    The industry owes it to clients to correctly differentiate between salespeople and true fiduaciary advisors.

    Whether you are an advisor or an adviser, commissioned or salaried, have numerous industry designations after your name or none, you either have the honesty and integrity to do what is in the best interests of your clients, or you don't. It is as simple as that!

    Either you are motivated by the fear of losing your job if you do not meet your quota, or by the greed for personal financial gain, or by always doing what is in the best interests of your clients.

    Every profession is trying to "sell" you to be their services. Every financial institution is trying to "sell" you their products and services. There is absolutely nothing wrong with "selling" as long as it is in the best interests of the client and you place your clients' needs ahead of your own.
