After being in this business for 8 years one thing I have learned is that everyone, even your close trusted friends, knows a guy that has the magic bullet to fix all your issues.
While these people are just trying to help the bottom line is you need to learn the lessons and educate yourself on things work.
Why do you think most lottery winners blow all their cash and end up way worse off?
Its because they have no clue how to deal with wealth.
The road to learning yourself is hard but extremely rewarding if you stick it out.
