“I get it that financial planning might seem dull and unexciting to some. And I am not saying that you need to care about my own financial planning practice. But you should care about your own financial planning.
Part of the issue is that a lot of people don’t really know what a financial planner does. It seems like when I say, “financial planner”, some people will hear “mutual fund salesperson” and they assume the extent of my job is trying to pick better mutual funds for people to invest in.”
