This week, Financial Planner Life host Elena is joined by Bethany Lawton, Chartered Financial Planner at AV Trinity Ltd and Fellow of the Professional Finance Society. In this episode we focus heavily on personal development, perseverance in the face of adversity and achieving your career aspirations.
We look at Bethany’s career journey, from admin, to paraplanner being labelled as an admin, to finally being recognised for her capabilities within a firm that supported her continued progression.
In fact, progression is very much the name of the game in Bethany’s view, always looking for the next growth opportunity, qualification, or accolade in her career. Bethany talks us through her strong-willed mindset and the part it has played in pushing her forward.
Bethany has faced her fair share of adversity, entering the profession at a young age, being overlooked for promotion as a result of this, but this hasn’t stood a chance at holding her back!
We dive into changing the age and gender narrative in the Financial Planning profession, what companies and individuals can do to inspire the next generation, including the part that education and the school system plays in this.
If you’re an aspiring Financial Planning professional, or mid-career looking to excel beyond your limits, this episode will give you the inspiration you need to improve your mindset and achieve your career goals!
