I had my quarterly meeting with my financial guy this week. I work with a guy named Brian Vowinkel at Lydian (great guys if you a looking for someone to provide financial mgmt services in a way that their interests are aligned with their clients). It reminded me of how strongly I believe in the idea of aligning financial interests. This often doesn't happen whether you are talking about financial advisors, client-consultant relations or business partnerships. I've found that long-term satisfaction with any of these relationships eventually breaks down without the aligned interests. It's something to both look in the mirror and look at whether your "partner" is in with the same spirit.
