More often than not, advisors may have an idea of what they want their business to look like, but at the end of the day they don’t end up taking the steps that will get them there.
So what are the most common motivators to start making big changes to your business? There are several reasons we see quite often: compliance, health, staffing, or other business or personal issues that simply must be addressed by making definitive changes.
But the most common theme among most advisors who choose to make big changes is that they feel like they’re spending too much of their valuable time on various non-revenue-producing activities, which is taking them away from the work that they’re better at, and enjoy more. They feel they just don’t have enough time to spend on their clients, family, business growth, motivating staff, and/or professional development. This extreme dissatisfaction can be a real motivator for change.
While every advisor we work with is unique, here are some common issues advisors who seek out our outsourcing services are experiencing:
Perhaps you share these or similar issues with the advisors we’ve supported through their journeys to a more efficient business model and independence. Today, these advisors, who have been able to successfully built out their new businesses while choosing to outsource their back office activities, now enjoy many significantly positive end results.
Advisors who choose to outsource are often able to successfully move from one business model they weren’t satisfied with, to the (often more independent) practice they were seeking, working fewer and better hours, focusing mainly on financial planning and meeting with clients they truly enjoy—the things that drew them to this line of work in the first place. At the same time they’re able to maintain highly successful and profitable businesses.
And as advisors move away from a scenario they no longer feel works for them, they often become re-energized and excited about their businesses again. Those who are seeking more balance, time, and efficiency within their independent practice find that partnering with our virtual team and services has helped them to achieve those goals.

“In my first four years alone, with the right support structure and systems, I doubled my revenues and assets under management. My back office support systems have allowed me to reduce staff positions, simplify my practice, and avoid the additional costs that this expansion would have caused. There is no way that I could afford a high level research team on my own. I let the experts be the experts and I continue to provide client service with a personal touch. FocusPoint Solutions is completely invisible to my clients; I function as the quarterback.”
