Hi I am Tony Steuer...
author, podcaster, and financial preparedness advocate. I’m passionate about changing the way we think about money.
It all started, when I was working at my first job.
I realized that most people did not understand what they were buying, had no idea how to monitor it and that their products often had nothing to do with their goals. People lacked healthy money habits. And this was everyone including well educated professionals, rich or poor.
I became dedicated to financial education with a focus on best practices. In other words that we need to help people learn, so they can make informedcan informed choices.
I believe I was put on this planet to help people change the way they think about money.
The words I live by are: You don't want to be the best at what you do, you want to be the only one. Jerry Garcia.
IT IS MY MISSION TO SHARE THE GET READY METHOD ACROSS THE GLOBE
The Get Ready method isn't going to make you cut out your daily latte or reprimand you for any actions you’ve taken up to this point. I believe we start now, from where ever you are and we move forward in a spirit of support and possibility!
I have developed the Get Ready Movement to empower and educate you on topics ranging from personal finance to insurance. The Get Ready Movement also integrates others who are changing the way we think about money including financial advisors, insurance agents, financial coaches.
I believe that we are all responsible for our actions and have a responsibility to be educated.
I also believe that advisors and financial services companies have a duty to act with integrity through best practices. I created The Get Ready! Financial Standards to help financial consumers and members of the financial services industry get on the same page.Learn more about The Get Ready Financial Standards

Your advisor should act in your best interest: (to the best of their ability).
Keep in mind that some advisors are fiduciaries while others are not. Insurance agents are also not fiduciaries and are agents of the Insurance Company. An advisor’s recommendation should not be influenced by commissions, bonuses or other incentives (cash or non-cash). An advisor should not collect a fee and a commission from the same client for the same work.
