1) Follow The Money!

Our initial thoughts can often be, "I can't think of anyone!" And that's OK, we get it.

An exercise we often find beneficial is what we call "Follow Your Money". Think of the sizeable investments you've made over the past day, week, month or several months.

Do you have:

  • Home or Automobile Insurance?
  • A Mortgage?
  • Have you visited the Chiropractor, RMT or other Health Practitioner lately?
  • Who does your taxes?
  • Is your Financial Advisor someone you trust? (We sure hope so!)
  • Often looking back at where you've spent your money recently can help you think of trusted referral partners. Personally, I spent a bit of money on my haircut this week and also had my car serviced at a local facility, both are businesses that I could invite out to meet my team.
  • Work through this exercise, we're sure you'll come up with two names.
