The exciting end of the curve is the last double, the second to last double and the last double. So what are we supposed to do? Which is a different skillset in a fun, amazing, but different-". Carl Richards: 36:47 And then the third game to play is everything that comes out of your mouth after the first five minutes, everything that comes out of your mouth has to end in a question mark. How much did you listen in your last meeting with a prospect? We don’t have a great system here other than trying to give more as we earn more. Like what do I want?

I mean to me, it feels like my job is to help advisors figure out how to communicate to humans. ; Institutions We’re proud to provide financial … iTunes|Stitcher|Spotify. It's my go to. We don’t yet have any 529 accounts for our kids. So let's talk about sharing because we got two things. Welcome to The Model FA podcast, my name is Patrick Brewer, I'll be your host. And what was crazy was there were people at big, bad brokers firms that I would send my mother to, right? It's just no one cares. So you can get all that there and then of course that's what we really try to do. I will be THRILLED to be wrong for ever considering this as a factor, but, part of having a smaller home is us knowing we don’t want to be in a position where our home accounts for a huge portion of our net worth. So let's get really specific. We are at 90% stocks and 10% bonds across our investments. He is a Certified Financial PlannerTM, the creator of The Behavior Gap, and has been the Sketch Guy columnist for the New York Times since 2010. So from your perspective, actually let me just share something real quick because I don't know if you can relate to this at all. I was able to launch my business, Deliberate Finances, because of this. Nobody cares and the other thing I'll just add this and I'm going to let you finish is, what I've see is most people care about themselves so they have their own Mr Burns that they're dealing with almost all the time so they're not really caring about you and your content as much as you might think. Like they could hold their own in 95% of all conversations. Patrick Brewer: 06:54 I'm talking to the people and the people are telling me this. Like they've got a journal, who knew? Carl Richards: 48:48 It’s been a little tricky given my income varies not only from month to month, but also has been on a U shape over the past 5 years. But, having broad diversification is something I’ll never want to change. Right, right, right. In 2020, which was our highest income year ever (yes I know how rare that is and how far that is from the experiences of many in 2020. Key priorities for us are flexibility, time with family and friends, and traveling/experiences. I’ll continually update this list as others write their own versions. I mean, I probably shouldn't keep saying, it's not very complex, it's really simple. It's a webinar and it's going to show you how to add two to three plus new clients to your practice with consistency and in some cases, without even spending any money. So we've acknowledged that there's this problem. We've got megabehemouth advisory firms let's say that are spending money brainwashing the public, trying to get them to think that we're all terrible humans which in certain cases we can't really refute that. Carl Richards: 35:50 The crazy part about this is it's pretty simple not to be confused with easy, right? Elijah at the Ferry Building in San Francisco, with the Bay Bridge behind. Our 3 year old has been on maybe fifteen airplane trips, and that includes 2020 being a year with no flights. Every one of those events (and plenty of others) changed how we earn, save, and spend money. Carl Richards: 44:29 That's fine. So what do you think the hesitation it there for the expert advisor who should be doing a lot of these things? Patrick Brewer: 17:51 That's what I think about my work, that's what I want to be doing. We were at FPA Retreat, I think they still do those, the sort of smaller venue FPA conference where you had a chance to get in groups and talk and as I recall, Michael Kitces, Tim Mower and I were on a panel and I was feeling particularly frustrated, I've only gotten more grumpy about this subject so this is going to be super fun to talk about. Over the last 5 years (2016-2020), we’ve had the following life changes: I changed careers, we bought a new house, Stephanie changed schools she teaches at, sold the old house after realizing we hated being landlords, I launched my financial planning business, had our first kid, Stephanie started her Master’s degree, had our 2nd kid, and now Stephanie has finished her Master’s degree. Patrick Brewer: 33:52 Now the second part of your question, where do you go? Like what percentage of advisors are even open to learning a new style of communication? In terms of what I think is happening is that it's just such an interesting paradox right now. 4x? Working in HR revealed a lot about the financial lives of employees, and the lightbulb went off: Too many smart and talented people feel overwhelmed with finances, always wondering if they're making mistakes. And then I get to speak for this little subset of the industry called professionals and I say, "Look they're here. They remind me of when I got in the business, they remind me of the 55 year old stock broker that, I started at Merrill Lynch, this 55 year old stock broker who still thought his value was access to information and transactions and was still cold calling. So it's like you can't come up with a checklist that out of the bottom falls trustworthy. The major changes will never end, though I would think the pace may at least slow down in the coming years. Not high. It means we’re able to consider problems like “Did we save enough this year?” or “Do we want a bigger/nicer house or do we want to put thousands of dollars per year towards travel?” and “Which types of investment accounts should we prioritize?” These are not problems most people ever get to debate. We went from having under 26 years remaining out to having a 30 year mortgage again. And you know, he's able to milk that out until he was 62 and retired, fine. I mean we talked a lot about the industry, talking about the concept of finding these advisors that want to offer real financial advice potentially helping them get to the consumer market, are you thinking that you can be the bridge and the megaphone to help advisors that fall into this cohort meet more consumers, grow their business?

