By now you all know what a guru is. He, or she, is someone who knows a lot more than anyone else on a related subject. And in money matters, there are those who are above the board in terms of their financial knowledge and expertise. These are the men and women that thousands of productive men and women are turning to every year for help on how to manage their financial affairs.
If the financial services guru has turned out the projected results and the client has readily and in a disciplined manner, complied with the guru’s recommendations, then this job certainly has its rewards, in more ways than one. Nothing can be more pleasing than to see the hard but intelligent work pay off. Nothing is more rewarding than being able to keep a well-satisfied client on commission for the long-term.
And yet, like anything else commercial, the financial services provider will be up to his arms in market competitiveness. It can take years to realize any returns on reputational work done and the results that go along with it. To this end, it makes prudent sense for a single consultant to broaden her own financial horizons by signing up with a financial services franchise network. As a startup engineer, she is receiving all the required support that goes with the typical vagaries of opening an office in a competitive but friendly market environment.
There will, of course, be limitations in terms of capital support. The small business owner cannot be expected to be treated with kid gloves, nor can he expect to be given handouts. Of course, he will know this all too well. This is not the way the cookie crumbles in the hard-core business environment.
