Darryl Brown wants you to stop complaining about bad financial advice and do something about it. If you walk into a bank, give them money, don’t ask questions and do zero research on investing, then you’ve pretty much given up your right to complain if you’re not happy with the results. Instead of complaining about things, let’s be proactive. This is your money. It’s important. You work hard for it. So why not spend a bit of time on it. Yes, I’ve said this a...
