50 Ways to Leave Your Advisor
A reader recently mentioned how hard her advisor pushed back when she told him she was switching to an online discount broker. She made the move but found it very stressful!
"Just slip out the back, Jack, make a new plan, Stan Don't need to be coy, Roy, just listen to me Hop on the bus, Gus, don't need to discuss much Just drop off the key, Lee, and get yourself free" Paul Simon
Have you left your advisor or are you considering doing so? If so, would you kindly share your story? My aim is to summarize and anonymously share your stories in an upcoming newsletter. I believe learning about your experience could be an enormous help to fellow subscribers.
