Who’s the Boss?

I still recall clearly, as a newly minted Insurance and Investment Advisor, back in the 1990’s, reading and accepting the Code of Ethics.

Before long there will be many other stores with no cashiers or sales staff – we will simply scan a QR code posted with merchandise to get every bit of relevant sales information we need.
