About Across the Board

Across the Board is a series of brief, informative videos that teach essential wealth concepts and tips using plain language and concrete examples. In a financial industry that so often communicates in jargon and abstraction, Across the Board seeks to send the message that no idea is so difficult or complex that it can’t be boiled down to a tangible example, a clear metaphor, or a simple story.
