Successful business owners usually embrace the need for a coach or mentor. Last week I was an expert panelist for the Women Advisors Forum’s “Reaching the Top” panel in Chicago. I was honored to be amongst other successful women financial advisors that shared the same philosophies on practice management. One common thread that we shared was that we had all, at some point, had a support system to surround us. I like to refer to this kind of mentor group as “A Personal Board of Directors”.
Surround yourself with this “board of directors” -mentors, close friends, and family members who can support you in both your business life as well as your personal life. You’ll need “tough love” and unconditional support to weather the good and the bad in all areas of your personal, business, and financial life.
