"The benefit you will provide in your clients' lives dwarfs any commission you're making. Remember that when someone snaps at you for doing your job."

Life has ups and downs just like the stock market. We should all be good at explaining normal market volatility to our clients so they have realistic expectations. Know that life is the same way. Expect the ups and downs. It’s cyclical like the seasons. The ones we don’t like won’t last forever

Hi 🐟! For people that have been to the biometric appointment recently in NYC, were you allowed to bring your cell phone and bag with you?

I’m going there by myself so no other friends can hold my phone or bag for me temporarily.

I’ve been using SmartAsset now for about 18 months. The partnership started hot, but has quickly fizzled out. They have started trying to change for duplicate leads that are more than 90 days old, the live connection calls aren’t as advertised, and many of the leads don’t expect or want your call. If there was a button that said “do you understand that a financial advisor is going to call you”-it might be a better platform. I wouldn’t recommend working with them. Hope this helps someone.
