2 phone reviews each morning 2 face to face client reviews Rest of day is spent researching, prospecting, documenting, delegating things to my assistant and mentoring other colleagues who ask for help. Never boring because we’re always looking for how we can add value as a team. Many of these are social or family oriented in nature.
