I am a sports authority (and a member of the U.S.A.A.A.) and I am proud to be named in their Financial Advisors of the Year. I am also a member of the U.S.A.A.A. where I am a certified financial planner, and a certified life strategist. I am also a member of the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors where I am the editor-in-chief.
I’m a member of the U.S.A.A.A. where I am a financial adviser, member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, and a certified life strategist. I’m also a member of the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors where I am the editor-in-chief and an associate editor.
A financial adviser is someone who is an expert on a specific area of finance, including investment, insurance, and estate planning. A life strategist is someone who advises people on the best way to live. In other words, we are all financial planners and life strategists. If we are not, we are not doing our jobs properly.
I don’t know about you, but I’m a huge fan of the phrase “financial planner”. We all are, right? Well, financial planners are supposed to be the experts in the field, but many of us don’t have the time or expertise to be a financial planner. Which is why we need to become life strategists.
I’ve been a financial planner since I was in college and I can honestly say that I am the best financial planner I ever was. I have a huge portfolio of books on finance and wealth management, and I have a lot of different financial advisers I can refer to for advice, but I do think that a more important skill is finding a good personal finance advisor.
If you want to be an expert in a particular field and want to make money, you need to know your subject well. You need to know how to think about it and how to apply it to a specific situation. Finance is not a field where you can just decide to become a “financial advisor” and jump in with both feet. You have to find your own niche and you have to do your own research.
I think it’s great that finance is a field where you can choose to become an expert in finance or not, because there’s a difference between knowing what an adviser can teach you and having the knowledge to actually apply it to your own personal finance decisions. In fact, the best way to know when you’re good at something is to know when you can do it without any knowledge.
This is the same principle as when we use a word like “passionate” or “intense.” We say a person has passion for something when they can make that something more important to them than their own personal gain. Similarly, I think an expert in sports finance would be able to apply this principle to his own sports decisions. Like, a person who enjoys watching basketball doesn’t need to be a professional basketball player to be a better basketball player.
But I like to think there are some of us who have passion for basketball, and that passion can be used to increase our own basketball skills. Like, an avid soccer fan could find himself increasing his soccer skills by watching soccer matches, watching the games, and improving his soccer knowledge. The same is true for any other passion, not just sports. We don’t have to be a basketball player to be a better basketball player or an expert in tennis.
So who is the better basketball player? Well we don’t have to choose in this game. We can choose to be a better basketball player. We can choose to be a better soccer player or we can choose to be an expert in other sports. But when we do choose, we should be able to use this knowledge of sports to improve our own abilities.
