We see many advisors hire new people or partner up with someone in order to alleviate the stress of being stretched so thin that they are unable to serve their clients. In our years of consulting experience, we’ve seen many teams who still cannot achieve their goals and who add on more stress by now having to deal with people management challenges. So, many don’t create the synergy they so desire, and in reality they only confirm that misery loves company. If this sounds familiar and you want to stop the chaos, you need to clean house. You need to renovate your business, hone in on what you really do well and have a passion for, and eliminate any business that doesn’t fit. Then and only then can you build the team of your dreams – one that you are proud to be a leader of and that fulfills your personal and professional goals.
