    Anyone have or know of a good, honest FA near Lexington? I have a good guy but the company he works for makes me uncomfortable.

    I get the vibe most are like fat dietitians, only a little harder to vet.
    They parrot advice well, but either they don't do what they say, or their knowledge didn't get them too far.

    It seems to me that if they were really good at investing, they would have invested their own money and made millions and be on a beach somewhere instead of getting paid for messing with us.

    Investing is a marathon....not a sprint. If you are looking for quick money sign up for an on-line account - and good luck.

    But if you are looking for a comfortable retirement, my advice is to find someone with a good firm that you like....and stay with them.

    I've been with my guy - who is now at Wells Fargo - for almost 40 years. He has gotten me into good investments - and he has kept me from making bad choices. We've been a good team down through the years. His advice isn't cheap but it has been worth every penny.

    We have one ( now retired) in my neighborhood who's office was in Nashville. He built a nice lake home using a credit card for payment. This was before the cash back and zero interest rate cards came along.

    This is the way I've always looked at it. You can manage you own investments by doing a little research, especially if you simply use mutual funds, or similar. As someone said, it's a marathon, not a sprint. Invest in stock market for the long haul. Start as early as you can, and ignore the fluctuations. The power of compounding interest !! Time is your friend.
