Do you enjoy shopping online?  It can be timesaving, cost-effective, and fun. However there are some pitfalls to avoid.  This month Commonwealth Financial Network brings us some useful suggestions for what to be wary of when using computer-shopping alternatives.

I was fortunate enough to be invited, among the top 75 independent financial advisors in the U.S., to the 2013 Barron's Winners Circle Top Independent Advisors Summit in Orlando in March. This conference is always extremely informative, and gives me an inroad to the latest thinking in the financial services industry.
