My Father is a finacial GENIUS in my opinion. He has the patience to look at stocks as the numbers change, and pay attention to what they are doing. My Father has a financial planner, something I have never understood, as his advice and knowledge seems to be that of an experienced financial planner. What is the lesson here, maybe it is a good idea to get a financial planner.
Wether it is money, love, children, education, or whatever, I believe it best to ask those who know, not those who think they know. What is their experience, have they learned from mistakes, and do the have success in that realm as well. We are here to learn from each other, hopefully the successful way.
