Our Financial Representatives experience the three motivators described below:
Autonomy: Financial Representatives run their own business and operate as entrepreneurs. You’ll receive tremendous up front support and make your own decisions regarding markets, areas of specialization and the team with which you will surround yourself.
Mastery: The financial services industry is constantly changing. The need to expand your knowledge in order to meet the evolving circumstance of your clients provides tremendous intellectual satisfaction and the ongoing potential to improve your skill set. We firmly believe we have one of the strongest training and support programs in the industry, allowing you to efficiently run your business, while continuing to expand your knowledge.
Impact: Very few careers genuinely afford you an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others. It is by doing proper planning, that the dreams and goals of the business owners, the families and the individuals that we work with, are addressed. Few other careers have such a direct connection between daily work and its ultimate benefit.
