Financial Advisors...NOT ADVICE

We are asked regularly if we have a financial advisor we know or recommend. Unfortunately, in our personal experience we have not found a financial advisor we would personally recommend or trust.   YES, the above certificate is fake and meant to make you laugh. We HIGHLY recommend always doing your homework, make investment decisions you are comfortable with, and more importantly, investments you can afford.  Below is a direct copy and past form the FINRA website, this should be enough to raise questions.
