I’m in San Diego this week, attending two different financial conferences. I’ve just finished attending the first, the XY Planning Network Conference, which was attended by over 300 twenty and thirty somethings, all of whom are either building or soon-to-be building their own financial planning firms.
As a veteran of the financial planning industry I was so glad I attended this conference to see first hand how ambitious, passionate and heart-centered these young planners are. They truly care about serving millennials by helping these younger clients make better financial decisions and lead better lives.
It is so heartwarming to see the passion and enthusiasm in our next generation of financial planners.
Tomorrow I attend a second conference, FinCon, that brings over 1200 financial influencers together — writers, bloggers, and podcasters who help people gain financial literacy in one way or another. They are another group of heart-centered individuals that are trying to help people lead better lives.
When I made the decision to attend these conferences I made a great investment in my business that will benefit my clients over and over again.
It’s a true honor to be part of both of these groups of people. I always learn a lot from those I meet. We share best practices and learn from each other, and from the magnificent speakers that are here.
All of these people are truly making a difference in the world. The future of financial planning is very bright indeed!
