Confessions of a Financial Writer
Thoughts from writing consultant, Clint Willis:
I started writing about investing in 1981, as a 24-year-old reporter for Money magazine—the only mainstream publication focused on personal finance in those days. Since then I’ve written or edited millions of words of financial and other writing for books, magazines, websites, newsletters…name it.
These days, I’m an owner of The Writing Company, in Portland, Maine; we create editorial content for advisors, financial service firms and media companies. My colleague, Sean Donahue, and I are working with Matt Hall on a book about his career as an evidence-based investor. I think the book is going to change lives. It’s already changed the way I invest.
