I decided to embark on this journey to learn more about finance as I particularly enjoy it. While learning and going through the training, my mentors shared with me how this business can directly impact someone’s life in what we do. After thinking for about 2 months, I decided to give this role a shot. I really like that it provides me with the freedom to explore different ways of growing my business, and it also helps me develop a high
sense of self-awareness towards the impact I can make on someone’s life.
Seeking personal and professional growth.
Beyond competency as a consultant, I really wanted to develop myself personally as well. I truly believe we are the average of the 5 people we hang out with. I knew I had to stay around individuals who are constantly pushing and stretching their potential, and it helps me challenge my goals to dream bigger. If your dreams do not scare you, you are not aiming big enough.
Taking charge of one’s life.
Being a financial consultant, I feel that I have gained clarity on how to take charge of my life. I have learned what it means to be accountable by shouldering responsibilities and knowing how to deal with difficult, impromptu situations. Most importantly, I’ve learned how to cultivate my mindset to fit into different situations, to not let success get into my head and to not let failure get into my heart.
Be transparent and authentic.
People will only truly trust you once you are able to show transparency and authenticity in your work ethic and your daily life. People are our source of business, and we need to win their trust in order to succeed.