Like a human will say, "Hey, I need an advisor." In fact I want to be clear, it's actually in spite of it.

Like the reason you're bad at this, and by bad at this I just mean like, having empathetic conversations with clients, like I used to have a goal that with prospective clients in the first meeting that somebody was going to cry and it wasn't going to be me and that was kind of a tongue in cheek goal but it sort of set my mindset. Carl Richards: 25:51 Let me give you another timely example that everybody listening to this is having happen to them, people are calling you and asking you about... insert financial pornography news event of the day.

I hope you like it." Carl Richards: 52:47 So anyway, that's all I'm going to say about that. So once we get there and we realize like, "You said those are often really good reasons but we will do anything like..." Steven Pressfield named it The Resistance, Seth has talked a lot about Steven's work and also about the lizard brain. I was actually just surprised at how few advisors who fall into that cohort that let's say you and I are somewhat agreeing on right now or wanting to join our company. Now there's things like what you do that can be rocket fuel to propel you through that but you still can't skip it. We did that back on March 13, 2020, maxing out one ROTH account for the year when the markets were in free fall. Like I'm purposefully building structures in my life to leave me at the appropriate intervals because you've got to rest between this, you can't be scared your whole life or else you'll die but at the appropriate intervals which is multiple times a week, to be scared and I've just changed that dynamic. No one else does it the way you do it, like the quote unquote right way and I'm just talking about being empathetic and passionate and build, and by the way all those soft skills have to be on top of an absolute technical rockstar, right? And so how long does it take and what do you do? I'm going to use this term really broadly. What strategies have you used to overcome the imposter syndrome? And that's why I've been so... gone to such lengths in this conversation to point out like, "Yes.". He showed up at my wedding, he showed up at the birth of my first child, he showed... every time I enter a mountain bike race, every river I kayak.

