Episode 9 – Listener Letter “Feeling Stuck”

Dave GrantDave Grant is an internationally known planner from the Chicago-land area and in this episode he helps us to respond to an e-mail from Kristen, a financial advisor and listener.  She shared with us her story and struggles with feeling lost in the industry. I know there are far more people in financial planning that can relate to her, and her questions, than we might think.  This is a hard profession to break into, but it is worth it.

Thank you, Kristen, for the e-mail.  I hope you know that you are not alone and that you find your place in the profession.

Episode 7 – Partnerships

Rett Dean and Sean Kelleher

In this episode, Rett Dean and Sean Kelleher share insights from their partnership at Riverchase Financial Planning. What does a picture from the Grand Canyon have to do with their partnership? Join us as we discuss everything from their approach to sharing an office and servicing clients to how competition between 50/50 partners benefits the clients.

After hearing Rett and Sean’s podcast, I think young financial planners should seriously consider partnering with others when they start their own firms.
