You see I grew up in a family that never saved or invested. Fortunately I have worked in the financial services industry all of my life. I have worked in retail banking, insurance, tax preparation and as a financial planner. I have expertise in selling mutual funds, annuities and insurance products. I have also worked for some of the biggest banks on Wall Street and have learned first hand how the financial services industry promotes products that might not be in your best interest. From these experiences I have learned how almost anyone can learn to use a few very simple methods to build financial security.
