About the book

“This book is mandatory reading for anyone who wants a better understanding of how to manage their money.”—Mary Beth Franklin, InvestmentNews 


“Accessible and practical, this guide contains valuable tools for managing one’s personal finances for maximum results.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review 


It seems like a foolproof decision: if you want to be smart about protecting and growing your wealth, you should seek guidance from a trained financial advisor. 


As CEO of the country’s largest provider of workplace financial wellness programs, Liz Davidson has seen firsthand how that seemingly smart decision can go awry for many people. Why? Because you can never blindly trust that your advisor has your best interests at heart. There are many benefits to working with a financial pro, but there are some things you should know first. 


That’s where this book comes in. Drawing on her insider’s knowledge of how the financial advice profession really works, Davidson reveals how to judge whether an advisor is going to help or harm your savings. How should you decide if you really need an advisor? What financial moves can you make without their help? What important questions should you ask before trusting them with your money? What are the red flags you should run from? And what does all their jargon really mean? 


This friendly, no-nonsense guide is a must-read if you want to finally take control of your financial well-being, either with a financial advisor or without one.
