It’s practically a financial planning commandment.
Thou shalt obey the compliance officer.
And even if those words have never been etched into stone, it’s still rock-solid advice. After all, if you DON’T follow their advice, your financial planning career will be doomed. Forever.
Knowing this, you take compliance seriously.
You read what they publish.
You study for their exams.
You tweak every process until it’s perfect.
But does this help you? I mean, does this help you to move forward?
If you’re honest, you can’t help but feel mortified at the prospect of staying hopelessly trapped in the compliance officer’s rules.
You want to break out. You want to escape. You want to do it your way.
