What is iMarkets Live and should you look into it.

To start I’ve read a book called Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki in fact I’ve read it several times. In the book he talks about how 5% of the individuals who control 95% of world’s wealth on the right side of a quadrant with business owners and investors.

The Number of Financial Advisers are Dropping but the need is growing

The Number of Financial Advisers are Dropping but the need is growing. What does this mean for you?

With too few new financial advisers coming into the industry, the decline of financial advisers shows no signs of slowing. In 2015 a 2.4% annual decline in advisers, as advisers continue to retire.

The number of financial advisers in the United States fell by 1.3% — or approximately 4,000, in 2011, and will decline by another 18,600 over the next five years, according to global research firm Cerulli Associates Inc.

“The continual aging of the industry is not being offset by the influx of new talent,” said Tyler Cloherty, associate director at Cerulli. “The wirehouses are starting to train people again, but it’s just not enough to make up for the number of advisers retiring and leaving the industry.”

The independent broker-dealers will suffer an even more dramatic decline, according to Cerulli projections. Mr. Cloherty expects that they will lose 18,000 advisers by the end of 2016, an annual attrition rate of 5%.

Is the Follow Up important

So how important is the Follow Up?

So I want to talk to you about the art of follow-up. There’s a statistic out from the national sales executive Association on follow ups.

  • 48% of salespeople never follow up with a prospect.
  • 25% of sales people make a second follow up contact and stop.
  • 12% of sales people only make 3 follow up contacts and stop.
  • Only 10% of salespeople make more than three follow up contacts

Now listen to this!

  • 2% of sales are made on the first follow up Contact.
  • 3% of sales are made on the second follow up contact.
  • 5% of sales are made on the Third follow up Contact.
  • 10% of sales are made on the 4th follow up contact.
  • 80% of sales are made on the 5th to the 12th follow up contact.

That is a very astounding point if you look at it from the perspective of follow-Is the Follow Up importantup. If we don’t follow up properly it’s usually because of a couple of reasons. The number one reason people do not follow up is fear. They allow fear to lead them. They don’t want to bother people which is just basically fear of the people. It’s the fear of calling people or getting a no or the fear of picking up the phone and talk to that person again. These are fears that you have to get over.

How my gym experience gave me Success in Business and at the Gym

I wanted to share with you guys a little bit of business principle and actually Success in Business and at the GymHealth principal too. I got to the gym this morning and I get on the elliptical like I do every morning. I actually took the weekend off, but I got on the elliptical this morning and my legs are burning I have a bad knee and it start of hurt and I looked down at the clock and I’d only been on it 3 and a half minutes. I’m like oh crap I’m not going to get much accomplished today at all. I normally do 30 minutes but today I set my goal to 15 minutes because of my discomfort. Normally I like to push myself to accomplish what I want to accomplish in business and health. I don’t like to go to the gym but I go because I like the results and in businesses I push myself because I want the results not because it’s fun,  any way I ended up doing over 30 minutes on the elliptical.

You Will Not Survive the Middle Class

It’s true, You Will Not Survive the Middle Class

You Will Not Survive the Middle ClassLook, the political debates and campaigns have talked a lot about one thing—the Middle Class. America has been sold the Middle Class freedom model for generations. The freedom to make choices, the freedom to do what you want with your life, live where you want, be who you want—but the reality is the Middle Class is a trap. It’s a prison that has been sold as a sanctuary for generations by the government and perpetuated by the media—that is controlled by the government.
“The Middle Class is safe. The Middle Class is freedom. The Middle Class is the goal.”
All lies sold to you to keep you a slave. You must free yourself. You must take risk. You must be committed to greatness.
