Welcome to My New Era

November 12, 2012

I have been writing for some time now on the ‘intersection of leadership, advice and innovation’ and about why we are in the early stages of a new era of wealth management.

Today, my blog starts a new era too.

First, I am expanding the name of my eponymous blog from simply “jpnicols.com” to “Affluent Strategies by JP Nicols”.

The current web address is not changing, although you will soon be able to access the same site and the same content at http://www.AffluentStrategies.com as well. One site, two URLs.


What started as simply an outlet for me to express my observations and ideas has expanded into something that has grown beyond my expectations, and this site is now closing in on 10,000 views from more than 30 countries.

A common thread in most everything I have written has been to consider the potential implications for financial advisors working with affluent and high net worth clients, and simply putting my name in the browser window is probably less than descriptive for new and prospective readers.

Secondly, since I have started another website for my consulting firm clientific (and I would love it if you would visit me there too), I needed to make some small changes to keep each site unique and distinctive. On clientific.net I will focus more on the ‘advice’ component– practical and tactical ideas and solutions specifically for wealth management firms and fintech companies who serve the affluent market.

That will give me a little more room here to branch out just a little wider to cover other things I find interesting under the ‘leadership’ and ‘innovation’ signs of the intersection. I have been pleasantly surprised at the level of interest in these topics from far outside of the wealth management industry, and I will continue to spend time on general leadership and entrepreneurism topics.

I am also updating the color scheme a little bit and may undertake some other other design updates in the coming weeks to improve the user experience, but all of the existing content and tags will remain.

Thanks for reading and helping me get to this point. I hope you will find these changes a positive way to kick off a new era. Feel free to drop me a line and give me feedback so I can keep it useful for you.

  1. First, congratulations on your blog’s success. Second, we should take this blog post as a call to action for ourselves. We should always be looking at ways to innovate, change and move forward to greater opportunity, success and victory. This self-reflection is a form of re-engineering that is vital to remaining fresh, proactive and effective. Every so often, we should be moving into a new era for ourselves and the people we work with and serve. So, thanks for the advice.

  2. I like it, JP!

  3. Subtle changes with same great header and smile. Keep up the great work on Twitter and Clientific
