Want to grow revenues with less work? (Don’t we all?). I recently spoke to 500 financial advisors at the Million Dollar Round Table Annual Conference. This international conference was attended by 7000 top life insurance and advisor producers representing over 80 countries.
For those who may not be familiar with the organization, Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT) membership is recognized internationally as the standard of sales excellence in the life insurance and financial services business. Therefore I was delighted to be selected as one of 100 speakers for this top-producer event.
Titled “One Size Not Fit All” the talk provided practical, high-value content to help advisors choose the best growth strategies for their specific stage of business.
Using the metaphor of golf from my ebook (Ace Your Financial Advisor Game)….the session highlighted how three advisors dramatically increased revenues – with less work – by focusing on the most productive strategies for their specific practice, instead of the latest quick-fix solutions that failed to deliver on promised results.
The audience liked what they heard… and MDRT chose to highlight my session in their July issue of Round the Table. This attractive digital publication is filled with great ideas from top financial industry colleagues and business strategist… I am including the link for your enjoyment and knowledge enhancement.http://tinyurl.com/cw8nd2n.

- “My high net worth clients have pulled hugh sums out of the market – and I can’t get them to consider better alternatives.
- “How do I respond to comments that lump me in with “greedy Wall Street” or “evil insurance” crooks?
- My former client’s heirs have been unwilling to meet with me – and seem ready to transfer their assets elsewhere.”
These remarks are from some of the financial professionals I know frustrated by the number of people resisting their advice right now. The problem is, it’s not their fault – the economy is wildly unpredictable and investors are more wary than ever.
However, some advisors have unlocked the key to client trust, and are enjoying more business than they expected. Read More→
In today’s chaotic financial environment, where people in general are feeling unsafe to take risks, a successful advisor needs more than the usual toolkit of sales and business skills to survive.
