Transitioning business to the next generation can seem like an uphill battle, but reframing the transition makes stepping away and giving the next generation the room they need to grow, easier.

In this episode, Jamie Hopkins, Managing Partner of Wealth Solutions, and Ana Trujillo Limón, Director, Coaching and Advisor Content, speak with Executive Business Coach, Tammy Breitenbach, ACC, MBA about helping advisors through transitions.

Tammy discusses:

  • How her passion for communication led her to become an executive business coach
  • Some of the biggest challenges she sees advisors facing today
  • Why the first step to solving practice management challenges is to reframe the situation
  • How she challenges advisors who are planning their succession to step away and give the next generation of advisors the opportunity to take over in their place
  • Tips for advisors to help manage the personal part of taking a step back
  • Advice for advisors, to make blueprinting a successful process
  • How advisors can establish a better connection with the next generation of their clients’ families
