Earlier this year, TD Ameritrade Institutional launched the Human Finance Project a movement designed to elevate the RIA model and help redefine what it means to be a Financial Advisor. With her powerful storytelling skills, Taryn Grimes was selected to act as our moderator in the development of our Human Finance Project interviews. This blog post is part of a larger series detailing Taryn’s experiences and observations in being an integral part of the project–helping advisors tell their unique stories.
With over 150 RIA interviews under my belt, I feel grateful to The Human Finance Project. When all of this began, I was hesitant to believe that I’d hear stories this unique and compassionate. But they keep coming.
I’ve spoken with war heroes, rabbis, stand-up comics, and children of single parents who learned the importance of making ends meet. Every tale has been vastly different, but with similar qualities. Each detail of their story revealed good character, respectfulness, and integrity. But most of all, they seemed to have found a strong sense of purpose, which got me thinking.
What is purpose? And how do you find it?
