Member Advice with Charles Sims, Jr.

Tuesday, 31 December, 2019


It takes hard work, dedication and sometimes good old fashion luck to build a strong, profitable business. One of the best pieces of advice for entrepreneurs and emerging business owners is to get smart insights from people who have been there before.

See what Charles Sims, Jr., Founder of The Sims Financial Group, Inc. has to say on how he keeps his business growing. 

What’s the best advice you ever received?

The best advice I ever received was from a Mentor. He told me to “Never forget where I came from, and remain true to myself”


What do you wish you knew when you started your business?

I wish I had a better handle on how to market my firm from day one. Eventually I got much better at marketing my firm.


What’s your best time management hack?

My best time management trick is to keep a calendar, and allow it to help me manage my time efficiently.


Any other advice or tips you’d like to share?

Be a walking billboard for your business. Others cannot believe in your vision, if you do not!
