Oftentimes advisors want to grow their business and pass down their knowledge. To do so, they bring on interns and a lot of the time, it goes horribly wrong.

Joining our host, Matt Halloran, is returning guest Marci Bair and her partner, Victor Orozco, of Bair Financial LLC to discuss how you can build a successful partnership within your firm.
Marci made a previous appearance on Top Advisor Marketing Podcast where she discussed how you can truly niche yourself; however, she wouldn’t have obtained her current level of success if not for Victor.
If you’re thinking about broadening your firm and want to grow with someone, listen today to learn valuable advice on how you can make a lasting partnership.

Benchmarks are a cornerstone to your business success. They give you an opportunity to reflect, evaluate, and challenge yourself in the upcoming year to meet goals. However, benchmarks can be another one of those tasks that simply gets forget. As people say, when something works well, we tend to stop doing it simply because we don't acknowledge or allocate for it.
Coach Joe has a three part process to help you wrap up 2018 and set yourself on a better path for 2019. Get your benchmarks set, and roll on past them with your most successful year yet!

We all have "plans" but what makes plans a reality? Actually DOING them. So when it comes to building your business plan what's stopping you? For many of us it's that we simply right it down as something to get done, without taking the necessary steps to make it happen. Whether that's blocking our calendar time, arranging a coaching session to prepare for the plan, or simply getting your team together to discuss the business you're building.
Listen in as Coach Joe explains the value in planning your plan, and get ready to rock in 2019!
