Financial Advisor Success: Goal Setting with a Business Plan
One of the biggest mistakes financial advisors make is not having a Business Plan with detailed goals for growth. They are too busy working in the practice doing the day to day activities of running a practice that they forget to stand back, look at the big picture, and plan their business success. They're too busy trying to drum up business to really think about a targeted approach to planning the success of their financial advisory practice.
Hello, I am Suzanne Muusers, Business Coach for Financial Advisors.
In my experience, only one in ninety-nine financial advisors has a plan. Many think they don't need one, but I can assure you they do. Managing your practice without a plan is like sailing the Pacific Ocean without a map. This article will teach you four crucial success factors when planning for success and then show you an easy way to create a plan.
First – Who are you aiming to reach?
The "shoot first ask questions later" approach to business marketing has never been particularly successful when it comes to finding out who you work best with. If you market to everyone and anyone you really market to no one. Your marketing success will be more likely if you decide to select a profitable group of people to send your marketing message. This is your Target Market. My rule is that you can effectively target up to three niche markets.
Second – What is your Promise?
What will your clients get from working with you? What is the promise you are making to them? In one to two sentences, figure out the benefit your client will receive from hiring you. This statement should be featured on your website and in your waiting room and should motivate clients to work with you. This is your Mission Statement.
Third – What do you want to accomplish?
We all want more success in our lives, but few of us actually have written goals regarding what we want out of life or business. How much income do you want annually? How many new clients do you want this month, next month, and this year? What product or service deliverables do you need to create this year? These are your Meaningful Goals.
Think very carefully about what you want to create for your practice. Do you want to stay stuck at less than your potenital or do you want to shoot for the moon and land there? While figuring this out, ask yourself if you're willing to do the work that comes along with big goals.
Fourth – What will you do to get new business?
How are you going to attract new clients in droves? What techniques will you utilize to snare new business? An organized approach is best with four to eight tactics that work well together. In writing this section, decide where your target client hangs out. Do they have a professional organization? Where can you network or be a featured speaker? These are your marketing activities.

WHY was this program created?
My name is Suzanne Muusers. I'm an ICF-Member Business Coach for Financial Advisors. I have been coaching successful advisors since 2004. I found that my clients were reluctant to complete the typical thirty-plus page plan, so I developed this two page program with sample plans based on various advisor business models. Advisors can quickly pinpoint the strategies and activities needed to grow their practice. This program contains everything I have learned from coaching successful advisors for many years.
"Before using this Plan, I spent unfocused time on activities that made me feel busy. Now I have detailed goals that are firmly entrenched in my mind and I use the daily planner to take focused action. I get out of the office and meet with prospects in a focused strategic manner rather than burying myself in my practice. This has lead to bringing in more assets under management which allowed me to hire additional staff."
