A trip to the Land of Milk & Honey… Dairy of a Financial Planner

Personal Finance is not an engaging subject – definitely not for our clients. But we keep bombarding them with articles, snippets, newsletters etc. on finance. Clients don’t even open emails after a point, as it is mind-numbingly boring. Suresh started writing non-finance blogs and has got an excellent response… he says clients love it. He writes trip diaries, travelogues, book reviews, movie reviews which he sends to clients. You can do that too.

This American trip diary of Suresh Sadagopan is one such piece where he shares his travel experience around attending financial planning conferences in USA in September 2016. We hope you like it and get inspired to write and share some non-finance stuffs with your clients and followers. It’s an interesting piece… enjoy the read.
