One of the core values of working with a financial advisor is having an objective and dispassionate guide to help a client achieve their goals. Our financial lives are fraught with emotional entanglements that can make even the most level-headed person get a little squirrelly and make less than optimal decisions.
Brooklyn Brock noticed that even financial advisors are not immune to this challenge and in early 2020 she founded Ellevate Advisors to help RIAs and independent financial advisors with their financial and exit planning needs.
Listen to my conversation with Brooklyn about how she created a financial advisory firm that serves other financial advisors on The Modern Financial Advisor Podcast.
