Many people reject a career as a financial adviser because they think it is a difficult sales job. Unlike someone who is selling a dress which a consumer can immediately see how good she looks in it or someone selling a weight reduction pills which a consumer can see the effect in week or months, financial products can be very intangible.
The effect of a financial adviser’s proposal will be felt by the client only in years to come when the client manage to retire comfortably. In some cases, a financial adviser’s proposal may be tested much earlier than he wished…. that’s when a claim arises.
(One of the cheques made out to a client.)
As usual, mixed feeling when we deliver cheques to clients. On one hand, I know what I have been doing really help the client. To know the client can have a peace of mind and not to worry about their medical cost as well as loss of income due to sickness is fulfilling. On the other hand, we are sad that clients have suffered.
To all the financial advisers out there, keep up the noble work despite the rejections that you may had faced.
