– 93% of advisors said they need or want to make more money.

– 83% said they want to work fewer hours per week and take more REAL vacation every year. 

– 98% said they would like to have a smaller total number of clients who each pay them more.

 

And, this is how they feel in the middle of a booming economy!

 

These problems don’t fix themselves. If you would like to improve your results in one, or more, of these areas, a great place to start is to join Bill Bachrach’s AdvisorRoadmap Virtual Training Platform right now.

P.S. The lamest excuse we hear from too many Advisors during a great economy and raging bull market is, “When the market is good, and everyone is making money and happy, you can’t get anyone to take the time to meet with a new advisor.” This is just BS.

How is it possible that smack in the middle of a booming economy and a raging stock market that 93% of the advisors we recently surveyed said they want, or NEED, to make more money?

 

Wouldn’t you think that of all problems you could have right now, money would NOT be one of them?

 

Here are few key questions to consider as you prepare for 2018:

 

  1. If you exclude asset growth, would your revenue in 2017 have grown, shrunk or stayed the same?
  2. What would the consequences be for your business and your personal life if, or when, the market corrects 10 – 20%?
  3. How many new clients did you sign in 2017? Are you happy with that number?
  4. How recently did you sign your last new client? More than a month ago?
  5. How many IDEAL Clients did you sign in 2017? When was the last one?

 

If you are anything other than ecstatic with your answers to these questions, what you need for 2018 is a better plan. A great place to start is to join Bill Bachrach’s AdvisorRoadmap Virtual Training Platform right now.

 

If you’re not crushing it in this environment… what are you going to do when it turns bad or returns to “normal?”

 

“Before I started working with Bachrach & Associates, I was charging $3k per client and now I am charging $45k per client. My current total revenue is $1,250,000 per year. What enabled me to do this was the skills and confidence that I gained applying the proven processes in the AdvisorRoadmapVirtual Training Platform. Not only has my business improved but also my personal life and health. I can now truly focus on the things that are most important to me.”    –Todd B.

Team Optimization: Becoming All You Can Be, Together

I frequently get questions about being an even better leader of your team. The article below by Mark Snow might give you some valuable insights.

 

I don’t use the word “team” loosely. It is entirely different than workgroup, department, or any other descriptor used for people who work next to one another. Literally or figuratively. Being part of a team connotes more than connected workflows. It’s about sharing a common mission, the selfless pursuit of goals, and the acceptance of roles that mean more to the result than they do to the individuals contributing to them.

 

That said – team harmony isn’t a given, even when well-meaning people have the right idea of “team” in mind. Conflict can (perhaps even should) occur. Each team is a unique mix. The dynamics created based on the predisposition and behaviors of the team-members can cause rifts, or worse. But with an individual sense of self-awareness – and an awareness of others on the team – every team can transcend the sum of its parts to reach heights no workgroup or department could ever hope to reach.

 

Here is a 4 Step-Starter Kit for Team Optimization

 

Step One: Gain an Understanding – Each team member is motivated, positively or negatively, by the undercurrent of the team behavior. But success begins from within. When each team member has a greater understanding of their own proclivities and preferences; how quickly they prefer to make decisions, the depth of their personal connection to other team members, their likely reactions to common team stress – and combine that with a similar knowledge of their team members – the sooner they will know when to push, when to hold back, and when to engage.

 

Step Two: Coming to Consensus – Most teams work with a nebulous mission and vision. Those are words commonly relegated to executive planning sessions, but they mean just as much to teams as they do to the organization as a whole. Teams that truly share a common mission go to bat for one another. They move towards goals with the same non-negotiable measures and behaviors in mind. When team members value different ideals, and act on them, the team acts like a ship with no rudder – sliding aimlessly from one to another. By committing to a team mission, you agree to make team decisions not only with the same long-term target in mind, but the same path as well.

 

Step Three: Avoiding the Negative – As I mentioned, teams will have conflict. But teams that adamantly avoid specific negative traits and behaviors have a huge advantage. By determining the negative traits to be avoided, for example; Being Pushy, or Indecisive, or Reactive, you can then determine what behaviors would constitute an infraction. Again, an example: A behavior of being Reactive may be to re-prioritize a critical long-term project several times in order to “put out fires”. When these behaviors are properly identified you will have a graphable measure, literally, of how often they are happening. If you could remove the most harmful commonly repeated team infractions, how much productivity do you think that may add?

 

Step Four: Becoming Personally Accountable – Now the hard part. Each team member should take time to think of the first three steps as they pertain to themselves, and document their own personal impact. It is always easier to advise others than it is to make changes in yourself, but if you are to become an optimal team there are 4 questions to openly answer.

 

If we are to become a great team:

  1. What am I not currently doing, that I need to begin doing right away?
  2. What do I need to stop doing today?
  3. What do I do well that I need to assert and leverage more often?
  4. What could benefit the team if I did less of?

 

For 15-years, Mark Snow has worked with hundreds of leading organizations on a variety of performance improvement initiatives specializing in the areas of leadership impact, strategic performance interventions, instructional design for classroom delivery, and defining success metrics to ensure alignment to business needs.

Referral / Prospect Tracking Spreadsheet – SAMPLE – Free Download to Help You Keep Track of Potential Business

In my work with business professionals, I find that they often say to me that they have prospects that they haven’t followed up with (for whatever reason), or they lost track of some of the referrals people gave them. First of all, it’s hard to believe that someone wouldn’t have a process for tracking their referrals/prospects because that is potential revenue – but apparently this happens and probably more than it should. So, I came up with a simple tracking spreadsheet to help my clients better know who they have in their pool of prospects so they know where they are at in their pipeline, and they don’t lose anyone (or drown them) on the way.

 

Below are some stats which you may find very interesting about following up with prospects/referrals. I’m curious what you think about these percentages.

  • 48% of Sales People Never follow up with a Prospect
  • 25% of Sales People Make a Second Contact and Stop
  • 12% of Sales People Only Make Three Contacts and Stop
  • Only 10% of Sales People Make More Than Three Contacts
  • 2% of Sales are made on the First Contact
  • 3% of Sales are made on the Second Contact
  • 5% of Sales are made on the Third Contact
  • 10% of Sales are made on the Fourth Contac
  • 80% of Sales are made on the fifth to the Twelfth Contact
