Ep 26: Accomplishing Professional Balance with Broc Buckles
Updated: Mar 22
How often do you immediately wake up and check your email?
It happens to all of us, but by doing this are we missing out on starting our day off in a positive way?
Ep 26: Accomplishing Professional Balance with Broc On today’s episode, Broc Buckles, the co-founder of BC brokerage, joins us to discuss his journey through the insurance industry and how he has come to define balance in his own life.
Like many of us, early on in his career, Broc didn’t have a definition of balance. It was about working, networking, and excelling as hard as he could so he could have balance one day in the future. But now, Broc sees balance in a new light, where he has clarity in all aspects of life.
As an insurance broker that works closely with advisors and other financial professional’s he’s seen the struggles others face first hand. Broc highlights the struggle advisors face maintaining balance within the professional world, not just in their personal lives. Many business owners find themselves not only advisors, but also content creators, working in client management, and playing various other roles as they grow their business. We’ll never achieve personal balance if we can’t balance our work life. For the most part, Broc doesn’t want advisors to start the day with something professional. Don’t check your email as soon as you wake up. The way you start your day is going to impact your mood and energy.
Unfortunately, we cannot be a master in all things. You might be a great financial planner, but that doesn’t mean you’ll be a great insurance agent or investment manager. Broc is helping advisors elevate their services and offer more robust planning to their clients, while still maintaining balance within their professional lives. Join us today as we further discuss:
