Ron Bullis is the Co-Founder and CEO of Lifeworks Advisors, a modern Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) and technology firm striving to push the boundaries of wealth management. Lifeworks Advisors disrupts outdated business models and delivers personalized solutions to clients and advisors through their modern software platform. After working as a Wealth Management Advisor for almost a decade with Northwestern Mutual, Ron co-founded Lifeworks to help people simplify their financial lives, live “above the grind,” and focus on what matters most. In addition to his work with Lifeworks, Ron is also the President and Founder of The Ella Bullis Foundation, an organization dedicated to supporting families impacted by premature birth and infant loss.
Ron joins me today to discuss the keys to RIA growth through a solid client acquisition process. He shares his principles for building a team and explains why leaders shouldn’t only choose team players based on the revenue they can deliver for the business. He underscores the importance of cultivating relationships with clients based on trust and emphasizes why advisors need to deliver value beyond their clients’ assets. He also highlights how social media and digital platforms can bridge the most challenging gaps financial advisors face.
“One of the keys to building a business is creating a scalable and predictable client acquisition system.” - Ron Bullis
