I’m 28 and deal with HNW clientele. Clients constantly ask what I do in my free time. Drinking with friends doesn’t quite resonate with this crowd.

What are some good organizations to join?

At least you say drinking with friends rather than blacking out.

Join organizations that share an interest with your personal self. You'll have more fun doing it and it will look good and resonate with clients when they see you're passionate about it.

Join something that you actually want to participate in. Never join just for business. They can sense it and stay away if they think you’re just trying to market

😂 NWM1 says AA! I’m 28 as well, the problem is all the older generation still think that these old clubs and associations are still relevant. Look at the number of young professionals not joining the dinosaur clubs and associations, find something your passionate about and give that your time. I feel like the “Advisors” on here telling you what to do and join are projecting their experience and likes, that’s like giving financial advice after a new client asks their first question 🤦‍♂️ .

Golf, swim, tennis, church, book club, synagogue, flag football, family, travel, more work...

HNW individuals gravitate toward the arts and charitable organizations. Become involved and demonstrate that you are a giver and not just a taker

Obviously you must do more in your free time other than drink with friends.

If you are dealing with HNW clients you must have experience and/or credentials that puts you in that position.

Focus on your strengths and build on that track record. You don’t have to lie. For example if your clients are into art, go to art shows or take an art class. Travel to interesting destinations and share your travel experiences. If you are a foodie share the ways you like to find new foods or restaurants.

It’s not complicated. Just be you!

My organization absorbed another and the former deputy PM became a branch head - a demotion. For org was more focused on tech dev and not delivering a product on a sked. New org is very focused on that. He is not a driving leader, but is the only one with the tech knowledge needed. He is retirement eligible. He has no heir apparent - previous org didn’t plan that way. If I move him under someone who is a driver - he retires and I lose the knowledge. If I don’t, we may not meet schedules. Advice?

Has anyone else ever had their brand account shadowbanned by TikTok? TikTok claims that we aren’t being shadowbanned but I’m calling bullshit on that.

TikToks solution when we called them out is that we need to invest more money, but our team is wildly against giving them anymore money for the foreseeable future.

Any feedback/suggestions would be helpful
