We are all individuals and we all have our own wants and needs. One of the most important questions financial advisors should be asking is, “What is your definition of success?” Whatever answer comes out of a person’s mouth after that should be one of the most valuable things that person can say during the whole meeting. No matter what that answer is, it is now our job as an advisor to help them achieve their goal. We have heard some crazy definitions of success over the years, and we have tried to figure out how to achieve them all.
People ask us from time to time who our favorite client is to work with. It’s usually not the people who have the most money, but the people who know what they want and are willing to make changes in order to achieve their goal. If you want the best results with most anything in life, you have to be willing to ask for help, look at things differently and have laser focus.
It is our feeling that the normal advisor doesn’t give people customized plans, they give people one or two options because those are the only ways they get paid. Or they are only equipped to help people do one or two things like save for retirement or send someone income from the money they have saved for retirement. You need an uncommon advisor that will help you with whatever your goals are and help you achieve them in an uncommon way, usually ways that you haven’t even thought of.
Many people underestimate the potential of what they can do financially. It’s amazing what can be accomplished when you have a customized plan built for you that takes into account your goals. If you have never experienced this, we would be honored to put a plan together for you and show you why you are your best asset!
