It’s normal to feel vulnerable when hiring an investment advisor. You may get a nagging feeling you’re not getting good advice. This pain is easy to avoid; hire someone who acts like a cover band and borrows heavily from the masters.
To explore this suggestion I trudged out to see my buddy Clarkey’s band, The Section 8’s. Frankly, I’m surprised that Clarkey has a band at all since he was one of the principal disruptors of Mr. Binney’s seventh grade music class. But I give Clarkey credit since the last time I sang karaoke the audience was actually throwing wet cocktail napkins at me.
