Integral Financial Planning
Richard B. Wagner, JD, CFP® has been a thought leader in the financial planning world for twenty-five years. He is currently an editor for InsideMoney.org and Inside FP.org, online journals addressing our personal and collective relationships with money, particularly the roles of the financial planning profession and individual financial advisors. With over eighteen years since its publication, his article ToThink…Like a CFP continues to serve as a seminal statement of vision and potential for the financial planning profession.

In addition to his work with InsideMoney.org, he continues as a regular columnist for Financial Advisor Magazine as well as writing for other publications addressing various aspects of money and the money forces.
