It is said that we start to remember people and build relationships with others as early as 5 years old. On an average, we meet or interact with at least 3 people a day. So, if we grow old and reach the age of 70, then we can assume that we have met around 71,000+ people in our lifetime.
A substantial number would be comprised of our family while some become our lifelong friends. Others are simply acquaintances while a few would be the ones whom we build our professional relationships with.
No matter how many people we meet, here are the 4 important people to have in our lives aside from our family and friends:
1. Family Doctor -- It is very ideal to have a family physician who knows our medical history. It is very convenient if we do not have to repeat ourselves all over again every time we go for medical consultations. Also, most family doctors feel responsible for monitoring your health thus, they would require you for annual physical examinations and regular check-ups which is very important.
2. Legal Advisor - Doing things correctly the first time is way cheaper than trying to fix them. Thus, it is a must that we do not allow any errors when making important decisions, especially for our business. By having a legal adviser, we minimize legal risks and cost which will give us the peace of mind when closing contracts and agreements.
3. Life Coaches and Mentors - Life coaches or mentors are more than just a person telling you what to do. Instead, they are ones who can help us stay focused on our goals and help stir us in the right direction in case we get lost or overwhelmed. They can also help us realize our full potential and what we are capable of.
In the Philippines, some of the most known life coaches or mentors are Bo Sanchez, Sha Nacino, Francis Kong, Chinkee Tan and Dean Pax Lapid.
4. Financial Advisor - Aside from our physical and mental well-being, it is also very important to have someone who can help us take care of our financial well-being and assist us in reaching our financial goals. Though a lot can pose themselves as an insurance agent offering financial plans or insurance, it is very important that we find a financial advisor whom we can trust.
A good financial advisor is someone who knows their products well and knows how to match the product with the customer's needs --- an important characteristic that I have found from Sunlife Financial Advisors. They are well-trained and do not promise much just to close a sale. Instead, they deliver and bring results when the client needs it most. They also offer Money for Life, a customizable financial planning program to really help clients reach their financial goals.
So, in case you still do not have a Financial Advisor in your life, then look for someone from Sunlife Financial and rest assured you will be taken cared of.
or if you feel that you can help more people by being a financial advisor yourself, then start a BrighterLife Career. If you are from Bacolod, you can contact Vlad at 0999-8823316 or visit www.sunlife.com.ph for more details.
