A fee only financial planner receives remuneration solely from an individual engaging his or her services. Other payments in the form of reimbursement from additional sources as well as commissions are frowned upon in the strictest practice of this trade. As such, the numbers getting on board this bandwagon are understandably few as job attraction in terms of easy and great monetary gain paints a rather uninviting picture. This is not to say remuneration is any lesser than those who supposedly are privy to all income sources. Although channels seem rather constrictive, the fee charged varies from one client to the other, one planner to the other. The amount may be calculated based on a percentage of assets under the planner’s purview. In other cases, the planner charges a flat rate on an annual basis. Some may offer hourly rates for clients wishing to make use of their services for a short term or testing waters before plunging headlong into the financial tide.
One wishing to embark on such a career choice must, first and foremost, put his or her client’s financial interest ahead of personal agendas. Needless to say, many claim to be more than what they really are bringing to the table. A glib presenter is no different from the Pied Piper of Hamelin, stringing along its town residents and rodents to destruction. To ensure one does not suffer the same fate, it is advisable for the credentials of the supposed professional. Depending on the region, the true professionals are registered to a handful of recognized associations who monitor and manage the pool of creditable resources. Ideally, a fee only financial planner is to be a master of all trades, financial that is. Potential clients should rightfully possess some trade knowledge to be able to tell up from down, left from right. By leveraging on the expertise across a vast horizon of financial possibilities, clients are then presented with the choicest of offerings to park their investments.
There are a lot combinations and available accessories that can go along with your kids’ Bermuda shorts. This is just one of the great advantages of having such comfy and great apparel. And there you go another advantage of it is the softness and the comfort it brings to the user. If you are not aware of the information, this is often an issue for young boys. The boys always want or vote more on the comfort features than those of fashion. Another great thing about Bermuda pants is that you can wear it any time and I mean any time of the year, no matter what is the season. For example, for summer times, there are light, soft cotton Bermuda shorts that the kids can wear. For spring time, there are those made from corduroy and wool and of course for those super cold winter days there are Bermuda shorts that are made from warm fabrics. And since we mention about boys’ preference, there are those that are made from jeans or denim, yes believe it or not.
I have been involved with the Boy Scouts for many years. While I’m not currently doing any scouting, I was a Cub Scout, Webelo and Boy Scout as a kid. As an adult, I was an adult volunteer, Assistant Scoutmaster of a Troop in Ohio and started a Cub Scout pack in Georgia. One of my biggest regrets in life was not working harder as a Boy Scout to get my Eagle Scout rank. It didn’t mean anything to me as an early teen and baseball and band took over my life as more important activities and I eventually quit attending Scout meetings. They teach boys how to be better students, better stewards of the land, better citizens and better men. It makes better entrepreneurs. In this series of blog posts, I’ll discuss what entrepreneurs could learn from the Boy Scouts by studying the Boy Scout Motto, the Boy Scout Slogan, the Boy Scout Oath, and the Boy Scout Law. Those of you who grew up in Scouting are smiling already and can probably jump ahead to the punch line, so let’s begin with the Boy Scout Motto.
