James O’Reilly and Corey Wastle started a Melbourne-based financial planning business called Verse Wealth in January 2015.
This is the fifth episode in a monthly series with James and Corey to follow their first year in business.
One of the challenging things about being a start-up, is that there are a lot of new ideas and tasks to get your head around and execute on. There's attracting clients, serving clients, building relationships, marketing and brand building, accounting, creating systems, looking after technology and training yourself.
So in this episode, we take a look at how Corey and James plan and prioritise in their business so they stay focused on the things that really matter.
