It is my intention, though, to not let this be a purely one-sided discussion. Please share your comments on my posts. Feel free to write me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Tell me about your challenges and your successes, what you’re seeing and hearing and reading, and what you’re experiencing.
I’m going to share with you whatever insights I can on financial planning issues; I hope you’ll consider responding in kind.
