More About This Episode:
On today’s episode, certified financial planner and Managing Partner at IAG, Christopher Mitchell joins us to discuss his mission of helping families reach financial independence while navigating his own journey to find balance.
Chris knew early on that he wanted to be involved in finances and business. Early in his career, he saw advisors struggling with large workloads and burnout. He realized he would need to learn the skills of advising in a slow and steady manner that allowed him to succeed but also avoid the burnout trap.
Learning from the mistakes we see in the industry can help us elevate work-life balance in a new way. For Chris, the key to balance was learning from others and avoiding the mistakes he saw throughout the industry. With every new generation of advisors, Chris hopes balance becomes more common.
