I am a strong believer of managing one’s own money and finances.
The simple reason is that it’s your money at stake, and your financial future that’s being planned.
Nobody cares more about your money than you do. So if you are not motivated to improve your financial situation, nobody else is going to do so either…not even the best financial planner around.
I manage my own finances and see no reason why anyone else can’t do that on his or her own.
