Every advisor will have his or her own approach to investing, financial planning, and other services. Clients are encouraged to approach a search for an advisor the way they would a search for a doctor—interviewing multiple professionals and getting opinions from multiple third parties.

Without a doubt, any nice day on the lake is a good day. I also like hiking, running, and lifting weights.
