What is the biggest lesson you learned from a client?

One of the most important lessons I ever learned from a client is that having their best interest and the interest of their family as your main priority is without question the most lasting impression that will be left with them.  My experience was that I was pursuing a client for over two years and she finally chose another advisor over me mainly because the pricing for management services was a little more attractive to her from another organization. She came back to me a little over a year later and asked if she could work with me moving forward. I asked her why she decided to switch and she said I always remembered that your interests were my interest and sincerely caring for someone is long-term and pricing and services are short-term.
