A Genesis Tale

"First God made heaven and earth.
The earth was without form and void,
and darkness was upon the face of the deep;
and the Spirit of God was moving over the face of the waters."
- Genesis, Chapter 1, verses 1 and 2

Day 1
God saw that money was without form, and darkness was upon it.
And God said, “Let there be financial engineering, that money may have form and be multiplied.”
And it was so, and God saw that it was good.

Day 2
God saw that there was no one to promote money in all its forms.
And God said, “Let there be Wall Street, that money in all its forms may be spread to the far reaches of the earth.”
And it was so, and God saw that it was good.

Day 3
God saw that Wall Street had no one to send out upon the earth to sell money.
And God said, “Let there be Salesmen, that the products of Wall Street may have promoters.”
And it was so, and God saw that it was good.

Day 4
God saw that the Salesmen had no one to call on.
And God said, “Let there be Prospects, that the Salesmen have someone to call upon.”
And it was so, and God saw that it was good.

Day 5
God heard the anguished cries of the Salesmen that they could not make enough money on salary alone.
And God said, “Let there be commissions, that the Salesmen shall earn bounteous incomes from the Prospects.”
And it was so, and God saw that it was good.

Day 6
And God saw that there was wickedness and avarice in Wall Street and the Salesmen, and the Prospects were crying out in anguish.
And God said, “Let there be independent advisors, that the Prospects may receive unbiased advice from fiduciaries.”
And it was so, and God saw that it was good.

Day 7
And God rested. Finally.

(I am an independent advisor and I accept the fiduciary role for my clients).
