About MeHi, I'm Richard Archer. Growing up, I experienced the financial stress and anxiety that divorce and unexpected unemployment can bring. My family's financial instability came while I was attending junior high school in a wealthy Indiana suburb, surrounded by kids with gold cards, the latest fashions, and spring break trips to faraway places. This created a strong desire in me for financial security and led me to work very hard in school, taking advantage of every opportunity.
Everyone has a different relationship with money. Some of my creative clients don't like to think about it and would rather spend their energy pursuing their art. Other clients save aggressively so they have the freedom to retire early. I feel privileged to get to speak confidentially with all types of people and learn about a private topic most people don't often share. It's my calling to help people have a positive relationship with their money and to view it as a tool to help them lead the lives they desire.

We Want Your Voice to be Heard
Wealthtender exists to help people discover the most trusted and authentic professionals and educators in the finance community.
Your honest reviews of the providers featured in our directories help people decide which providers may be best suited to their individual needs.
The majority of people trust reviews as much as personal recommendations, so what you write in your review should reflect your own opinion and experience with the provider.
Tips for Writing a Helpful Review
Be descriptive. Instead of just saying that you like or dislike a provider, share why. What have you enjoyed most or least about your experience with the provider? Have they helped you overcome a difficult financial challenge or strengthened your knowledge about particular money matters? The more details, the better!
Be honest. Your rating and review should reflect your real experience with the provider.
Stay relevant. Help ensure your review is useful to others by avoiding off-topic discussions or personal opinions not relevant to your direct experience with the provider.
Be objective. Try to highlight both positives and negatives in your review, even if your experience skews heavily in one direction.
Make your review easy to read. Reviews should be readable for others. Use proper grammar, avoid excessive capitalization or punctuation, and be sure to check your spelling.
Be yourself. Don’t post as, or pretend to be, someone else, and do not say you’re associated with a person or organization with which you are not.
Be nice. Don’t write abusive, hateful, threatening, or harrassing content. Avoid personal threats, hate speech, obscentities, or inflammatory language.
Respect the privacy of others. Don’t post information that can be used to identity another individual or compromise their privacy.
