Boss Man Jax here letting you know I just discovered Allan Roth. He is a Financial Planner and the founder of the planning firm Wealth Logic in Colorado Springs, Colorado. He also writes for The Wall Street Journal and AARP The Magazine. Roth has taught investing at three universities.
Allan says to his clients he is charging them $450 an hour to tell them he doesn’t know the future (read 10 Tactless Things I Tell Clients). That’s a lot of dog bones that come with the steak still attached! And, likely some good financial advice from a seasoned investing professional.
Here are a few articles I read this morning written by Allen Roth that you might find useful in your quest for financial independence:

In addition to the great financial reads above, don’t forget basic financial education is important to your success and learning a little more every week pays dividends; do your homework. Look for high quality companies with great management teams that are selling at a discount. Boss Man Jax keeps it simple and says,
Buy low and sell high! – Boss Man Jax
Re-balancing your investments on a regular basis helps you do just that, but first you need a financial plan that sets goals for your asset allocation. More on that coming soon.
