As a financial planner, I like to explain complex investment and financial planning strategies to my clients in a way that makes sense to them. I find that by using interesting visuals and graphics, they gain a better understanding of these concepts. As founder and president of Glassman Wealth Services, a Northern Virginia financial advisory firm, I lead a team of smart, experienced financial advisors and professionals who provide investment, financial planning and wealth management services for high net-worth clients. Together, we offer successful professionals, executives and business owners guidance and resources to effectively manage their families' wealth. I write for several publications including Forbes, Investment News and contribute financial commentary about personal finance, financial planning, the financial markets and economy to The Washington Post, Business Week, Kiplinger's Personal Finance, CNBC, Dow Jones Newswire, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today and Bloomberg. Glassman Wealth Services, LLC is an award-wining, fee-only investment, financial planning and wealth management firm located in McLean, VA. We manage over $550 million in assets and serve clients in Northern Virginia, Maryland, Washington, DC and in 22 states. Follow me on Twitter: BarryGlassman, or Circle me on Google+.
