I Blog Therefore I Advise

I’ve talked about the fact that blogging essentially made me ten times the financial advisor I once was (see: How Do You Have So Much Time to Blog).

Back in my brokerage days, I was blindfolded and locked in an intellectual cage, fed only the “insights” from the firm’s analysts in a wooden slop bowl that was shoved under the door each morning.  With the blog, I am forced to be up to date on a whole world’s worth of insights and I write in such a way that I am constantly discovering what I actually think in real time.

My industry’s trade magazine, Investment News, has a big feature on how my colleagues are using social media to improve their practices, I was fortunate to be included.  Below a link to my Q&A and then the whole feature…


For this adviser, the blog’s the thing (Investment News)
