I was recently looking for new music to add to my playlists, and I saw this song at the top of the iTunes chart and not only did I like the sound of it, but while listening to it, I realized that it pretty much describes my job.
Oh I think that I found myself a cheerleader
She is always right there when I need her
I’m a Cheerleader for My Clients
I have said this in the past, but I think that the greatest service I give to my clients is to be their cheerleader on their financial journeys. I get phone calls, emails and texts all the time from my clients updating me on the various changes they are making with their money, and I always respond with positivity and encouragement.
Financial updates are common to me now, but sometimes I wonder who else would celebrate the refund of a bank fee or a 60-point increase in a credit score. Who would give you a virtual high five for calling your cable provider and getting your monthly bill lowered?
These financial events may seem small to other people, but I understand the importance of them in the context of my client’s lives. I understand that every step in the right direction financially is going to lead to better things for my clients, and when you are on a long journey, you need to celebrate every victory no matter how small along the way.
No one is more excited for my client’s success than me, and I really do feel like their cheerleader on the sidelines cheering them on even when they have setbacks. I feel honored that they trust me to be a part of their journey and from the moment we start working together, I am in their corner supporting them with positivity.
I am a cheerleader for my clients, and I am fortunate to have my own cheerleader as well, my hubby. Bill and I met on match.com 13 years ago, and our time together has not always been smooth and it has not always been fun, but since the day I met him, Bill has always been my biggest cheerleader.
With every step of my career, Bill has supported and encouraged me. He is probably the only person I know who has read every blog post I have ever written, he edits and listens to my podcasts, he frequently watches our son on evenings and weekends so I can meet with clients, and he’s always ready with a cocktail for me after a long and trying day.
There have been many days over the last two years as I have built my practice where I questioned my decision and thought about giving up; and every time I hit a bad place, Bill cheered for me even louder. Bill’s encouragement and positivity in times of doubt for me are exactly what I need to keep me going, and this is exactly what I do for my clients.
Cheerleaders Make Us Successful
I am in the process of raising money to grow my business, and through this process I have reviewed a number of my client profiles to share with potential investors; and while working on this, I realized that 90% of my clients achieve their financial goals. The overachiever in me would like it to be 100%; however, I know that a 90% success rate is incredible, and I really do feel that my presence and positivity play a large part in my client’s successes.
I know that I am a success in my business and with my financial goals because I have my hubby as a cheerleader. Cheerleaders do make a difference in our lives, and it’s important to have them. I encourage you to act as a cheerleader for others, especially loved ones, and if you don’t have a cheerleader in your life, send me and email and let me know, and I will be that person for you. I have positivity to spare!
