We have all heard that the last place we should look for medical information is on the Internet. Everyone has a story about some friend who found a freckle on their back, took to the Internet, and soon had themselves convinced they had just days to live. We go to doctors for a reason: They are experts in their field.

Financial advisors often find themselves in a similar position. You are also experts in your field, which is why people come to you.

Many of your clients have Googled their financial freckles and have come to some pretty startling conclusions about their investment plans.
