L. Paul Hood, Jr., one of the nation’s leading educators of legal, accounting, and financial professionals, is joining Advisors4Advisors' distinguished lineup of instructors. 


Prolific and passionate about spreading his explanations and analysis of planning strategies for income and estate tax minimization, financial planning psychology, and strategies targeted to doctors, developers, business owners and modern families,

Paul Hood grew up in a neighborhood near England Air Force Base in Alexandria, Louisiana. As a boy, he experienced the brutality of war through his classmates’ parents in the Viet Nam War via killed in action, missing in action and being a prisoner of war. It profoundly affected him, and he became an estate planner.  


For several decades, Paul has been on a mission to improve the quality of financial planning advice. His classes on A4A are designed strategically to optimize his knowledge, experience and good intentions. 



Courses planned for the next year in the top row of the table are free with A4A membership ($120/year). Membership comes with access to classes taught by a curated group of instructors. Blending instructors to your needs aids strategic practice management.      


Fritz Meyer, Craig Israelsen, and Robert Keebler for over a decade have taught monthly about financial economics, portfolio design, tax, and financial planning. In 2021, financial psychology expert Frank Murtha joined the roster of instructors, along with compliance consultant Cathy Vasilev. In 2022, along with fee-only insurance cosultant, Glenn Daily, Paul Hood is a valuable addition to A4A’s lineup of educators.


Adding a new class monthly by Paul Hood means A4A members pay $10 for five credits monthly, or $2 a credit, for classes taught by  instructors covering the most important topics reqiured to run a practice..


The preview of the topics enables you to plan your education, to choose what you want to learn more about by reserving time on your schedule to take an elective. 


A4A electives are lower priced than multi-class courses offered by other leading vendors but they elevate the quality of CE/CPE.     


Paul’s first class is about 2022 estate and income tax planning strategies practitioners must know about under current conditions. It is the first in a four-class series about the latest strategies practitioners need to know about integrated income and estate planning.     


Paul Hood’s courses on A4A help professionals master a wide spectrum of knowledge topics. It’s a great honor to collaborate with Paul. Paul and I met only weeks ago. In a very short time, chatting day and night using Teams, we shared life stories as well as our greatest aspirations. Each of us has trusted the other with our intellectual property in our collaboration aimed on educating professionals in the most effective way.  I am privileged to bring Paul’s Hood’s knowledge at no added cost to A4A members and add his electives to the A4A course catalog.
