Jason Hull, financial planner extraordinaire, joins Joe in the basement to answer the question: Why don't people like to meet with financial advisors? How do you know when you're meeting with a good advisor? How can you smell out a bad one?
Jason tells us about his new course, Winning With Money, which allows you to finish your entire financial plan, know it's a quality plan, and never meet with a planner. AND I found out after we recorded the interview that he would give our listeners $50 off the price of the course.
