Navigating Succession Planning, Fellowship, and Teamwork Ft. Chase Crump and Dany Martin (Ep. 5)

Navigating Succession Planning, Fellowship, and Teamwork Ft. Chase Crump and Dany Martin (Ep. 5)

Success is going to be built off of the things that you put into it.”

This week we are psyched to have two WFA Partners and Wealth Advisors on the Disruption Blueprint podcast: Chase Crump, CFP®, and Dany L. Martin, MBA. You might recall Dany L. Martin, MBA from Disruption Blueprint Episode 3 and Chase Crump, CFP® on Episode 4.

WFA has 96 cumulative years of trusted advisor experience and 134+ cumulative years of administrative experience. We shake things up in this episode and flip a few chapters back to discuss the history of WFA, thoughtful and intentional succession planning, and intentionality around valuation. “Success is going to be built off of the things that you put into it,” says Dany.

Too many people don’t have a vision for the future. They have no plan, no direction, and no way to reach their goals. “As a younger advisor, you don’t have to wait for the retiree to show up and try to sell their business,” Dany says. “Go in there and just bring it up.”

We learn how WFA strategized succession planning in a multifaceted way. They thought about how the clients are going to be cared for and what the transition would be like. They considered the extension of mission vision values, branding, and communication as a team.

It’s all about “taking a step back and realizing it’s not about just you, it’s about clients,” says Chase, which circles back to the WFA motto of Plan. Invest. Inspire. WFA seeks to plant the financial seed, water it with equal parts caring and knowledge, and then watch it grow.

There is so much awesome information in this episode, we know you’re going to get fired up! Make sure to listen to this empowering Disruption Blueprint episode with Chase Crump, CFP® and Dany L.
