Somewhere between the consumer confusion oftentimes caused by our free market economy, the political and economic uncertainty of our times, and the blinding pace of modern life, a basic truth remains:  individuals and families need accurate information and advice, and they want to be educated and cared for by their advisors. Fortunately this fundamental need and desire can be fulfilled once the consumer decides not to accept anything less.  Along these lines, determine and give yourself permission to (1) expect education (current and continuing), (2) expect client care, and (3) expect the best.  When the client-student is ready, the professional teacher-educator will appear.