An actual shoebox full of statements and legal documents and trusts and will and it's like, four weeks after her husband's passing and she got referred to me and she brings this shoebox in and what I want to see more of, because I think what happens in most financial advisor offices when Maxine walks in... is and this could be 32 year old that just sold a business and is totally overwhelmed with the complexity, this could be single dad suddenly having to deal with the fact that his wife just passed away and he's got a big pool of life insurance money. Carl Richards: 03:48 Patrick Brewer: 42:36 Carl Richards Note: This piece was inspired by the book, “ How I Invest my Money ”, which itself was born out of a blog post of the same title by Josh Brown. Patrick Brewer: 24:37 And you grew up in that and many of the people listening to this are, and what I want to say that group like preaching to the choir like please don't forget how valuable... You live in fantasy land, the way you do things, you think everybody else does things this way, no they don't. Carl Richards: 37:34 We dollar cost average into all the accounts, on a few different days throughout the month. Yes, super good. And then if the next one, you're up to like a half of the meeting is more on life values, goals, and less on performance and reporting. Where do you think the industry is going from a, I guess, in general? Patrick Brewer: 09:27 You're a dead person. Patrick Brewer: 26:26 Yeah, nothing's easy, nothing's short so... Carl Richards: 26:29 In addition, Carl has become a frequent keynote speaker at financial planning … So anyway, those are the three. In our finances, we want to prioritize flexibility/security, family, and traveling/experiences. To pretend there’s no chance of us losing our home to a storm would be ignoring reality. And you can't look up in the Yellow Pages or type in the Google machine real financial advisors. But that’s just a guess. Today I have Carl Richards who really requires no introduction. Our investments are all “passive” (though nothing is actually passive) and use low cost, broad index funds. I mean those three things alone will allow you to shorten the curve if you're willing to accept the advice. And so that's where I think the industry is going, is you're either going to be sort of roboed out of business. What do you think got you so passionate about it? I appreciate the ease of use and knowing all the rebalancing, tax loss harvesting, and asset location is being done for us. I worked as a teacher and as a school administrator overseeing HR before becoming a fee-only financial planner. So first we've got to make an assumption and we'll just make this assumption, if we have time we can circle back to the first part which is you've got to give them a remarkable experience. I'd go, "Great, what do I need? Carl Richards: 18:20 ), Tennessee (3x? Carl Richards: 03:37 There's this secret society of real financial advisors literally saving marriages and people's health and all of that and nobody believes they exist.

All Rights Reserved, This is a BETA experience. Carl Richards: 12:16 So how do you feel the advisor should be structured in that situation? Carl Richards: 10:08 Sophia Bera, you can do it. We did a lot more of those things this year than previously, and want to make that sort of direct giving more consistent in the future. Don’t miss one of our favorite moments, when Carl shares the story of a client explaining why they chose their Fiduciary Advisor: “Because of the way you made us feel.” When was the last time you connected with you clients on such a deep level? Carl Richards: 11:48 And then you can point your friends to it. While that 10% in bonds may not be doing much for us right now, it’s nice to know even when times are bad, our investments will be slightly less bad than headlines are screaming. Was it gradual that it kind of built up over time? So how-. Yes, small goals. We recently made the decision to start prioritizing ROTH accounts instead of pretax, and have shifted the bulk of our savings moving forward to going into ROTH accounts. The exact opposite happened. I mean, I want to be super careful to not be self serving but that's the question I get asked more than any other question from big firms and training and education people and conference organizers is like, we don't know anybody who's teaching advisors how to talk to humans. Yeah, like I know the work you do is going to help them so the people do see it but the reality is even with the work you do-. Carl Richards: 27:38 Now I never got there, it's just sort of a goal to pull you because I bet right now, I bet there's plenty of advisors that are like, "Oh yeah, yeah. Like you should literally have a bell that goes off in your head and you go, "Oh. And I kind of experienced the same thing. Like boringly flat. I think you just practice. Like we and I think it's so simple that I am confident that even among your listeners who are rock stars, I don't know what the number is but most of them won't do it because it's so simple. I started my business just a few months before our son was born, so needless to say, this wasn’t high on our radar given my drop in income. And too many people who want help are taken advantage of or shut out by large financial institutions. Like I've seen some really successful advisory firms or practices that have somebody who's really, really good at the technical piece but they don't really know how to talk to humans. And more importantly, the work I was seeing my friends and colleagues in the industry doing and so on one hand I was seeing that. Patrick Brewer: 24:02 What they need is for us to say, "Hey, I've got you. Do you do that in a small team? In fact, I just had this great email from a woman who's at UVU, Utah Valley University's got the largest financial planning program in the country now and she was getting ready to quit because she's like, "I didn't realize I was just going to be selling annuities and life insurance.". We didn’t exactly catch the bottom, which happened March 23, but it’s still worked out pretty well (so far). Patrick Brewer: 18:42 Okay, yeah. He aways shows up." The problem is you don't know where they are. Can I write a book?" We paid for Stephanie (my wife) to get a Master’s degree, without taking on student loan debt. Gross that up for expenses that you think you'll have and then say, "All right. Maxine comes in and we could flip this script by the way, the husband comes in, fine. So we can dive in more to what it is and what it looks like, but that's kind of the genesis of the idea behind it. So somebody comes in, if I were giving and training right now, I think the first meeting is the golf swing of our business. Patrick Brewer: 09:21 Yeah, that was going to be my follow up question. 10 000? Look forward to seeing you there. Episode 1: Carl Richards 06.14.19 | 0 Launch Scale Transform My guest today is Carl Richards.He is a Certified Financial Planner TM, the creator of The Behavior Gap, and has been the Sketch Guy … It so happens right now there's a high perceived value on this and for me it's a relatively low cost, I've found for most advisors it's a pretty high cost, it's hard. So 100% on board with that and we've seen tons of advisors inside of our program that have done just that. How would you like to proceed? The data is just overwhelming that the bulk of investors cost themselves money trying to be a stock picker. Carl Richards is a Certified Financial Planner™ and creator of the Sketch Guy column, appearing weekly in the New York Times since 2010. There are examples in the financial space that would make those claims feel like reality. Carl Richards: 24:53 But I sometimes get accused of like, "Well wait, isn't the technical stuff important?" So I mean I think that's fantastic advice. Patrick Brewer: 46:18 Like that's part, but then there's the temptation to go, "Well, if no one's going to see it, why should I do it?" She was out and like, "Whoa, this is different than what I was taught at school and they're saying I'm out," or they'll run across something where they'll finally go, "Oh wait, there's a better way." More importantly is that I just want to be done with the taxes and know the balance is the balance. And so that's where the work we've done around-, Carl Richards: 45:31 Patrick Brewer: 03:34 The kids bedrooms will be small. Then please just talk about that experience in a form that makes it easy to share.

