I don't usually mention AVON Products, but today I am. I was an Avon Representative, for almost 2 years, when I was 12 years old! My mom had to sign me up since I was too young to legally complete a contract. But I ended up my best client because I couldn't get enough adults -- including my own family -- to believe in me. I swore that some day I would sell AVON again, and in August 2007, I took kept my promise to my younger self. While it's not my main business, and I don't spend too much time on it, it has been fun. And an opportunity to meet other women. AVON sells some personal care items you might be needing now including antibacterial gel cleansers.

World Mental Health Day is next Wednesday, October 10. First celebrated in 1992, World Mental Health Day is a day for global mental health education, awareness, and advocacy against social stigma. I wanted to do something for other business owners, who also deal with depression or ADHD. Entrepreneurs who struggle with PTSD, anxiety attacks, bi-polar, OCD, or a learning disorder have unique challenges. Within the challenges come gifts. At some time in life, I realized keeping lists helped me reach my goals much quicker. I picked up the skills of designing and using schedulers, forms, checklists etc. All these were originally things to help me stay more focused on what is important to me. By staying focused on the “prize”, I accomplish more than I could ever dream about. The systems I put into place as I traded and helped retail reps and advisors were so good (saved time and money) that my bosses bragged about them. Next thing I knew, I was helping others customize the systems and initiate them. I became the “go-to” person or “fixer” of trade and operations problems. They were “Maria problems” that got fixed, and then I would help departments make changes, so the problem didn’t happen again. Today, the work I do with clients is based on systems. the. Some of the systems may not be easy, but once used, they’ll become part of their business processes. We Need to Talk About It More If you’ve dealt with mental health
When I make a deadline...I like to keep it. Deadlines are one of the BEST tools for getting things done...but only if you adhere to them.

The top 10% of advisors actively market to a niche. But it's not easy to choose one. Especially when you’re good at many things and enjoy helping clients in many ways. As a result, when you attempt to focus and pick a niche all on your own, the exercise quickly becomes frustrating. And you give up! This is true for new advisors, as well as more established ones. Therefore, on Tuesday, June 19th, 2018 at 1 pm EST, I'm doing a live, free, small-group mini-training. We'll go for about 45 minutes, including training and some Q&A.

Here's a loose agenda. • Why niching is important • Why advisors need to niche • What niches to avoid (this was in the sequence as a teaser) • What is the biggest mistake in niching - not developing ICP (this was in the sequence as a teaser) • Then the list of questions in the 2nd email, which go along the lines of how to pick a good niche, how marketing is affected, etc. • Then answer specific questions from callers. >>>> If you finally want to focus and pick your niche – sign up to get the access codes
Why should an individual seeking a financial advisor contact YOU? Why should your clients risk their reputation and REFER you? What makes you STAND OUT? If you answered, “Great customer service!” or “Experience!” or "Fee-Based" your voice evaporated in a crowd of thousands. If you talk about your credentials, how you’re paid, or your fiduciary responsibility, you’ll only confuse the stranger you’ve just met. Wouldn’t you like to be SOUGHT OUT by prospects instead of constantly chasing them? As a financial advisor, you need to establish a connection with the clients you’re looking to serve. If prospects aren’t finding YOU, you are missing your niche. In this program, you’ll learn how to differentiate yourself so that you become the OBVIOUS CHOICE for clients. You’ll discover practical strategies for developing a niche that single you out as the “go-to” expert. Accept that you can’t be all things to all people and enjoy the benefits that go with hitting your niche. WHO SHOULD ATTEND? Financial advisors, in business 1-50 years who are: not currently running a niched firm and know it’s time to focus on one niche running a niched business but their niche just isn’t working out the way they thought 10-20 years away from retirement and are ready to create a niche as a way to purposefully grow their firm as part of their nest egg Learn more now JOIN US TO DISCOVER: Common mistakes financial advisors make around niching 3 specific steps to help you identify the best niche for you and your firm The 4 four niches you don’t want to choose (and why) Register and view.
