“It’s almost like I was running with my head cut off”
If you are like me… then you are a sprinter. You tackle everything you face head-on and in a sprint. Sometimes you need to surround yourself with people who will fill in those blind spots. As a financial advisor, sometimes you need someone who can tell you “Slow Down, Man!”. Throughout the years, I have learned that this is the case for most financial advisors.
In today’s episode, I joined Mitch Lagadin on his “Slow Down, Man” podcast. We got to have some great discussions about being a financial advisor, and my book Freedom Street: How I Learned to Create a Rich Life, Live My Legacy, and Own the Future as a Financial Advisor.
We talked about having the ability to slow down in life and appreciate the moments as they happen. As a business owner, I would sometimes struggle to put all my energy in the right places. One night helped me see things a little bit differently. In my book, I mention a story called, “Good Friend, Good Bourbon, and an Epiphany”, and I realized where we spend our time is really where we give our love.
“This is the case for most financial advisors”
If you are a sprinter, you might relate to spending a lot of your time in the wrong places. It’s quite easy to get caught up in the weeds. But if you just take a minute to slow down, you could start giving your love to the right places.
Everything Mitch and I talk about in this episode is really to help anyone who may feel unsure about their next chapter in life.
