Ep. 28: Shannon Spotswood’s Journey Towards Servant Leadership with Dr. Daniel Crosby

As independent financial advisors, RFG Advisory’s core values emphasize building a rapport with clients and providing a higher level of service to stand out in a crowded industry.

In this episode, Shannon Spotswood is interviewed by Dr. Daniel Crosby, the host of the Standard deviations Podcast. She shares her story of deviance by pivoting her career to join RFG, what RFG’s values are, and how other RIAs can address and prioritize their client’s needs by building a rapport and higher level of connection with them.

Shannon discusses:

  • What interested her in the finance world and how her career started
  • Why she pivoted from an investment fund analyst to a career in a more customer-oriented position at RFG
  • What RFG’s core values are and their selection process for building a team of A players
