Re: Financial Planner Advice
If I were you I'd tease out the issue of wanting good advice and your relationship with your brother.
If you feel the obligation to help him out financially by giving him business, consider just righting him a check outright as a gift, asking for advice "pro-bono", and then technically managing your own assets.
You just don't want to be in a position where your personal relationship with your brother can have any bearing on decisions made with your money. God forbid you have some sort of falling out, you don't want to have a business relationship tied up at the same time.
Otherwise, I'd just go to a third party and explaining your logic to your brother so he doesn't feel slighted.
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
