This will piss some people off, but it needs to be addressed.

The “financial advisor” industry as a whole is pretty shady.

I can’t think of another industry that’s so hard to distinguish between a salesperson and a true professional.

If you have a sales quota of any kind you should not be able to call yourself a financial advisor. PERIOD.

That’s the epitome of a conflict of interest.

To be completely honest, I actually started my career at a firm that had sales quotas and I’m grateful for that experience.

It taught me how this business should NOT be done.

Now my career is so much more fulfilling and both my clients and my business are reaching levels of success I could never have imagined.

Bottom line – when your interests are aligned with your clients it pays HUGE dividends.

Cheers to the real financial advisors out there!
