Build Wealth Canada Podcast

Today I’m excited to have financial planning expert Carl Richards on the show. Carl has been in the financial planning industry for over 20 years, has a column in the New York Times, the Morningstar Advisor, and he’s even been featured on Forbes.com and Oprah.com.

I thought it would be nice to pick his brain a little bit and pick-up some of that knowledge that he’s gathered over the years. In the interview, Carl shares much of his 20 years of experience, and takes us through the  financial planning process that he does with his private clients.
