I began financial services work with a firm that was devoted to the financial planning process before financial planning as a profession even existed—we learned everything about the process of financial counseling with fantastic teachers and a great learning environment. We learned about investing, insurance, budgeting, pensions and more, and, of course, all our planning work and projections had to be done by hand—I even calculated my first pension plan, a defined-benefit plan in New York City, with paper and pencil.”
