At a conference this week for the top 300 advisors affiliated with my broker/dealer and it’s been amazing. Top highlights so far:
1. In a male-dominated industry like financial services it is so damn awesome that in the last 6 years since I’ve affiliated with this broker/dealer, 4 of those years saw a female as the #1 advisor. Fellow female advisors, let’s keep breaking those stereotypes and proving that there is no glass ceiling for us here!
2. Last year at the recommendation of a client, I read a book by Shawn Achor called The Happiness Advantage about happiness generating success and not the other way around. I was SO excited to see that Shawn was the main guest speaker and his presentation today was the best I’ve heard in a very long time. Yep, I had kind of a mini-celebrity crush moment 😜
This year’s top advisor conference is coming to a close and once again it did not disappoint. I feel so blessed to have a mutually respectful relationship with my clients. I think they are the best and they know I will always put their best interests first and help them achieve their goals even if it means having tough conversations both ways. Thank you to all of my clients - each of you contributed to my success in this career that I love and I am so grateful for your support! ❤️
