Keep in mind, there is a large segment of our adult population that do not know the difference between an IRA and an ETF, a bond from a REIT or the S&P 500 from the Russel 2000. All they know is that between Social Security and their retirement savings, they want a comfortable and secure retirement income.

Why don't you advise them--for free? Why not? Set up shop somewhere and advise any and all comers...for absolutely no fee whatsoever.

Or don't even set up shop. Merely let as many people as possible know you'll sit down with them and counsel them on the difference between an IRA and an ETF, a bond from a REIT and all the indices.

You'd be performing a valuable service about which you could feel very noble. And that's no joke.