Eric Thayer for The New York Times. Yeah. I think that's it and you know, those stickers on the back of a Jeep, you've probably seen these in Texas that say, "You wouldn't understand, it's a Jeep thing." I don't mean ranting, I mean like, "Please." I can’t say we never will, but we have no plans to. Just because you haven't met one, doesn't mean they don't exist. We also have a lovely neighborhood, great neighbors, and a yard big enough for the dog to tucker herself out chasing back and forth from fence to fence. This is the only variant to dollar cost averaging we’ll do. Carl Richards: 31:26 Like, writing a little bit about it, talking about it in a way that somebody goes, "Oh, yeah, that," because it's bit like the Supreme Court's definition of pornography. So the work that those people have been doing and you know, Dick Wagner and that whole crew, Marty Kurtz, that whole crew of hardcore financial planners that have been around a long time. I mean, a lot of guys come in and they're not to that point where they've fully defined the vision and I'm sure you've helped a lot of folks with this too but you get them to the point where it's like, "Okay, we're going to focus on associate attorneys, we just need 100 of them across the country with this set of problems. You can find a way to say, "A friend asked me at lunch this question, and we had this conversation. Carl Richards: 25:01 by Carl Richards / The Sketch Guy. Carl Richards: 45:15 Carl Richards: 24:21 This is way early on, this is the beginning of the Behavior Gap, they come in super good clients, good friends of mine, they cried in my office. Yeah, yeah.

How to Judge a Financial Planner. At 2.875%, freeing up cashflow to put towards investments is likely to be a better long term bet, or at least that’s what spreadsheets say. Carl Richards: 39:03 It's like, "Oh my goodness, I'm going to be able to get my message out there and I'm going to be able to do it in a way that isn't awkward, pushy or sales-y and I'm going to get more clients and have this massive impact where more people are going to have access to this type of advice. I don't have all the answers, I don't know what the future looks like, I'm going to plot the future for you as sort of a guess and that's cool. We made somewhere around 3-4x the median household income for Orleans Parish, where we live. I think I have about five advisors that have come through that channel, like the more formally trained, larger, mid-sized DFA Vanguard affiliated firms. In fact, I would almost encourage you not to and so let's just talk about what that could look like, right? We're going to attract them in this way. Like, you... You just hide behind the compliance stuff. We’ve spent plenty of time debating this topic over the years and always come down on that we’re not willing to give up our location and outdoor space for a bigger or fancier house.
