"This book is a must–read for financial advisors who understand that putting the clients′ interests first is also good business. From the Boiler Room to the Living Room will help to change the financial services industry to the financial planning profession."

"The future belongs to the fee–based, right–brained advisor who brings wisdom and knowledge into holistic conversations with clients who are wrestling with major anticipated or unanticipated life transitions. Mitch deftly describes the essence of planning beyond money. What clients value and what they prefer are meaningful discussions surrounding purpose–driven net worth, i.e., solutions that support, sustain, and nourish their three most important assetsâ??their mind, their body, and their soul."
