LLR Ep 160: Empire Building Part Two: Connect Your Mission and Your Money to Your Team

Marissa is spilling the beans on crafting a stellar team, and you’re getting a front-row seat to the importance of defining roles, aligning goals, and setting expectations for individual team members.

In this episode of Live Life Rich, drawing on the lessons learned from Marissa’s 30 years in financial services, we’ll explore the five core values that are a non-negotiable part of our success – integrity, service, team, innovation, and hope.

You’ll see why clear instructions and expectations are important, but equally crucial is encouraging your team to take initiative and embrace tools to keep your team on the right path and enhance communication.

As leaders, fostering out-of-the-box thinking and diversifying our circle with thinkers who challenge our beliefs is essential. Marissa wraps up the episode by discussing the strategic importance of a 90-day success roadmap to achieve your business goals.
