Into the Great Wide Open was the eight studio album recorded by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers in 1991. The title track follows Eddie as he embarks upon a music career in Hollywood. Although perhaps a reach, there are several similarities between the protagonist of the song and the protagonists of the independent advisor movement. First and foremost, the future is wide open, the sky is the limit, and there is often a sense of rebellion. On today’s episode, I am joined by Chuck Cooper, co-founder and Managing Partner of StrongBox Wealth in Lee’s Summit, Missouri and two of my colleagues, Jason Pinkham, co-founder and Managing Director at Dynasty Financial Partners and Caitlin Douglas, a Vice President and top transition specialist at Dynasty. We will be discussing the transition process from a traditional financial institution into the independent space. The perspective will be from the team responsible for all of the planning and execution of the move.
