If you could corner the world’s top financial advisors and convince them to divulge the secrets of their success, it’s fairly obvious what questions you would ask them. You would want to find out what qualities they feel have led to their place among the best, how they set themselves apart from other advisors, what methods they used to get their first—and then, biggest—clients, and whether they had a vision starting out and how their professional game plan may have evolved since then. You would ask them how they structure their time, focus their marketing efforts, and determine their own niche. And then you would try to figure out what these top-of-the-game advisors all had in common.
Based on interviews with 15 mega-successful advisors, each doing millions of dollars worth of business every year, The Million-Dollar Financial Advisor distills their universal success principles into 13 distinct lessons, covering topics essential to your own success, such as how to build and focus on client relationships, have a top advisor mindset, develop a long-term approach, and much more.
In some cases, these principles may confirm what you are currently doing right; in others, they will identify a gap in your business practice that needs to be developed for you to attain the level of success you know you deserve.
The book lays out specific actions you can take in order to put these lessons into practice for your own business — and features two complete case studies: one of a “best of the best” advisor whose incredible career trajectory showcases the power of all the book’s principles working together; the other of a remarkable and inspiring career turnaround demonstrating that it’s never too late to reinvent yourself.
Brimming with practical advice from author David J. Mullen Jr. and expert insights from his interview subjects, The Million-Dollar Financial Advisor is a priceless success tool for any and all financial advisors.
