Famous Chefs and Financial Advice

Whether you are a fan of Paula Deen, Bobby Flay, Emeril Lagasse or another top chef, consider this for a moment: Why have they chosen to openly share their hard-won trade secrets with millions of people? Rather than simply open a restaurant and make their famed dishes night after night for their fans to consume, they have opened up their cookbooks so that others can do what they do. Think about that.

I don’t claim to be Emeril, but I take very seriously the responsibility to educate clients about the choices available to them in the world of financial services and products. In fact, my biggest fear is that one of my clients might be asked why he owns a particular financial product and responds, “Because my guy sold it to me.” Unacceptable.
