Fee Only Financial Advisor Vs. Commission-Based

We would like to quickly touch on the topic of being a Fee-Only or Commission-Based financial advisor . As you know we highly recommend doing everything in your power to convert to Fee-Only for several reasons. Reasons like:

  1. Recurring Income from management fees instead of one upfront commission payout that gives you little to no incentive to continue servicing your clients and properly managing their accounts.
  2. Limiting or removing the temptation to sell products that yield you a high commission all while being horrible for your clients.
  3. Entering into and maintaining an ongoing mutually rewarding relationship with your clients that will allow your financial practice to flourish because your client’s accounts are flourishing.

If you have any further thoughts, questions or comments please feel free to add to this discussion.

We look forward to your input.

THE GOLDEN RULE VS. THE RULE OF GOLD

So, which group are you in?

Those who follow the “Golden Rule”? OR those who follow the “Rule of Gold”? 

According to Michael Masterson in his excellent book, “Ready, Fire, Aim”… everyone fits into one of these two groups.  

Basically, those in the “Golden Rule” group are “Sharers” with an Abundance Mindset.

They believe wealth is something that can be expanded and shared. So, they give and share knowing that there’s more than enough to go around. They also know that if they give… it will return to them in one way or another. In other words, you reap what you sow.

Those is the “Rule of Gold” group are “Hoarders” with a Scarcity Mindset.
