About FPPad

I founded FPPad in 2008 with the objective of being a leading source of news, insight, and thought leadership on financial planning technology.

Originally started as a blog, FPPad has evolved into a premier consulting and media resource for financial planners and wealth managers. I now have a YouTube channel and an iTunes podcast in addition to the content posted on the blog. For more information on my services, see my Services page.

And what’s the meaning behind FPPad? FP stands for Financial Planning, and I chose Pad as a throwback to the LeapPad Learning System product developed during my tenure at LeapFrog Toys.
