How Farm Bureau Prevents Financial Advisor Burnout
April 27, 2021
If you feel like stress is weighing you down in your role as a financial advisor, you could be heading toward career burnout. Don’t be discouraged! Being a financial advisor is a rewarding and fruitful career when you have the right support. Here’s how Farm Bureau gives financial advisors the advantage they need to find continued success and enjoyment in their business.
Good financial advisors know that you should never stop prospecting for new clients. This holds true no matter at what stage you are in your career. Great news for Farm Bureau Wealth Management Advisors: Farm Bureau simplifies the process by offering its advisors a built-in pipeline of prospects. Nearly 1,700 Farm Bureau agents across 14 states can connect advisors to 540,000 potential clients. This framework is a win-win for advisors and clients. It gives advisors a warm kitchen table invite to prospect Farm Bureau client/members who already trust the brand and it lets clients enjoy the benefit of having their assets and policies handled by one team.
Wealth Management Advisors can sometimes feel disconnected from their firm. Not at Farm Bureau. Our advisors are paired with a Regional Manager who delivers personalized, one-on-one leadership, coaching and mentorship. Whether it’s acting as a sounding board when you need problem-solving, providing feedback or career-pathing your business to help you achieve work-life balance, the Regional Managers are only a phone call away.
When you’re in the thick of it, adding one more thing to the calendar can feel like the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back. But consider this: Meaningful engagement with your community feels good. Volunteering for an organization or joining a local fundraiser for a cause you’re passionate about helps others and brings you a sense of fulfillment and well-being. It has its professional perks, too, such as expanding your reach in the community by connecting you more deeply with existing clients and fostering new relationships.
One big reason why advisors burn out? They get bogged down in operations and administration, making them forget what it is they love about their profession in the first place. However, Farm Bureau takes care of the behind-the-scenes aspects of your practice so that you can focus on what matters — helping clients and growing your business. From providing a turn-key office and staffing assistance to offering marketing support and the latest financial platforms and tech systems, our team has your back.
There is a misconception that being a financial advisor is synonymous with making a quick buck. Yes, this industry pays well for an advisor’s success, but aiming for the fast paycheck not only wears you out, it’s also not sustainable. And it hurts your business in the long-term. Farm Bureau’s approach is to guide you on a path of steady growth that can last for decades.
