Jessica’s passion is partnering with firm owners to discover the gap between their current situation and their desired success, then working with them to implement strategies that help them reach their firm’s full potential. A strong advocate of the importance of goal setting and process-based businesses, she sees the timeless concepts outlined in Tested in the Trenches paired with executive coaching as a powerful way already-successful advisors can increase their IQ (Implementation Quotient) and break through plateaus.
