Overview

Find and work with a financial advisor to achieve your goals, whatever your income or assets.

The Truth Shall Set Your Wallet Free is aimed at debunking the myths that prevent people from achieving their wealth goals. And the first myth that needs to be bashed is that financial advisors are only for the very rich. In fact, there are more financial advisors who cater to modest-income Americans than those who cater to the rich.

Myths propagated by the media, regulators, and even the financial industry itself harm every American, from those at the poverty level to billionaires and everyone in between. This is the first time a holistic view of the entire advice market has been written by a non-advisor industry insider, without bias from any of the financial services sectors.

Nick Stuller's book was so helpful to me. I wasn't sure what to do with some small investments I had made a long time ago. After reading his book I knew how to find the right advisor for my exact needs. I am very happy with how the advisor helped me. His book breaks down what questions to ask and what you should know before you look for an advisor. I highly recommend this book.

Stuller's book is one of the most helpful books on how to navigate the world of financial planning for everyone, not just high net worth individuals. Stuller explains how virtually working person can benefit from the knowledge financial planners bring to the public. Just as we all go to lawyers and accountants for help with out taxes, planning, et cetera, he explains the special role financial planners play in assisting us to maximize our financial futures. Financial Planning is not a one size fits all profession. This important book explains how to find the financial planner who is best suited to your own situation and needs. The information in The Truth Shall Set Your Wallet Free is worth every cent you invest in buying this book.
