Finding the right Financial Advisor is one of those things that most people know they have to do but rightfully dread the process. It is similar in nature to finding the right pediatrician/family doctor. Anyone who has had to go through a couple of not so good doctors in order to find the right one for your family knows that is not a lot of fun.
