Educating the Client: Getting on the Internet

My first client, Mark Pensgen, has been working with me closely to help define the kind of questions he’s curious about. He’s an ideal test case: he’s starting a new financial planning service in his community, wants to get on the Internet with a very simple presence, and has a lot of questions.
