Since I started writing this column four years ago, I’ve been assigned to deal with the journey of a younger financial planner. While most of my columns have focused on this topic, sometimes I have discussed subjects that are often avoided.

This column is going to focus on the matter of depression for an RIA owner. I will tell my own story. It should be noted that I have no medical background, so if readers find that they are in a similar situation, they should consult a doctor or counselor. My hope is that some owners who are feeling emotions similar to these will be able to take action and improve their situation.
