“For me the decision to go independent became self-evident after working for two regional banks. Plain and simple, I can be a better financial advisor to my clients by being an independent advisor. Since LPL Financial is the largest independent broker dealer in the nation*, I knew I’d affiliate with them. Partnering with Conor and the team at Good Life offered me a turnkey solution to move my practice to LPL without having to labor over building a website, developing a brand, and all the other back-office tasks. I get to focus my efforts on what I love, helping my clients, and leave the rest to my team at Good Life. It has proven to be the best business decision I’ve ever made,” said Mr. Strange.
