My name's Kali Hawlk, and I help financial advisors build better businesses by creating compelling content that helps attract prospects, capture leads, and convert clients. I started my content marketing firm to make business feel more human, especially in an industry that's sorely lacking in trust between the professionals and the consumers. I love helping financial advisors find authentic ways to attract new prospects to them (instead of chasing them around or hounding current clients for referrals). I believe inbound marketing, and content marketing specifically, can change the way we do business for the better. I'd love to show you how to use creatively written, well-crafted content to attract the exact people you want to work with. I know the power of great content marketing and I devoted the last few years to sharing that reality with advisors like you looking to grow and succeed.

James M. Dahle, MD is a practicing emergency physician who got sick of feeling ripped off by financial professionals and decided to do something about it. He underwent a lengthy self-education process in which he became an expert about personal finance and investing as it applies to those in the upper tax brackets. Jim then applied those principles in his own life and became a millionaire just seven years out of residency training. He realized that no one was teaching these critical financial principles to otherwise intelligent professionals during their training and so founded The White Coat Investor website to help them get a "fair shake" on Wall Street. His first book, begun immediately after attending FinCon in 2013, has remained a best seller on Amazon for over three years. He now criss-crosses the country helping physicians, dentists, and others stop doing dumb stuff with their money.
