Working with a Financial Planner

Financial Planning is as much a "science" (what to do) as it is an "art" (how to do).  Clearly, any knowledgable individual can develop financial plan (the science); however, not many untrained people can successfully navigate the financial landscape (the art) to maintain the plan the way a financial planner is prepared to do.  I will provide some tips for you on how to choose a financial planner to work with, because the "do-it-yourself" approach can possibly hurt you.
