There are three things that are critical to perpetuate our business – satisfied clients, great employees, and a progressive business approach. Without satisfied clients, we do not exist as a firm. And because 85% of our business is repeat, we are laser focused on our clients’ requirements. Without great employees, we cannot develop the consultants and leaders essential to serve our clients and reach our financial goals. Providing an attractive shareholder return also helps us retain key personnel and motivates those who aspire to firm ownership.
