    Why Everyone Needs A Financial Planner | #008

    People tend to think Financial Planning is only needed for retired people, people with money, or those with insurance needs.

We also chat through who needs a financial planner...and why. No matter your stage of life, or how much money you have, it's valuable to speak with a professional to look at your current situation, and to find out what you can, can't or should be doing.
