Now is a great time for a free financial check up.
The other day, I was talking with a client (let's call her Beth) and the subject of the troubled economy came up.

Micro vs Macro
You have aligned yourself with various micro-managers to assist you with your financial decision making. These micro-managers are specialists in their particular area of expertise; however, without a macro-manager, you are left with the complex responsibility of tying all of your financial decisions together.
This presents many problems because you neither have the time nor the expertise in each area to evaluate the performance of your micro-managers. With a Macro-Manager on your team, your micro-managers are able to provide their services for you in a better and more efficient way.
