Video is a medium that I haven’t really considered with this blog, but I can see how it can be useful when educating about certain concepts. Let me know what you think about introducing more video to MDJ.
“Financial Quackery” is one of the main reasons why most people struggle financially. This video is my attempt at humour (I have to point this out in case you don’t recognize the humour) to explain what to look for to get real advice, rather than the typical industry foolishness pretending to be advice.
If you find finance confusing, this video explains in “plane language” how to avoid ruining your retirement plan, and why, for the same reason that you have one family doctor instead of 3, having one advisor that knows your entire plan is how you “get to California”.
I have written many articles, but the most favourable reviews were on the article about “Financial Quackery”. This issue speaks directly to the difficulties most people have with the financial industry. Even people not interested in finance should understand this. I hope you find it funny.
The video is a bit small on this page, so hit the “full screen” button on the bottom right.
