Podcast cover

When it comes to dreams, there are two types: those you do and those you don't do. The good news is, they're both O.K. But here's the big question. How do you know which is which?

Rank #4: The Power of Pretending

Podcast cover
Read more
Pretending plays a powerful role in our lives. For instance, we're good at telling ourselves that certain things are a problem. Funny enough though, these so-called problems don't always have anything to do with what's happening right now, but what might happen. What if we use our power of pretending to help us put aside these "problems" so they don't get in the way of doing meaningful work?

Rank #5: Goals for Real Financial Advisors, Part 5

Podcast cover
Read more
In this final episode of the series on goals, it's time to be really honest about uncertainty. As helpful as we find Monte Carlo simulations, they doesn't remove all uncertainty. And our clients know it. So if you want to really help your clients reach their goals, you need to become committed to the process of planning and not some outdated map.

Rank #7: Why I Hired A Real Advisor - Part 2

Podcast cover
Read more
In part two of my series on why I hired an advisor, I reflect on the need to have someone remind me of my goals and the reasons why I said these things were important to me. Specifically, I wanted someone who would be there during those moments when I'd be tempted to throw aside my plan and my goals for something new to say, "Wait just a minute. Has what you valued most changed or is this something else?" To learn more about being a real financial advisor, sign up for the Behavior Gap Newsletter: www.behaviorgap.com.

Rank #8: Make It Simple

Podcast cover
Read more
Every time I suggest financial advisors keep things simple, I hear a pretty common fear. "If it's too simple, they won't need us anymore." I get it, but I also want you to remember that the real reason people are working with advisors doesn't stop when you stop using jargon and help people cut through the complexity.

Rank #9: Humility As an Advisor, Part 2

Podcast cover

Practicing humility means we need to address the confirmation bias head on. After all, if we're only reading, hearing, and seeing a point of view that we agree with, it's hard to learn something new or see where we might be wrong.

Rank #10: Learning to Cope with Anxiety

Podcast cover
Read more
In order to both do our work as real advisors AND do it for a long time, we need to do a better job taking care of ourselves. Because here's the reality. Our clients need a place they can come to dump their anxiety, and if we aren't taking care of ourselves, we'll drown beneath their anxieties and our own anxieties, too.

Rank #13: Do Nothing

Podcast cover
Read more
After real financial advisors have done the hard work of building a well-designed portfolio, one of the best things we can encourage our clients (and ourselves) to do is ... drum roll please ... nothing! I know it sounds counterintuitive until you consider Warren Buffett's perspective on investing: "Benign neglect, bordering on sloth, remains the hallmark of our investment process." However, it turns out that doing nothing can be really difficult. To learn more about being a real financial advisor, sign up for the Behavior Gap Newsletter: www.behaviorgap.com.

Rank #20: Entrepreneurship Series 02: Inserting Your Opinion Into the World

Podcast cover
Read more
The stereotypes we associate with business - boring, guys in suits, only about profit - aren't the only options available to us. For me, I see creating and building a business as a way to insert our opinion into the world. That's why entrepreneurship, at its core, is about creativity. Just imagine the difference you can make in the world if you choose to make your business a platform for supporting the change you want to see. To learn more, visit behaviorgap.com.
