â
With that being said, I do hope this article isn't flagged for SPAM as its early incarnation was.Â Perhaps there is a financial planner amongst us who was miffed that I was informing folks about the FREE day-long live discussion.Â
On with the article...
