Episode 146, Season 2
Being given the opportunity to enter an existing financial planning business and undertake a complete rebrand is a rare opportunity that requires extensive planning and consideration. From the name, marketing, client processes and growth strategies, there is a balance to be struck between building the business of your dreams and serving existing clients in a way they are comfortable with.
In this episode, we speak to Simone Du Chesne, a financial adviser based in Sydney who found herself in this exact situation. Growing up with parents who ran a successful financial planning business, Simone found herself in the world of advice, looking for a change in work/life balance after a successful career in marketing. We discuss what goes into a name, joint ventures for growth, career pathways, and what its like to be awarded the AFA Adviser of the Year.
This episode is all about getting valuable insight into how an award winning financial advice practice is run, and what values go into creating a business with loyal and long-lasting clients. We find out so much of Simone’s unique journey, and she even shares a breakdown of what happens in each of her client meetings!
