In episode 159 Steph is co-hosting with Nikki Miller! We’ve got some great questions and requests from our audience this week, so please join us! A huge thanks to Travel Planners International – they are our generous sponsors for this episode! 

1. Hi! I’m just starting out and plan to use the summer to find new clients. What are some of the most effective ways you’ve seen new advisors find clients? I work a FT job and have kids that are involved in school activities (choir, softball, track). — Anonymous

2. What are the pros and cons to leads programs? I feel like signing with a host agency that offers a lead program would be beneficial, especially when just starting out. Finding clients is intimidating to me, anyone else?! —Megan W.

3. I have a client who has changed her mind and completely changed her destinations like six times in three days. Each change has cost me hours of work. Any advice? —Michael C.
