Why does saying â€œtrust meâ€ accomplish the opposite? Because it violates social norms, and because it is self-contradictory.
More importantly, â€œtrusted advisorâ€ is something you want others to say about you, not say it yourself. You can talk about it amongst yourselves, hope for itâ€”but not proclaim it.
Saying you are, or want to be, someoneâ€™s trusted advisor, is like saying you are, or want to be, really humble.
I wonder if Trusted Advisor Associates gave themselves that name or their clients named them. 🙂 Just a joke…the guys at Trusted Advisor Associates are well known around the industry as excellent business partners and consultants.
