In this episode, I talk to Brian Ruff - an independent financial advisor that I hired in 2013 to help me with my own practice. We talk about his start in the business, what lead him to going independent and what our agreement looks like today. 

In this episode you will learn:

  • What hiring a junior broker looks like when you're independent
  • How you might link up with other advisors that might need help growing their business
  • How to be awesome....(obviously)
