Great business ideas for an FA

This is the first book I've bought through audible and I absolutely loved it. I listened to it in my car, at work during my breaks, and at home while relaxing. Supernova Advisor was filled with a lot of great information that can eliminate wasted time servicing clients who are not ideal for my business and focusing on clients I really like and who like me. It's a great example of quality over quantity.

Good book, slightly dated

Most of the illustrations and talk of technology firmly date this book to pre-2008, post 2001 mentalities and approaches to the business. The 100 client cap is getting more outdated, through more practices hiring paraplanners. Also, the book is very focused on one specific firm.

Regardless, there were some great nuggets in this book. But, it could use an update, or perhaps an additional section for folks outside of the Merrill world.

Independent Advisors Don't Bother

I purchase this book expecting some new ideas on how to improve my practice. The advice of Supernova is enough to move someone from a suitability standard salesperson to fiduciary advisor but is far from anything that would differentiate or put you above the competition. Overall it feels like a manual of the minimum to be expected from a competent advisor.

Like many business books, 20 minutes of content repeated a number of times

This audiobook falls in to the trap of taking a great idea, and padding needlessly to build pages. A 30 minute version would be of equal value, as the concept is sound.
