Building a business is familiar territory to Sanders, who founded Sanders Financial Management in 1994 and shepherded its growth into a firm of 12 professionals.
“We work in a referral-driven business, so it is vital to include existing relationships in our marketing,” she says. “We’ve found working to develop deeper bonds with current clients and professionals who refer to your firm is a good business practice that is also an effective marketing strategy.”
Joining Sanders on the panel are Chris Dardaman, CPA, CFP, with Brightworth in Atlanta and Brian Carlton, CFP, LHIC with Huff, Stuart and Carlton in Forest, VA.
