I do not have the best business sense. Honestly, I just want to show up here and write or turn on the microphone and talk. I’d prefer it if someone else handled all the business details. I know my strengths and that is not one of them.
But that applies for the family too. I hate balancing checkbooks and trying to figure out retirement plans, getting out of debt, etc.
Last year, Christy and I were thinking of going the route of that certain awesome radio host/financial advisor. But we just weren’t sure. As luck would have it, I struck up a friendship with Chris Burns, who is the brains behind Dynamic Money.
Today and through December 31st, if you tune into my radio show, you’re going to hear Chris Burns instead of me. He’ll be filling in and bringing his wit and wisdom about personal finance and life to my show. He actually got his start as a youth pastor and now is not just my financial advisor, but a friend too.
I tend to worry about finances and don’t have the depth or background to figure it all out. I’m skeptical of a lot of financial advisors because they are commissions based and I never know if they’re recommending something because they believe it will help or because of their commission. That’s why I appreciate Chris and Dynamic Money.
Chris is fee based and takes no commissions. He’s helped Christy and me restructure some debts, refinance our house, and pay off credit cards and a car. He’s brought us some serious peace of mind. He’s essentially a primary care physician for your finances. He’s got our insurance guy talking with our mortgage guy talking with our lawyer, etc. He checks our 401(K) and makes sure we’re balanced properly based on age and comfort with risk.
If you need someone like that, check out Dynamic Money. The company has become a sponsor of my radio show and I’m delighted to have Chris filling in for me this week.
I’ll be in on Tuesday for Christmas Eve and then on Christmas we’ll re-air my gospel presentation from Tuesday. But every other day will be Chris filling in. Thanks for listening and thanks Chris for helping me be able to take a vacation.
