Last week, I was networking with Jose Silva, who has enjoyed a long and successful career as a financial advisor. We were discussing his marketing strategy and brainstorming ideas about how we could help each other with our connections. During our chat, Jose brought up a great point. We were discussing social media management and […]

That means instead of chasing prospects, they actually come looking for you. Soak that in for a minute. Doesn’t that sound nice?
