“Weekend Content for New Financial Planners” is a collection of articles, podcasts, videos, etc. that I’ve been consuming regarding breaking into financial planning, industry trends, career development, and more.
Michael Kitces, Carl Richards, and Bill Bachrach on communicating your fees to prospective clients: describing your value, framing your fees, and more [Article]:
Kitces: “‘Show me a prospect meeting where the prospect talked 80% of the time and it’s a very high likelihood that they’re going to end [up] doing business’ with you ‘because, at the end of the day, if they feel like they got their stuff out there and they feel heard,’ that tends to work in the advisor’s favor.”
