February 07, 2024

True fulfillment comes from creating meaningful experiences and positively impacting those around us, either in your career or your retirement.

Recently, Brittany Anderson, Partner at Sweet Financial sat down with Jacob Hartke, CRPC® to discuss the value of time management.

Jacob shares how his transition from an intern to a client-facing role has helped build upon his passion for building deep, meaningful relationships with clients. Listen as he and Brittany explore how dreaming big varies for each individual and the importance of focusing on one’s purpose rather than getting bogged down by the “how.”

  • Jacob’s journey from aspiring lawyer to financial advisor–how defining his skills allowed him to find his perfect role
  • The value of embracing life’s changes when pursuing your aspirations
  • The role of time management in the advising industry and the transition into retirement
  • The evolution of “dreaming big” & why you need to define it at every stage of life
  • And more
