The Financial Physician

I’ve met with thousands of clients and witnessed the pain and suffering ignorance inflicts. As the host of The Financial Physician, I’ve answered questions for thousands of callers and discussed their concerns. In the process, I’ve developed a unique approach. When I first tried to advise people, many didn’t understand or resisted my suggestions. So I decided to try a different technique. I became the Financial Physician and began explaining finance by using analogies to physical health. Suddenly, they understood. I emphasized that physical and financial fitness are both crucial and that their financial wellbeing is second only to their physical health. Medical analogies have enabled me to get through in ways that people could quickly understand and accept. I help people became eager, cooperative and increase their role in charting their own financial lives.
