Get Free Financial Planning Advice
Most everyone can benefit from one-on-one financial planning advice provided by a competent professional who works on a fee-only basis.
It would be particularly sweet to get such advice for FREE. Now you can.
The Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards is offering free financial planning clinics in Washington D.C. on September 13, 2008 and in Miami on November 15, 2008. In each case, a Certified Financial Planner will work with you one-on one at no charge and with no further obligation. (They even promise not to try to sell you anything or contact you after the clinic.) For more information, go to their website at www.cfp.net.
Another place where you can often get free advice from a Certified Financial Planner is at your local library. I visited our library this past weekend to catch up on my PF magazine reading. I found a brochure for an upcoming free retirement planning clinic offered by two local CFP planners. These are not individual sessions but it’s still a convenient way to get solid information without charge and to assess whether you would benefit from follow-up individual sessions. Mr. ToughMoneyLove recommends that you ask your local library or adult education office to notify you of any upcoming free educational sessions like this.
