A short and simple post which goes to show that great financial advisers put most of their time and effort into listening.  

Whether on Social Media or meeting face-to-face, great listening is at the very heart of robust and close client/adviser relationships.  

This also tells us that Social Media is in fact not all about self-promotion and marketing, whereas it can be much more valuable networking, researching and listening.

And as Financial Life Planners, listening is even more important if we're to be regarded as a trusted professional by clients.  That's why we strive hard to put listening and empathy at the top of our skill set.
