Empty promises of making money online at home. Add to Cart failed.
Carl Richards By Carl Richards July 11, I fear the clever marketing in the traditional financial services industry continues to confuse many people. This concern makes me think of the sketch above, which I shared many years ago in a different context. Some expectations of the financial professionals we hire can lead to enormous disappointment, since these particular titles mean nothing.

How to Make Money Online Ethically (2019)
You probably walk in fully expecting the Toyota salesperson to encourage you to buy a Toyota. Go into every financial relationship with your eyes wide open. Demand a frank conversation with any financial professional, minus any jargon, before handing over your money.
Those in the financial services industry — and I count myself among them — should be embarrassed by the reality behind the clever marketing. And you have every right to be upset.
Shame on all of us. But now that you know what to expect, do not be surprised if a title does not guarantee you unbiased advice.
