Omar Mian, one of our Compass partners passed this link along to me (a Wall Street Journal Wealth Report article) and upon reading it I found that item #10 on the list of “Billionaire’s 20 Keys to Success” really jumped out at me: “Successful people do all the things unsuccessful people don’t want to do.”
I wanted to share that item with you on its own merits and also because it seems to really resonate in the context of all the “Occupy wherever” dramas being held throughout the US.
But as I reflected upon it more – my mind circled back to Omar, who just last month concluded a five year long purchase of another former Compass adviser’s business. Omar spent the last twenty quarters servicing his clients and paying out the fees and now it’s his own. Not only did he conduct himself professionally and honorably but he grew this business and has earned the respect and admiration of his clients, partners and colleagues.
Omar’s story is a classic American dream realized – he came from his native Pakistan to the US at the age of 13 to continue his education, and as is typical of educated immigrants speaks three languages. After journeyman years in the financial services business at New England Securities, Omar joined Compass in 2003, and became a partner in the firm in 2011. He works hard at his craft and it shows because: “Successful people do all the things unsuccessful people don’t want to do.”
Please join us in congratulating Omar on his success- you’ve earned it and you deserve it!
Compass grows it’s business almost entirely through the referrals of satisfied clients and professionals who know and work with us. If in your opinion there is anyone that we should be talking with about how we could help or advise them, we’d be happy and grateful to have that conversation.
