Ep 111: More Than Money Management: Building Meaningful Client Relationships with Chris Stallings
More About This Episode:
Today we are joined by Chris Stallings, the CEO, and founder of Abundance LLC. Chris has pioneered a whole-person, whole-family approach to wealth management that goes far beyond traditional financial planning. Drawing on his own family's experience with an advisor who failed to address their legacy concerns, Chris is passionate about helping his clients plan for longevity, navigate unexpected crises, and make major life decisions that extend far beyond their finances.
Chris believes that his purpose as a financial advisor stems much deeper than finances. By centering his business on the values of integrity, compassion, and genuine care for his clients, Chris has created a truly unique approach to wealth management.
In this episode, Chris shares his insights on the power of setting boundaries and honoring your schedule to stay present both at work and at home.
