This word "Relationship" is the vehicle so many unqualified, irresponsible and unscrupulous individuals invoke to dupe the prospective client into hiring them into service. Please, anyone that is in need of reviewing for an advisor this spring, investigate the industry to determine your needs before you interview. Without education you will be vulnerable to the person or group who befriends you and makes you feel special with this sense of confidence based on "Relationship" not worthiness.
Consider this scenario: You have just developed a disease and you need advice on this medical dilema. Are you going to look for expertise or opportunity for a Relationship? The relationship whether good, bad, or indifferent will come about due to the situation which brings the parties together and will probably be reflective of the outcome of that event or events. Selecting an Advisor should be finalized after thorough knowledge of what one needs and what someone else can offer.
Find ethical accomplished expertise. Don't be fooled by the "Relationship" act.
