On today’s episode, Gabriel Shahin a CFP, founder of Falcon Wealth, and radio show host joins us to explore his career and how he’s found balance as a professional. Starting in 2003 within national banks, Gabriel has found his passion early on working with clients but struggled to find a culture that he valued.

Gabriel views balance as prioritizing your focus. There are two worlds: the work world and family world and you have to learn to appreciate both of them. If you don’t have a passion for your work, burn-out is high.
Finding your happy zone and being able to communicate effectively with your family is a huge factor in finding balance. Learning to be self-aware when you’re outside of work is essential. Building a team, you can trust and delegate to is part of growing your business and finding balance within life. You can’t buy time back.
