Brent Hines, Co-founder, and Executive Director of the Foundation for Financial Wellness, Interviewed on the Influential Entrepreneurs Podcast

Brent Hines discusses Financial Wellness and how Financial Professionals can harness this movement to better serve their clients. 

Listen to the interview on the Business Innovators Radio Network:

Financial wellness is rooted in a methodology that focuses on a person’s total well-being. It brings together disciplines found in wellness, coaching, psychology, and most importantly, the behavioral sciences. In today’s complex economic environment, achieving and maintaining financial security can be difficult without taking proactive steps to improve one’s financial well-being. Financial wellness aims to help individuals manage their finances proactively so they can experience greater peace of mind and stability in all aspects of their lives.

Brent explained: “Financial professionals are now learning how to play a critical role in helping their clients achieve financial well-being by providing guidance and support through various strategies such as financial education, private counseling, and technology solutions. A well-trained financial professional looks, sounds, and acts more like a professional coach than a traditional financial advisor.”

Anyone in the financial industry has likely experienced how the financial wellness industry is growing fast and furious, often resembling a modern-day version of the wild west, as everyone seems to be using the term “Financial Wellness”, but not being consistent in what exactly it means. Candidly, far too many professionals in the financial world are simply using the term to try and pitch more of their products or services.

The Foundation for Financial Wellness is an advocate for the financial professional who is looking to establish a new standard level of excellence as a Financial Wellness Professional.
