About two years ago, Ray Sclafani, founder of ClientWise, shared some of his favorite apps for iPads that apply to successful and busy financial advisors.
This post has proven to be one of our more popular entries, which is no surprise given that much of our audience are high-performing financial advisors who are continually looking to improve themselves.
