Get motivated to grow your business!
It is SO IMPORTANT for my Financial Advisor clients to write a Business Plan! WHY? Because I like to say, if you don’t have a business development plan that is written and easy to follow, you will NOT grow your business as fast and intelligently as you could.
It’s like going on vacation, but not planning out where you’re going.
It’s like taking a road trip, but not using Google Maps or a navigation system to get you there.
It’s like your very own clients, not planning their retirement income strategies.
Planning for your Business Success
This is the cornerstone of my coaching success with my advisor clients because a well-thought-out Business Plan that is strategic can be BRILLIANT! Rather than guessing with what you should be doing on a daily / weekly / and monthly basis, your plan will keep you accountable.
My clients thank me for my Business Plan system!
It’s not easy to write a plan if you don’t have existing plans to follow. Having a template and then samples of various business models, this can be illuminating.
Follow a Process
Are you looking for a Financial Advisor Business Plan Template that’s easy to use, has 4 sample advisor business plans to follow, includes a Course for Writing Your Plan, and a Fill-in-the Blanks template?

Necessity is the mother of invention!
How did I come up with this? One of my first clients back in 2004 wanted to write a Business Plan but getting him to do it was a real chore. Every week I asked “What progress have you made?” and he hummed and hawwwed. “I haven’t had the time” he said. “I’ve been working with new clients, thanks to you” he said. Well, I was happy about that. Nevertheless, he needed a plan, so I said:
“What do I need to do to get you to finish this plan?”
“Well, it’s too long and takes too much time. Can we shorten it?” he said.
AHA! The Financial Advisor Business Plan template was born
And then a light bulb went off for me! That’s when I created my system and it is still in use today, only updated every year since with new strategies and tactics.
