Personal Finance in the Time of COVID: Your Advisor is Your Best Untapped Resource

The irony of COVID happening in the year 2020 has not been lost on me. If we could ever hope to benefit from hindsight, that time is certainly now.

I have been a financial advisor for more than 20 years, and I know there are positives even during tough times like these.
