Do you feel like you are on a journey? If so, how are you navigating the ups and downs, twists and turns, certainty, and uncertainty of your life? 

I've discovered that one of the greatest rewards of being a financial advisor is guiding clients on their financial journey. 


Let's explore how your personal journey can strengthen your work of serving clients and customers. 

How can you share your journey in a professional and motivating manner to benefit your customers and grow your business? 

Let the journey begin! 


Learning Objectives: 

  • Encourage attendees to reflect on their journey in life and work. 
  • Build awareness of their journey. 
  • Open the way for utilizing the learnings of their journey to serve clients/customers. 
  • Motivating attendees to be open with their journey in a professional manner to help their clients/customers succeed.
