Finding Success in Being Unapologetically Yourself With Matt Halloran



When we talk about what female advisors are experiencing in the financial industry today, we typically hear about it from women who are experiencing it firsthand. 

But today, we’re exploring the male perspective of female advisors from someone with over 20 years of industry experience.

In this episode, Adri sits down with Matt Halloran, the co-founder of ProudMouth and a podcasting expert, about his views on what needs to happen in the financial world to better embrace female financial advisors by leveraging their natural strengths as women.  

Adri and Matt discuss: 

  • The current industry divide between women and male advisors
  • The importance of being unapologetically yourself 
  • Why the financial industry is resisting the necessary changes to incorporate women advisors
  • What prevents women from going rogue from their firm and becoming independent 
  • Why being the “best-kept secret” can prevent you from achieving your true potential 
  • And more
