Informative and fun

Pat and Scott are hilarious with their personal experiences while getting down to brass tacks with advice to their callers! I have been a client of allworth for 30 years and I listen every week to this very informative, current financial discussion. It’s interesting to hear what other situations are out there. I especially like the segment where Pat and Scott go back to an original caller and ask if and how they followed their advice..
Great Job!

Not the Car Guys

I started listening shortly after Ric Edelman went off the air. Your radio style reminds me of The Car Guys (Tom & Ray) - little known fact, both graduated from M.I.T. I truly appreciate your humor and knowledge of all things financial, and the love of family. You two don’t do enough to promote yourselves - not that you need it, but stop apologizing for plugging your product.

Thank you,
Jonathan

Thoughtful advise that strives to see your whole financial picture

This pair of seasoned true financial advisors are a pleasure to listen to every week because the always bring humor into the process but never loose the fact that they are providing advise that can have profound changes to the listeners life.

Always driven by what is in the listeners best interest while trying see the whole financial picture, this is not an easy thing and it is clear they have been doing financial planning for years because it comes as second nature to the both of them.

Do yourself a favor it you care about your financial future, put this podcast into your weekly rotation and have a blast while getting great advise.
