Are You Coachable?

All people are coachable, but they’re not always coachable at every point in time. Sometimes, people want to experience change, but they’re not currently open to adjusting their beliefs, behaviors, or mindset. Sometimes, they aren't comfortable with stepping outside their comfort zone and taking action. For the coaching relationship to be successful, it takes much dedication, honesty, openness, and effort on your part, as the coachee. It also involves introspection, a willingness to try on new things (even for just 7 days), and to make your life and business a "no excuses" zone. Part of the coaching relationship involves you interviewing perspective coaches to see if they're a good fit with what you’re looking for and if they have the right personality style and knowledge. Coaching is a collaboration. The coaching relationship, whether you apply private or group coaching, starts with a greater understanding of oneself and continues with business/career growth. Take the quiz and you'll discover how coachable you are -- RIGHT NOW -- or not! If you're not ready at this time, try again in six months. If it occurred to you to even take the quiz, you might be closer than you think. So don't give up on your growth! Take The Quiz to See if You're Coachable Your answers are 200% private! As you see, we don't ask you for your name, email, etc. Our system will add your score for you and give you your Coachability Index. Take the quiz now. You're

Financial Industry — In the Beginning Quiz

There had to be a different way to start a practice management workshop for financial advisors, I thought to myself. Then I picked up the book I was reading, a book that was recommended by Warren Buffet and Bill Gates -- "Business Adventures: Twelve Classic Tales from the World of Wall Street". And right there was the answer. Enjoying US history as I do, I decided to compile a list of questions I can pick and choose from and have my audience answer. I thought that others might enjoy answering these questions, and created a quiz about the beginnings of the industry I grew up in, have enjoyed thoroughly, continue to participate in, and have enjoyed watching morph in the past 40+ years. Here it is! How many questions can you answer without "googling"?

Business Coaching for (Newer) RIAs & Financial Advisors

New RIAs and financial advisors. Grow your financial firm on a strong footing. I love working with Top Advisors and my programs are geared towards their needs.  However, I'm always looking for affordable ways to help (newer) advisors to become Top Advisors.   For my purposes, you’re new” if you've been independent or working for a firm for less than 3 years and your revenues are under 250K.  OR you've been around the block a few times but your revenue is less than 250K a year. In the past few months, I've had conversations with many newer advisors who come to the gate with big lofty goals and small pocket books (purses, or attaché cases).  Their goals have one thing in common -- to be Top Advisors with a stellar team. They've attended my Business Simplified, a la carte programs – or not.  However, they've been asking for something longer-term AND within their budget.  They want to achieve success faster in areas that are most meaningful to them and feel that more calls/contact would help them reach their goals. "THRIVE” IS the name of a 1:1 program I'm offering to up to 4 newer advisors.  The program starts and is paid for before September 15, 2015.  THRIVE is a low cost, high impact, nuts-n-bolts program created to propel new advisors forward more quickly than you can do on your own. How we'll start:  We'll assess where you're at, create your vision for your firm's growth, and

Profit More This Summer!

WHAT IF "WHAT YOU DID THIS SUMMER" PUTS YOU ON TARGET TO MEET AND EXCEED YOUR 2015 GOALS? It's almost halfway through the year. Are you almost halfway to your 2015 goals? In January, you set goals to increase your AUM, work fewer hours, and spend more time at home . . . how are you doing with those? Time flies, doesn't it? Before you know it, you get sidetracked and end up bogged down in paperwork. And those resolutions seem far, far away. It's natural to just do the things you’re comfortable with for the sake of time and sanity. But doing the same things won’t get you to your goals! If you're REALLY serious about hitting your goals this year, you have time . . . 6 months is a lot of time, but you must act NOW! Don't let another holiday season take you by surprise. Come December, do you want to put your feet up by the fire while the snow is flying? Or hustle and bustle to the bitter end of the year? HOW YOU CAN MEET AND EXCEED YOUR GOALS IN THE NEXT 6 MONTHS Many of our clients say that coaching allows them to accomplish more in 3 months than they did the entire year (or more) before. Is this is the kind of solution you need? Is it time to hire a coach who can help you get you those kinds of results? If you've decided to do things

Google CEO, Eric Schmidt – “Everybody needs a coach”

As a Business Coach, I enjoyed listening to Mr. Schmidt's endorsement of how helpful it's been for him to have Coach. It's a big myth that only people in trouble or people who lack solutions or who can't solve their own problems hire coaches. The truth is that hiring a coach gives you another perspective on life/business, an ear to hear yourself speak outloud, and cheerleader, someone who helpfully questions you, and a person who provides you advice. In my case, I assist my clients to create plans and improve the operations and marketing of their firms. Enjoy the short video.
