The Investor's Advocate: Rebel Yell!


A Nonconformists' Manifesto for All Like-Minded Investors

Is there a rebellious spirit lurking beneath your finely tailored corporate wardrobe, begging to be set free? If so, then you should definitely read an article specifically designed for all buttoned down rebels, called "Formal Nonconformity" ( This inspiring post is written by Anthony Rhodes, the owner of wealth management firm The Planning Perspective (, on his popular How To Invest blog (

"Looking back, I suppose I've always tended to dance to the beat of my own drum." he began. "This makeup made it a bit challenging when starting out on Wall Street, since I was the type to often ask "Why?" when others simply went along with what they were told to do." he explained. "It didn't take long for me to realize that the structure itself wasn't designed for nonconformity, but was actually dependent upon uniformed obeisance." he added.

"Nonconformity for the sake of nonconformity is counterproductive, but within those areas in which it is necessary, it's not only a liberating experience, but is actually a requirement." he concluded.
