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.

Isn't that what happens on these (and many other) forums and message boards?
