Bloomfield Hills Financial and Investment Advisor Publishes Investing Book for Individuals

For Immediate Release




Bloomfield Hills, MI – Robert Schmansky, CFP®, founder of Clear Financial Advisors located in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, recently published his first book Clear Investing, Intentional Investing.


The basis for the book is to provide a high level overview of investing for individuals, and how the novice and experienced investor can increase their odds of having a successful investment experience.


“The most common cause of investment failure is that individuals simply do not have a philosophy on investing, and they do not have a way to apply that philosophy to their own personal financial plan,” said Schmansky. “My goal for this book was to provide information for the amateur investor to begin to understand the philosophy I’ve come to professionally, but it is also helpful for the experienced investor who may struggle with understanding how their investment plan fits into their personal life goals.”  


Clear Investing, Intentional Investing is split into two sections. Clear Investing covers the basics, including the reasons we invest, where we receive returns, and how to take intelligent risks. Intentional Investing provides more background on common financial strategies and issues that people experience when implementing an investment plan.
