Two readers are on this week's episode, a dentist and an attending physician. Both are in the process of taking control of their money and moving on from their financial advisors. I have no problem whatsoever with using an advisor, so long as the advisor charges a fair price for good advice. If the advisor charges too much, or gives bad advice (or both as is often the case), you should fire them. You can then either hire a good advisor, or become your own financial advisor. In this episode we discuss how to break up with your advisor and move on.
