marketing and business tips for advisors

Here is an excellent article (written by Joe Anthony) for advisors who want to stay relevant in the current marketplace. I especially like that it points out the wisdom of learning to work with women investors.

My favorite key points:

  • Women control more than half of American personal wealth
  • 70 percent of women would prefer to work with a female advisor
  • The financial services industry is experiencing a talent shortage

This clearly represents an opportunity for the advisor who can read between the lines.

Consider how you relate to and communicate with women investors if you want to thrive in the current feminine economy. Because right now, the typical older white male advisor stereotype isn’t cutting it for the ladies (sorry guys!).

That means there’s less competition for the female advisor, but also for male advisors who can brand themselves effectively as someone who gets women’s money issues.

Enjoy the article!

Success in business requires intense personal development

Being in business for yourself is an inevitable lesson of intense transformation and personal development.

If you are in sales or starting a new business (or even if you’ve been in business for a while), be willing to do the deep work on yourself that is necessary to achieve your dreams and goals.

Be open and available to work on yourself, because nothing changes until you do. The state of a business is merely a reflection of its leader.

Success doesn’t just happen. As you grow, your business and your income grows, too. Be relentless in your pursuit of developing yourself to be the excellent leader God called you to be.
