Our expert says:
Is this necessarily a problem ? Presumably his mom has always been supportive and given him good advice. Do you want him to ignore her in future and take advice only from you ? He's known her all his life, and known you for 8 months. You're not being selfish, but unrealistic, and these concerns are based more on power issues, and feeling low on the pecking order of importance in his life, rather than on a desire to help him and concern that he is getting bad advice and that you could do better.
If in time your advice proves to be as reliably good as his family's he will probably start to take you more seriously.
