Become a meeting junkie!

One of my first mentors was great guy, who in his two previous careers (before becoming the chairman of a brokerage firm) was a Commander in the Navy and then a surety bond (read risk) underwriter.

He knew little of the business when he began.  He took me aside and said “You need to go to ALL the meetings.  You may not realize you are learning anything but over time you will learn a lot”!

Ok? This guy has money and success so I listened.  Of course I could not travel so I went to every local club meeting I could. ( and most were free) The financial planning meetings, the stockbrokers club, the company presentations, the CFA society as a guest etc.  Boy, was he ever right.

I attended lots and lots of meetings in the early days and yes, I actually did eventually learn some things.

Guide – Presentations are not a waste of time.

Action Item – Go to local meetings and learn stuff!
