lucrative, long-lasting relationships … especially when it comes
to clients who are entrusting their financial futures to you. Adding
value to a new business relationship is a first step. Establishing
trust over time is the second step; one that ultimately moves the
relationship to the all-important higher level.
As the business relationship grows so

over any competition — that of truly knowing your clients' needs.
And when you are well equipped to meet your clients' needs, they're
compelled to do business with you. That is the culmination of
following the law of incubation.
