Welcome to "Your Money"

Welcome to “Your Money”, our new BLOG with the Oakland Press!  We thought a brief overview would be appropriate.  We are a father/daughter team of Certified Financial Planner® licensees, doing business as Patterson Advisors LLC. Our clients reside primarily in Oakland County, Michigan but also in several other states.  More information about our firm can be found on our website:


We previously wrote a column titled “Your Money” for about a year in an Oakland Press weekend supplement titled “The Oakland Insider”, which was distributed to Waterford and Clarkston residents.


We plan to provide interesting thoughts, news, and recommendations covering a wide range of personal finance topics. Included will be general financial do’s and don’ts, advice on insurance, investments, budgeting, retirement planning, investing, estate planning and taxes.


We consider ourselves to be quite conservative, so if you’re looking for a silver bullet to recover quickly from recent market losses, you won’t find that kind of advice here.  We will focus on the same kind of advice we think is best for our clients.


We’ll start off tomorrow talking about the current financial crisis and why many people have faired much worse than others.  We’ll then provide our thoughts on what individuals should do going forward to better protect themselves from future crises and how best to recover from recent losses.


We hope you’ll enjoy our commentary and look forward to your comments.
