In Episode #03 of NAPFA Nation, Elizabeth Jetton, CFP®, shares thoughts on using mindful conversation to build trust and create engagement. Jetton has been a thought leader in the financial planning profession for the past 20 years. She has been in the financial services industry since 1981, a CFP® professional since 1991, and served as President of The Financial Planning Association in 2004. In 2010, she retired from her financial planning practice to focus on consulting to financial planning firms and teaching. Today she helps advisors and firms build thriving client-centered practices, processes, services and deliverables. She is on the faculty of Golden Gate University where she teaches Personal Financial Planning – a role she began in 2015.
Jetton tells us:
Key points: Model what’s possible. Sometimes life has its own agenda; the path is not always linear or clear. Just keep walking in the direction that feels right – and as you walk through what may feel like a foggy landscape, watch for and be open to serendipitous surprises. Keep showing up and consider that happenstance can be a good thing. As we move through the seasons of our careers, continue planting seeds; sometimes the seeds may look dormant and we don’t get to see anything but the roots are forming. Find authentic ways to express who you are in the world – and who you are for others. Do your own work as a practitioner. Stay open, curious and humble.
Special Note: In 2023, we rebranded the NAPFA podcast with a new album cover and series title: NAPFA Nation. We are shifting our monthly episodes to bring you inspiring conversations and key insights from leaders in the Fee-Only financial planning profession.
