More About This Episode:
On today's episode, Allen Myles Darby, the CEO of Alaris Acquisitions joins us to share lessons he’s learned about balance as a wealth manager for over 3 decades. Starting off in insurance and eventually finding his way into financial management, Allen has had the opportunity to grow his experiences with mentors and peers in the industry.
For Allen, balance is about having his actions match his values in life. Similarly, he’s helping clients find their balance in business and beyond, aiding people in building businesses that support a good quality of life. As an advisor to advisors, he’s seen many advisors struggle with business operations. They may take great care of their clients, but they may not have the skills that elevate a business forward.
Advisors that run an effective business remove any dependency their business has on one person, even themselves. It’s frightening to give up this amount of control, but having an institutionalized business allows you, your staff, and your business to become greater than ever before.
