Is a Financial Advisor Worth It?
Is having a financial advisor worth what you pay?

But it primarily depends on you. Do you want one? Or do you just want to save the money and do it yourself?
This question always makes me think of my mechanic. I know some people who are really into vehicles and they love fixing their car, changing their oil, and all that jazz.
But that ain’t me. At all. I’m blessed to have a mechanic I trust (which took a while to find) but now I don’t even hesitate.
Yes, I pay him. But he’s good at it. And I’m not.
