Traditional investment advice—the stock-and-bond, buy-and-hold approach—leaves you entirely too exposed to violent swings in your life savings.

Stop Investing Like They Tell You is a practical guide to overcoming the potentially ruinous flaws in an investment portfolio. After operating under the umbrella of a large brokerage firm for over five years, Stephen Spicer CFP® came to realize that his personal investment strategy was incongruent with what he was supposed to, or even allowed to, recommend and grew increasingly uncomfortable with the prescribed advice.

As a Certified Financial Planner™, I've had to immerse myself in the mainstream dogma... I've worked in and studied the industry for more than a decade now...

But I'm so glad I did. My investments are better for it. My clients' lives are better for it.
So, I just wanted to take a moment to share with you how appreciative I am for your support and vision. I hope you do get and read the book. I sincerely believe it will change your financial life for the better.
