On today’s podcast, we’re talking with J.B. Morris, founder of Concierge Wealth Management based in Boston. His goal is to help high earners in their early 30s to mid 40s make the most of their financial lives.
J.B. first started working in financial services during an internship with Smith Barney during the summer of 2000. That summer internship stoked his passion for financial services and prompted his further study of financial planning at The University of Wisconsin – Madison.
J.B. is passionate about educating the public – as well as those who present themselves as financial advisors – about the enormous differences between investment advice and integrated financial planning. He believes that communication is the cornerstone of a good relationship, and that planning is the most important step toward a solid financial future.

- Why he became a financial advisor

- His thoughts on entrepreneurship
- How he achieves a work-life balance
