Episode 144, Season 2
The financial world, from the outside, can be seen as dry, numbers-driven and typically quite boring. It is easy to hide the more colourful parts of who you are to put forward a professional image that fits within the mould of a typical financial adviser. However, with the rise of social media and a newly personal Zoom-centric world, bringing your true self to your client interactions is more encouraged than ever.
In this episode, we speak to one adviser who believes we should do just that. Dawn Thomas, a senior financial adviser from Wealthwise Financial Planning in Perth talks about getting involved in industry awards, the value of having mentors, overcoming imposter syndrome and how to attract the right kind of clients for your business.
This episode is all about thinking outside the box when it comes to communicating your message, and what it means to embrace your community in a way that they can understand and relate to. We even hear some great examples from Dawn’s new project on Youtube: Combining cooking videos with financial education!
