3 Dimensions of Growth with Aspirational ValueHomer Smith CFP, CRPC, BFA, CBEC is a thought-leading Advisor out in Seattle. In this video, Homer and CoreValue's George Sandmann have an informal conversation about using the '3 Dimensions of Business GrowthTM' in client engagements (click image to magnify; back to close).


Homer's company Konvergent Wealth Partners is a forward-thinking RIA focusing heavily on business-owning clients.  Homer is an active member of the IGEPA, to whom we refer pros for growth and exit planning education. 

Homer is passionate about working with his company's network of CPA firms to help clients reach their long-term wealth goals. Homer is using CoreValue to successfully start the conversation about strength and value in his client's largest asset - their privately owned business. For most of these clients, this asset will provide significant post-career/family wealth. Homer is an expert at showing clients the risks to the asset's equity value, and is using his planning skills to guide clients toward success.

When George unveiled the '3 Dimensions of Business Growth' methodology, the market's reaction was bananas. After reading the first article in the series, Homer called George to discuss.  The attached video is an out-take of these conversations. Here's an example of prioritizing growth and equity value drivers in line with the 3 Dimensions:
