    Empowering, insightful and actionable! 🙌
    Whether you’re well established in the financial services industry, or just getting started as an advisor - this is a must-listen podcast for you! Michael does an incredible job leading conversations that cover a huge breadth of topics related to the ins and outs of building a thriving practice, and life you can be proud of - from leaders who’ve actually experienced success themselves. Highly recommend listening and subscribing!

    Fantastic Resource
    Michael Kitces provides a wealth of knowledge for financial advisors, and is a great interviewer. He brings on great guests. Also, he listens (no talking over guests, which is a major pet peeve) and asks probing and thoughtful questions. Keep it up!
  • dmbizzle
    Interesting guest, if the host would let them speak.
    As the title says, the guest are usually quite interesting and they often have good insight to share. Unfortunately, as a ratio, the host speaks way too much. Its almost as if he wants to let us know how smart he thinks he is. Granted, he is smart but he ought to pullback and let the guest shine. They are why we listen.

    A living saint!
    Should Michael ever pass from this world, I will personally spearhead his case for canonization! The quality of his work, and the quality of the guests on his show is so helpful and inspiring. I love this show and I try to catch as many episodes as I can because they are all so insightful. Thanks, Michael and keep up the good work!

    Invaluable Resource for Advisors
    This is hands down the best podcast for financial planners I have had the privilege to listen to. Micheal asks great questions and the people interviewed offer fantastic perspectives and insight. Micheal has interviewed some of greatest minds in financial planning community and it provides so much value as a fellow financial planner. I have listened to some episodes multiple times and it provides a great deal of energy, affirmation and direction in how I approach my personal and professional life. I can’t thank Michael and his guests enough for this extraordinary information made available to everyone. Thank you for all you do to advance the financial planning profession!
  • Sacto Greek
    Love his content normally…
    I love what Kitces brings to the industry, and my financial practice is certainly better due to his contributions through this podcast. The last three guests spent a fair amount of time patting themselves on the back for the work that they do… I sit on a board where we teach financial literacy and workforce readiness. If I’m asked about it, I point to the work of the board and the people that work around me. Which is the opposite of what the last few gas have done. It made it difficult to listen to. I will continue to listen because these or otherwise great podcasts...

    Valuable insight for financial planners
    Michael Kitces does an amazing job at interviewing a wide-range of professionals within the financial planning & advisory space. What I really love about it all, is that he steers the conversation in a way that highlights takeaways that us planners/advisors (new or old) can take into practice.

    I’m very grateful for this podcast
    Michael Kitces podcasts are wonderful because he gets great guests and he asks wonderful questions. My challenge is I take too many notes because I’m learning so much.

    Episode 63
    This was a phenomenal addition. He without sin may cast the first stone. In this industry all of your laundry is required to hung out for all to see, good, bad, or indifferent. A wonderful story of perseverance and turning bad act into an impactful life and business.
  • Love words 1962
    Very useful information
    Michael's interview with Ron Carson was enjoyed and informative to listen to. As a fee-only registered investment advisor and financial planner, I am seeking more insights on how to grow my business, increase revenues, and enhance my client services and client satisfaction. This podcast has given me several excellent ideas, particularly relating to working with my staff.
  • Rob Gozo
    One incredible advisor
    I've been listening, reading, and now watching Michael for several years now. No one has their finger on the pulse of financial planning research and new opportunities than him. I can't believe he's one dude. It's personally inspiring to see a self-made financial advisor in a world of big companies and high regulation. He is a fixture at high level planning conferences and seminars. He partners on research papers with PhDs in academics. And he's offering an avenue to the business that no one else is even considering. All the best to him and his family, partners and clients. Thank you very much.
  • Djjoeyp22

    Great stuff!
    Michael always brings on great guests and they have very open conversations. It's helpful as a financial planner and appreciate the value they provide in each episode.
  • BradJohnson25
    Like getting a PHD in financial services
    How Michael cranks out this much content while keeping it at such a high standard is incredible. Pioneer when it comes to social media and building a platform in financial services, so lots to offer (and that's before you get to his incredible guest list). Make sure to check out the episode with Ron Carson, one of my favorites. - Brad Johnson host of The Elite Advisor Blueprint Podcast
  • trotro748
    This podcast is great regardless of your skill level. Michael brings on great guests that talk about valuable and interesting information.
  • Menolikehardgames
    Must listen for any FA
    These podcasts are great and a must for any Financial Advisor. Host does a great job of going in depth in a world where "behind the scenes" information is hard to find. I'm a new FA and I've learned more from these podcasts than I do at my firm. Great guests who are experienced in the business and great topics that are relevant for everyone. When I first started listening, I would cherry pick episodes based on what I wanted to learn about, but I soon realized that all the episodes offer an educational opportunity. Highly recommend for anyone interested in the financial industry.
  • ToTheTop1
    Very informative

  • LoPea17
    My favorite series
    If you are sincere about your advisory practice or learning about how to choose an advisor, this should be your first series.
  • Kvennenyc
    Must Listen for All Advisors
    If you are an financial advisor serious about your career you must make time for this podcast. As far as I can tell, nobody in our industry is more knowledgable than Michael. If someone happens to have a better grasp on the topics we deal with, they aren't nearly as good at sharing as he is.
  • Mark T. Meredith
    Very good
    Every financial advisor should be listening to this podcast.
  • Ray Sclafani

Great job, Michael Kitces! I greatly appreciate your contribution here and the contributions of those with whom you've interviewed and will interview.

    Started listening to these Podcasts recently and can't turn them off! I have listened to episodes 16, 15 and 14 and am learning so much! Michael - thank you for your investment of time and thanks to our fellow practioners for their insights. Inspirational as well as educational!
  • Wishing for pink hair
    My new favorite podcast
    I look forward to each new episode and am amazed that something resonates with me in each and every episode. The selection of guests is top-notch and the advice and information is priceless. This podcast has definitely inspired and helped me in my practice. A couple recommendations: stop referencing the show notes over and over throughout the episode and just mention it once at the beginning. Get a new, shorter intro with a different voice. Other than that - keep up all of the amazing work you are doing to bless others.
  • Bobby Adams, CFP
