Come hear a personal collection of powerful stories about being in this industry and how the advisors' practices have been impacted (positively and negatively) by their health.
We can do better as an industry. It starts with seeing your health as an asset to grow and protect and then moves into personal responsibility and finally, industry/firm responsibility.
One advisor said that she's "mortgaged her health for her career" and is determined to earn it back so she has the staying power in the industry.
Another advisor said, "I had all kinds of scary diagnoses one year, and it was attributed to the stress of the volatility of this industry. Can this career be professionally fulfilling? YES. Can it really provide unlimited income? YES. Do you potentially pay the highest price for it? YES!! Please help me, help my advisors.”
