“How do you bridge that gap between one to two people, especially when you’re newer and doing it? And that’s where having automation, having smart messaging can help you out – to do more with less so a lot of people will have those smart messages that they send.” – Megan Brown
“Because the normal flow of things is people decide “okay, I’m ready to pull the trigger, I want to start investing,” and they’re going to maybe reach out there to people. And most of the time, they’re going to go with that first person that talks with them.” – Megan Brown
“So, there’s a million-and-one app out there, right? So, it’s about finding out what your need is, what are you trying to solve initially? And then what’s going to make your life easier.” – Chris Levarek
“So, it’s just about building that flow of something like that, and then executing on what you need to do in your role versus going and doing all those little pieces and you’re just flustered when you get to the call.” – Chris Levarek
