Called by one reviewer a “must-read,” The Financial Briefing brings lessons learned over thirty years of helping people navigate the complex waters of personal finance. Included are chapters to help you lay a sound foundation for your financial success, tactics and strategies to help you navigate life’s many twists and turns, and critical information to help you plan for your retirement, the education of your children or grandchildren, and provide protection of your family both in life and after you are gone from this world. The Financial Briefing is a treasure trove of tips and sound guidance that is not to be missed.
