Business Coaching for (Newer) RIAs & Financial Advisors

 Business Coaching for Financial Advisors

New RIAs and financial advisors. Grow your financial firm on a strong footing.

I love working with Top Advisors and my programs are geared towards their needs.  However, I’m always looking for affordable ways to help (newer) advisors to become Top Advisors.   For my purposes, you’re new” if you’ve been independent or working for a firm for less than 3 years and your revenues are under 250K.  OR you’ve been around the block a few times but your revenue is less than 250K a year.

In the past few months, I’ve had conversations with many newer advisors who come to the gate with big lofty goals and small pocket books (purses, or attaché cases).

Advisors: Are you doing too much? Is it time to outsource more?

Delegating the first few times is not easy.  It will become easier once you do it a few times.  Delegating is necessary if your goal is to work smarter as you grow your firm.  Million dollar producers delegate!  Here’s why… and what you can do about hiring employees, outsourcing, or adding new technology to your firm.

How To Make Your LinkedIn Profile URL Shorter

ID-100249677When you joined LinkedIn, their system  automatically assigned a Public Profile URL to your account.  It looks something like this:  http://www.LinkedIn.com/in/yourname/0/123/123

Make it shorter.

Extra letters and numbers make URLs harder to remember.

Sometimes, advisors who aren’t allowed to have their own websites (yet), use their LinkedIn address as a substitute for a website.  I often see those long random URLs on business cards.  It bears repeating:  Every extra letter or number in a URL makes it harder to remember (and type in correctly) when someone attempts to contact you.

You can do better than that!

Currently, LinkedIn allows you to change the URL for your LinkedIn profile.

Let Freedom Ring!

FREEDOM!

For me it looks like being able to travel across the country and taking off on Fridays when I want to.

For my sister Martie, it’s living in NY and CA.

For YOU…?

Freedom is the #1 reason most advisor-owners go independent.

LibertyBellSmCIMG0212Having the freedom to work with clients “the right way” is so important. If you’re about treating clients right, but YOU’RE not able to go where you want, and do what you want when you want, chances are that your business isn’t supporting you.

You can change that.

If you don’t have the freedom you crave to do what you want–when you want–it’s because you don’t have a team, don’t have a big enough team, or your team isn’t working cohesively.

RIAs: What’s Your Business Model Look Like?

orghartAdvisors are often running a practice that is quite different from the type of practice they went independent to run.  Their business model is often one reasons they end up frustrated and feeling overwhelmed.

Working on (or towards) the “right” business model is extremely important — and something to decide upon before improving a firm’s operations and marketing.

Since I work with clients on developing their ideal practices, the subject of business models comes up very early as we work together.

In September I’ll complete a report that includes samples of the various types of advisory business models along with organizations charges.
