ABSTRACT
The article discusses the importance to financial planners of being honest, both with their clients and themselves. Despite the intention on the part of most to do both well and good, mistakes are inevitable. When we do err, critical self-appraisal is essential to recognizing the problem and taking the necessary steps toward ameliorating it. Financial planners can take honesty one step further by summoning the humility and open-mindedness to submit their own finances to the scrutiny of a planner.
