Growing up we were taught to “get along” with everyone and not make waves. Well let me tell you: You’ve got to make a fuss to stand out in the crowd. No one will hear your message unless you take a stand.
Your knowledge is worth paying for and learning how to speak up and ask for what you’re worth is vital to your success. Being confident and secure in the knowledge that you have something valuable to contribute will allow you to achieve your goals.
Why would someone pick you over any other [male] advisor or professional? What is special about you? Learn to speak your “truth” and go for what you want!
Your growth in the financial industry depends upon your willingness to invest in YOU. This means investing in skills, credentials, and coaching. Professional athletes have long known the value of coaching. Now it’s your turn.
Women have skills unique to their gender. Creativity in the workplace encourages growth, conversation, personality, and empathy. Women have the ability to transfer creative skills into financial services to position themselves uniquely.
Growing your firm and your career means making a decision to change what you are doing now. This could mean updating your brand to appeal to a more distinctive target market. It could mean developing leadership skills to manage your staff and encourage ownership in your firm’s success.
Most likely it means that you will GROW. When you work with me as your coach I encourage you to try on new behaviors, step out of your comfort zone, and find ways to develop your business success muscle.
I’ve had the benefit of being mentored by my father, a successful international entrepreneur. Business success skills come naturally to me because I was taught to take risks, be outspoken, and go out and get what I want. This helps me coach you more effectively.
If you’ve never created goals for your practice or career growth, you will when you work with me. Something magical happens when you decide to dream big and go after what you want.
Incentivizing your staff to help you grow is a matter of developing personal and business goals. Hiring the right staff will help you reach your goals.
Women have an amazing opportunity to brand their firms in a creative manner that male advisors are not able to leverage. Get clients from your website using your brand and search engine optimization. I would LOVE to guide you in creating a website destination for your ideal clients by using quality branding.
You have the benefit of creativity in crafting the firm’s marketing strategy. There’s no reason why you have to stick with the way things have always been done. You have the power to own your strengths.
There is a better way to create a good life outside work. I can help you balance your obligations so that you are getting the most out of your career and your life. Create an ideal career where you have more time for the things you love.
You’ll need centers of influence to help you service your clients. Are you receiving reciprocal referrals? Are you making the right contacts? Are you leveraging your profession?
Something magical happens when you are held accountable to me as your coach. You will get things done.
Focusing on your goals and working on your business weekly will help you maintain a positive center of attention in your practice.
Success doesn’t happen overnight. Growing your practice and your career means making changes slowly over time to avoid burnout.

“Suzanne’s advice was invaluable when it came time for me to brand my independent financial advisory firm. Our work prior on target market, combined with help selecting my company name and colors and building my website have helped me attract my ideal clients and a consistent flow of leads from my website.”

“I highly recommend Suzanne’s services to anyone who is interested in growing their business and maintaining a healthy balance outside of work as well.”
“I truly feel that without Suzanne’s guidance, my business would not have flourished. Her expertise in my field helped me produce the results I needed more quickly. But most importantly, she made me safe enough to recognize the weaknesses in my business (and myself). You can fix anything once you recognize the problem!!”
