The Power of Coaching for Financial Advisors with Jamie Hopkins, MBA, CFP®, LLM, CLU®, CHFC®, RICP® (Ep. 50)



Advisor success often leads to new problems:

For example, when running our own business, it is natural to want to step into each business role to stay true to the brand we are creating. Although admirable, it is almost impossible to manage every single process.

By delegating, coaching, and offering your expertise in certain areas to new hires, you can sit back and focus on the aspects that matter, bringing in new prospects and managing the business the way you see fit.

In this episode, Brad Swineheart speaks with the managing partner of wealth solutions at Carson Group, Jamie Hopkins. Jamie explains how growing a business starts with handing off jobs to employees while detailing the value of failing to grow and succeed. 

Jamie discusses: 

  • How to determine if your employees are benefiting your business 
  • The power of delegating, especially in a new business environment
  • Key factors to look for when recruiting new employees
  • The importance of promoting growth within your business
  • And more!
