Emlen & Dasarte Going Independent

Just as we’re celebrating our independence as a nation– maybe it’s also time for you to consider becoming an independent financial advisor! As we progress in the industry, there’s always going to be a part of us that wants independence in some way, shape, or form to create our own individual journeys.

In this episode, long-time recurring guest Dasarte and I talk about how you can achieve this independence, and you need to avoid making the same common mistakes among all financial advisors.

Find your why, and draw your path as you listen in on our conversation! 


>> How Dasarte knew he was ready to go independent

>> Common mistakes people make when going independent

>> How Dasarte recenters himself when things are difficult

>> Don’t be scared of grit and grind, but also defend your time

>> Everything you learn at this moment is to be better than the last
