Meet Skylight's New Partner Jonathan Goldston
What does it mean to you to become a partner at the firm?
A great sense of pride and accomplishment. It means I am properly fulfilling my role as my client’s most trusted advisor, providing ongoing support to my fellow associates, and helping the organization thrive.
How do you feel your appointment can be helpful to your practice as well as Skylight Financial Group as a whole?
It’s a confirmation that my staff and I are doing the right things for those who have entrusted us with their lives. I think it also serves as validation that I am here for the long term, and I believe there is no better place to offer life planning than the Skylight Financial Group.
What made you want to work in this field?
An unwavering desire to help others succeed, and get the most they can from life.
What advice would you offer others looking to advance their financial services career?
If your biggest “wins” are not witnessing those who you serve obtain their goals and desires, you’re in the wrong field. Go above and beyond what is expected. Read Emerson’s essay on Compensation, and live it. Be passionate about what you do, and learn how to do it well. No matter how small it may be, never end a day without having learned something new (either about you or your business).
Let’s assume you never entered the workplace of the financial world, what was that one job you thought you wanted?
A teaching pro in golf.
Tell us something about you that people will not find in your ‘official’ bio that shows a side unknown to us and the people you might know.
I would do almost anything to race on the Circuit de la Sarthe (the old configuration), the road course used in the 24 Hours of LeMans.
