I know it seems like this is going to be a very long post, but this is my first one about financial advisors and the role they play in helping people save.

I’m going to do my best to explain why Wall Street is so profitable, why it’s so important to the economy, and how to do more to help it thrive.

I know some people may have an opinion about financial advisor salaries, but I can assure you I’m not going to sugarcoat this for you.

This post is going in depth, and is about how the Wall Street investment world works.

I’m going in the direction of trying to be very concise and direct here, so if you have any questions about what I’m writing or the world of financial advisor work, feel free to ask away in the comments section below.

I also have a Twitter feed and a Facebook page for anyone interested.
