There are financial aspects like saving money, living frugally, saving for retirement or investing a certain portion of your pay check that I, as a financial blogger, can advice. I can write about importance of having insurance or how can you go about earning money on the side. But, there are specific scenarios where we can’t help you. We are not supposed to provide such personalized financial help to anyone. Financial advisors or planners are there for you when you need to consult your finances with someone well qualified.
There are also tons of financial advisors, with an alphabet soup of letters behind their names, ready to give you guidance for a fee. Not all advisors are created equal, however, and the fact that someone is certified does not necessarily mean that they are the right advisor for you. The same way there are good guys and excellent guys at your work, financial advisors also come with various skill levels and qualifications. Before you pick a financial advisor, you should know what there qualification mean.
