Taking advantage of the stock market is an incredible way to build wealth for your family. By investing in the market, you are forcing your money to work for you. Your money starts to make you more money!

But … Where do we start?

Can we do this ourselves?

Should we turn to a financial advisor?

How do I know a good advisor from one that’s just trying to sell me financial products that only benefit them?

Our guest today, Joe Saul-Sehy is going to help us with this exact conundrum.

Joe is a former financial advisor from Ameriprise. He spent 16 years in the industry so it’s fair to say that he has some expert knowledge when it comes to the financial advising world.

What are we covering today?

Joe and I review:

  • Why there is currently so much mistrust in the financial advising industry
  • The main benefits and pitfalls of working with an advisor
  • Why it's so important to ask the right questions before you start a relationship with an advisor

If we're going to be entrusting someone with our life savings, we better make sure we've done our homework. Join me today to learn more about this important relationship and how it should work for you.

  • I’m having a hard time getting my budget together properly. It makes sense that I would want to get a professional to help! It’s nice that they can do so much with this.

    • Getting professional help is a smart way to go. Not everyone has the time or the interest in diving into the personal finance details.

      I have no interest in fixing my own car therefore I’m happy to spend money for someone to fix it for me!
