- Ashal Jauhari is awesome. He offers such guidance on a daily basis (but not many come forward to share details like Jenna did). Who is Ashal Jauhari you ask? My comrade, my brother, my mentor and my support. Read his interview here: Interview with Ashal Jauhari: Relentless Financial Awareness Activist
Ashal could have sided with the financial services community and earned fame and fortune. Instead, he stood by my side in AIFW in support of fee-only financial planners and the creations of fee-only India. That made a huge difference! From being active on the moneycontrol forum, he moved on to the Jagoinvestor forum (where I first interacted with him). When he stopped answering questions there, the forum was closed! Now he has recently diversified (his words) into quora too. If you are not on Facebook, get an account only for being part of Asan Ideas of Wealth.
