The 3 Pillars of Preparation

Over the last 2.5 years, I have helped well over 2,000 Financial Advisers, Stockbrokers, and Licensed Accountants prepare for the FASEA Exam.  The exam has been the toughest professional hurdle they have had to overcome.  A key for the success of many Advisers has been the 3 Pillars of Preparation:

1. Knowledge – know the core content; not as an expert, but enough to apply in scenarios
2. Practice – continue to practice exam questions so you “stay in the zone”
3. Mindset – contrtol, persistance, & focus; know what is within your control & what is not

Preparing for the exam has reinforced for many Advisers just how much they actually know, and the value they create for their clients.
