We’re joined by two guests on today’s episode of Bridging The Gap. Dave Connolly, CEO and Co-Founder of Knudge, and Dr. Moira Summers, Financial Psychologist and Executive Coach, share how they help bridge the gap between financial motivations and systems that help clients reach their financial goals.
We explore procrastination, three steps of implementation for your clients, the shared responsibility of implementation, what works and what doesn’t work when it comes to helping your clients reach financial goals, and more.
We also dive into a conversation about how simple reminders from you as the advisor can have a huge impact on your clients’s financial journey.
