Motley Fool Endorsement of Garrett Planning Network

Dear Clients and Friends,


I’m writing to let you know about an exciting new development in my business. The Motley Fool has exclusively endorsed and is promoting the services of financial advisors affiliated with the Garrett Planning Network, the international organization of fee-only financial advisors with which I am proud to be associated. 


The Motley Fool has long admired Garrett’s approach to fee-only financial advice. And we are fans of The Fool’s approach to everything they do to educate, empower and amuse the public and their members about investing. Garrett, The Motley Fool and I share a commitment to make trustworthy financial advice accessible to everyone. 


The Motley Fool is one of the most admired financial brands in the world. Each month, 4 million unique visitors visit its website at At the core of The Fool’s business model are hundreds of thousands of premium members—many enjoying subscriptions to multiple investment newsletters. Clearly, the company is fulfilling its quest to broaden access to winning financial advice, and I am delighted to have access to all of these resources through our partnership with The Motley Fool. (If you’re not familiar with The Motley Fool, please find some additional information below.) 


While there’s no doubt that The Motley Fool’s advisory services are answering a great need among individual investors, the company came to recognize that many of its members yearn for more hands-on help managing life’s complex financial decisions—especially in light of the recent rollercoaster stock market. The Fool decided it was time to look at expanding into the direct financial advice category.


Rather than building a financial advisor network from scratch, The Fool kicked off a search for a well-established, like-minded outfit with similar values with which to partner. I am delighted that they found a new match in an old friend—the Garrett Planning Network! As we know well, when it comes to financial planning, Garrett advisors offer the same kind of trustworthy, transparent, and community-driven advice that The Fool has built its business on. The Garrett-Motley Fool relationship has the makings of a great partnership.


Thanks for reading, and thanks for your support. Please don’t hesitate to contact me with your questions.
